Raw Valentine Ravioli

One plate, two forks...

...A girl can dream, can't she? Ha hahha:)

Well, at least I know there are some raw foodies out there that have someone special in their life that would just love to share a beautiful plate of raw ravioli:)

Click here for this lovely recipe from raw chef Sarma Melngailis, featured at G Living.

I reduced the recipe to about about 1/3, so many of the ingredient amounts were estimated:)

Today I used both red and golden beets. The golden beets have a slightly milder flavor than the red, but I think they both worked well in the recipe. Of course, I cut them into little heart shapes for Valentines Day:)

I used an orange bell pepper for the delicious sauce, and subbed cashews for the pine nuts called for.

This fabulous meal came together very quickly and easily, and I thought it was awesome! Such a beautiful blend of flavors:)

If you haven't had beet ravioli before, this would be an awesome recipe to try!



Thank you to Sarma for sharing this recipe online for us all to enjoy!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!!

I never had beet ravioli! No beets around right now, but as soon as they're back in season, I'll make this! I might plant some myself to make sure they are lovely and fresh :) Thank you :)

I have a confession...I'm not a huge raw beet fan. I'd love to figure out a different veg to try this with. Maybe jicama?

Hi Joanna~ I may try to have a garden this year for the first time! I would live to try planting beets, too.

Hi bitt~I would love to know if jicama works for this...my other fav for rawvioli is turnip:)

Thanks, HippiMom!

~kelli~ It was no problem for me to inhale, um... I mean savor... this plate all by myself:)

I always have a beet or two around for juicing, too:)
