Beetroot Ravioli

Beetroot Ravioli
By Chad Sarno
Posted on GreenChefs here

This is one of my favorite and easiest versions of raw ravioli. In my Istanbul restaurant we offer many small plates, encouraging our guests to share and experience many options off of the menu. I offered this dish on our opening menu and it was by far the best selling small plate we offered for the winter and spring. It is a great starter or amusé for any Mediterranean focused meal, really giving the diner that first delicious introduction of what is to follow. The sweetness of the beetroot, and cashew based cheese is balanced out very nicely with the acid of the balsamic and spiciness of the garlic oil.


For the Ravioli:
1 Large Beet, slice paper thin rounds and marinated in garlic oil, salt and pepper
½ Cup Cashew Herb Bourson Cheese (see recipe)
Aged Balsamic
Green Garlic Oil (see recipe)
Minced Chives
Course Sea Salt to taste
Fresh Cracked Black Pepper

Allow sliced beets to marinate for minimum 1 hour. Lay sliced beets out, continue to scoop one tablespoon or so of the cashew cheese in center of each, cover with another sliced beet to complete the ravioli.

For the Cashew Bourson:

2 Cups Cashews, soaked 12-14 hours
¾ Teaspoon *New Chapter Probiotics dissolved in 1 cup warm filtered water,
or 1 cup fresh rejuvelac (or other high quality powder probiotic)
2 TB nutritional yeast, small flake
½ TB onion powder
1 ½ TB chives fine diced
2 TB parsley fine minced
2 TB shallots fine minced
1 Tsp sea salt
Cracked black pepper

In highspeed blender, blend the soaked cashews with probiotics and luke warm water, or rejuvelac, until smooth.

Allow to sit in glass bowl covered with towel in warm place for 14-16 hours to culture.
When finished culturing handmix in remaining ingredients, and serve.

For the Green Garlic Oil:
1 Cup Fresh Chives
½ Cup Parsley, chopped
2 Cups Organic Grape Seed, or mild organic olive oil
Pinch of Sea Salt
3 TB Young Garlic, coarsely chopped

In high speed blender, blend the chives, parsley, and sea salt well. Usng fine mesh strainer or chinoise, pour mixture though, slowly stirring out the oil. Discard pulp, or use in another recipe. Toss the chopped garlic in the ‘chive oil’, and allow to site for 1 day to infuse. To use, using a dropper, or small spoon, drizzle on ravioli for an added kick of flavor

To Serve:
On rectangle plate, place 6 ravioli in a line on center of plate. Finish each with minced chives, aged balsamic, cracked pepper and pinch of course sea salt.
