Raw Beet Ravioli with Cashew Cheese
Prep time
Total time
Simple raw beet ravioli with a creamy vegan cashew cheese filling and apple, walnut, sage topping. Only 10 ingredients and a few minutes to prepare!
Recipe type: Main, Appetizer
Cuisine: Raw, Vegan, Gluten-Free
Serves: 4
for the cashew cheese:
  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked 2 hours (or overnight), rinsed and drained
  • ¼ cup filtered water
  • juice from 1 lemon (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons white miso
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • fine sea salt, to taste
for the ravioli:
  • 1 bunch beets (at least 2 inches diameter), sliced very thin
  • 1 apple, cored and diced
  • 1 handful chopped walnuts
  • 1 small handful fresh sage leaves, torn
  1. Make the cashew cheese: Add all of the ingredients to a high-speed blender. Process until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Make the ravioli: Arrange half the beet slices flat on a work surface. Place a dollop of cashew cheese onto half of each slice, then fold the other half over the cashew cheese, pressing down gently to seal them. Sprinkle each ravioli with diced apple, walnuts, and fresh sage.
It's best to use a mandolin to slice the beets very thin (they should be 1/16 inch or less). I use and recommend this mandolin.
