This simple Cheesy Vegan Roasted Red Pepper Dip will be the hit of the party! Made with tofu ricotta, it is sure to please.
Sometimes I mix ingredients for a portion of a recipe that are so good that they deserve to be their own recipe. That's what happened here.
I mixed roasted red pepper with tofu ricotta for a vegan manicotti filling and decided the filling needed to be a dip recipe. The tofu ricotta has been a huge hit on the blog and the addition of roasted red pepper elevates it a notch.
This dip goes well with veggies and crackers, as well as a spread on a sandwich.
How to Make This Recipe
- First, roast a red pepper. Slice it in half and place it on a parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil on top and roast in the oven until charred. You could also use a store-bought roasted red pepper if you're in a hurry.
- Make the tofu ricotta by mixing tofu, olive oil, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, dried basil, and salt and pepper in a food processor.
- Add the roasted red pepper to the tofu ricotta, and mix until creamy.

- You can make the roasted red pepper in advance, like the day before, or you could make the tofu ricotta the day before.
- If you're into batch cooking and meal prepping, make a double batch of this recipe and use half in Vegan Manicotti or lasagna.
How Long Will It Last?
