6-8 people


  • 1-1/2 cups part skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Five-inch sprig of fresh basil, washed and dried
  • 1 clove fresh garlic, smashed
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt or to taste


  • Place the ingredients inside the bowl of a food processor or blender and process until creamy and smooth in consistency. Adjust seasoning and store tightly in the refrigerator for up to three days.
  • NOTE: With an aioli-like consistency but with no eggs, this spread is smooth and rich. Serve as a dip, slather it on toasted bread, spread it on grilled fish or use as a substitute for mayonnaise.
