Ravioli is a popular Italian dish, first mentioned in the 14th century in Venice. Instead of the tomato-meat sauce, here are plant-based recipes to try. You can buy ravioli-making machines. But unless you make ravioli all the time, it’s easier just to make the squares yourself with a pizza cutter, then crimping the edges with a fork. Keep fresh dough away from pets, as it could expand in the stomach. Also keep these dishes away from pets (not real meat, may contain pet-toxic ingredients like garlic, onion, mushrooms, faux meats).
Mushroom Ravioli with Vegan Pesto (So Vegan) is made with shop-bought vegan pesto for quickness, and uses recyclable baking paper to avoid plastic. No pasta maker needed, this is all done by hand, and the optional turmeric turns the ravioli yellow, but is not essential.
Vegan Ravioli with Pumpkin & Sage Butter (Eat This) is a German recipe, just translate by right-clicking. If you don’t have a ravioli machine, you can just cut 5cm squares out of pasta dough, put a teaspoon of filling on each half, moisten the edges with water, cover with dough and press with fork prongs to seal.
Vegan Ravioli with Herb Tofu Ricotta (Sweet Simple Vegan) is a nice recipe for a special Italian meal. Ravioli is a favourite dish of pasta containing a ricotta filling, this one is made from tofu that has no taste, so justs absorbs the taste of whatever it’s cooked with. Serve with fresh basil.
