Raw Beet Ravioli
From the Kitchen at Bloom Cafe
Try this creative twist on Ravioli that incorporates cashew cheese and parsley pesto! Great for lunch, dinner or a healthy and satisfying snack.
3 cups cashews, soaked for 2 hours 1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon salt
2 green onions, minced (white and some green parts) 2 tablespoons tarragon
Drain cashews, place in food processor with lemon juice, yeast and salt and blend until smooth. Add green onions and tarragon and blend a little more to mix.
4 cups parsley
1/2 cup or more olive oil 1/4 cup nuts, your choice 1/2 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
Place all pesto ingredients in food processor and blend.
Slice beets very thinly on mandolin (red or candy stripe look best). Rub with olive oil and lemon juice to soften. To assemble, place some beet slices on plates or a platter, adding about 1 tablespoon of cashew cheese on each slice. Cover with another beet slice, top with a bit of parsley pesto.
