Cashew Cheese Filling
1. Start by making the cashew cheese. Soak the nuts for at least a couple hours to get the perfect texture.
2. Add all the cashew cheese ingredients to a blender: cashews, nutritional yeast, garlic, shallot, green onion, and lemon juice.
3. Blend on high until you have a smooth paste, like a ricotta cheese texture. Add salt and paper to taste.
Raw Vegan Ravioli
1. Marinate the sliced turnips. Toss with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper, and set aside to help give the turnip a pasta texture.
2. Assemble the ravioli. Place a turnip slice on a place, and top with a dollop of cashew cheese filling. Top with another turnip slice, and repeat until you’ve used all your turnip slices.
Sun Dried Tomato Sauce
1. Add sundried tomato sauce ingredients to a blender: tomatoes, basil, walnuts, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
2. Pulse a few times, and drizzle olive oil in while the blender is still running.
3. Drizzle in water until you reach your desired consistency.
4. Spoon the sauce over the ravioli, and add your desired garnish.
