Servings 4


  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 cup vegan ricotta or chevre-style store-bought cheese
  • 1-2 dates, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon z'aatar


  • Bring orange juice and spices to a boil. Reduce temperature to a
    gentle boil until the orange juice is reduced to the consistency of light syrup (about ten minutes). The mixture will reduce by half but still look like liquid.
  • Let cool to room temp and the mixture will thicken further.
  • Spread your fave cheese across a serving bowl or plate,
    drizzle with orange reduction and top with dates and almonds. Serve with your favourite bread or crackers.


Note: if using vegan ricotta, whip in a little more water as it processes to have a lighter, creamier texture!
