Tofu Ricotta


Stovetop Asparagus

  • Add asparagus and olive oil to a skillet. Sauté for about 7-10 minutes flipping halfway through with a spatula.

Tofu Ricotta

  • Add all of the ingredients for the tofu ricotta into a food processor and combine until smooth. You may have to scrape the edges once or twice or add a tiny bit of water to get things moving. Add salt to taste and set aside.

Spicy Bread Crumbs

  • Add all of the ingredients into a small skillet on low. Cook the mixture until the bread crumbs are browned and the spices are fragrant – about 5 minutes.


  • On a large plate, spread the tofu ricotta evenly and then lay asparagus spears on top. Top with salt and pepper to taste. Then top with bread crumbs and serve.
