This raw ravioli recipe was a big hit at our home and everyone loved it. The ravioli is made from thin slices of beets and stuffed with a flavorful cashew cheese and wilted spinach. The rocket sauce, made from arugula, aka rocket leaves, and pine nuts complimented the ravioli wonderfully. It is as delicious as it is is beautiful and quite easy to make as well. Great for company!

Beet Ravioli Recipe with Cashew Cheese and Wilted Spinach

Ingredients

1 large Beet
1 cup (approx.) Cashew Pine Nut Cheese (see recipe below)
2 cups Spinach, packed
2 Tbsp Olive oil
1 Tbsp Lemon juice
Rocket Sauce to serve with ravioli (see recipe below)

Directions

Slice beet very thinly with a knife or mandolin. They need to be very thin, thin enough to fold over without breaking. Put the beet slices in a bowl with one tablespoon each of olive oil and lemon juice. Coat slices by separating and moving around in the liquid and then let sit to marinate.

Making the wilted spinach:
Mix the spinach leaves with one tablespoon of olive oil to coat them and spread out on a teflex sheet and set in the dehydrator. Dehydrated at 115 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour to soften and wilt leaves.

Making the ravioli:
Take a beet slice and spoon a tablespoon, or a couple teaspoons depending on size of beet slice, of cashew cheese onto one side. On top of the cheese place a few wilted spinach leaves and fold over the upper beet slice to make your ravioli and set aside. Continue in this manner making up a dozen or more beet slices. Plan on 5 to 6 raviolis per serving.

To plate:
Spread out some of the rocket sauce onto a plate. I used about a quarter cup per serving. Lay a few arugula, or rocket, leaves on plate and arrange six raviolis on top. Add a few more leaves for garnish if desired.

Peel and slice beets very thinly. A mandolin or thin slicing blade on slicer or food processor would be ideal, but I cut my slices by hand with a knife. The ceramic knives stay very sharp and that helped. Check out ceramic knives on my Resource page; they’re awesome!

Squeeze lemon juice and drizzle it and olive oil over sliced beets in a bowl. Move around the slices to cover them on each side with marinade mixture.
