Hi Peppermint! You should visit a few vegan cooking sites as they don't use any dairy and have wonderful subsititutes. Let me have a quick look around and see what I can find.

Edited to add:

I forgot about this one! I saw it a few weeks back in a lasagne recipe.

Dairy Free Soft Cheese
450g/1lb Firm Tofu
1/2 Teasp Grated Nutmeg
1/2 Teasp Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
90ml/3fl.oz. Olive Oil


1. Place 3/4 of the tofu in large mixing bowl together with the remaining ingredients and mash until smooth.

2. Add sufficient of the remaining tofu to achieve the desired consistency.

Use to replace soft cheeses, such as Ricotta, in pasta dishes.
