Ah; ok...have you considered making your own? It's very easy to make...just do a search to find a recipe...

emoticon unfortunately I haven't been able to find a vegan/dairy free ricotta though,the closest i have found is toffutti cream cheese,but it's quite high in fat/cal content ,so was looking for the vegan quark or something similar,low cal/fat content

Actually, I think you'd be better off buying Ricotta rather than Yoghurt...yoghurt is far too runny and sweet to be useful if you are using it in baking or cooking...

Where do you live? I don't know of any US company that would make this. Your best bet is probably to get vegan yogurt and strain it. Get some cheesecloth and a fine mesh strainer and set it over a bowl in the refrigerator. The first time you'll have to watch it carefully to see how long it needs to get to the thickness you like. It won't be exactly like quark, but it's probably the closest you can come.

The only recipe I could find that I could read was an Italian one that says the same, but adds salt and and a little lemon or lime juice to the yogurt before straining. The other recipes are all in German, and the only thing I know how to say in German is "I am a large train station." Not very helpful.

Vegan cream cheese would be the next best substitute, probably. Again, if it's for a recipe, add some lemon juice or vinegar to give it the right sharpness.
