Simple Red Pepper Bruschetta With Homemade Roasted Garlic Ricotta [Vegan]

If you enjoy recipes like this, we highly recommend downloading the Food Monster App, it's available for both Android and iPhone and has free and paid versions. The app is loaded with thousands of allergy-friendly & vegan recipes/cooking tips, has hundreds of search filters and features like bookmarking, meal plans and more! The app shows you how having diet/health/food preferences can be full of delicious abundance rather than restrictions!

This recipe is about as easy as it gets, and it's so versatile! You can season the bruschetta mixture with your favorite spices, and if fresh tomatoes and peppers aren't available, you can substitute the veggies with whatever you like. It all tastes good on top of toast (and with a generous smear of creamy, garlicky homemade cashew ricotta)! If you have extra bruschetta mixture left over, you can toss it with pasta for a fresh and quick meal.

Simple Red Pepper Bruschetta With Homemade Roasted Garlic Ricotta [Vegan]

This Recipe is :



  • 1 large tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup white onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1-2 teaspoons fine-grain sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast

Roasted Garlic Ricotta:

  • 1 1/2 cups cashews, soaked for at least four hours and drained
  • 1 head of roasted garlic (see below)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons miso
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
  • Your favorite bread, for toasting


To Make the Bruschetta:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, toss together and chill until needed.

To Roast the Garlic:

  1. Cut off the top of the head of garlic, top with olive oil, wrap in foil and roast at 400°F for 40 minutes.

To Make the Ricotta:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, using only half of the head of roasted garlic to start. Blend on high, until the mixture starts to become smooth and creamy, 1-2 minutes. If needed, add additional water to keep mixture blending. Taste and add more roasted garlic according to taste. Transfer to a sealed container and refrigerate for an hour before serving.


  1. Toast your bread and spread with a generous amount of ricotta. Top with the tomato and pepper mixture. Eat!
