The Recipe How-To

 Who knew making ravioli could be so easy and fun?
Who knew making ravioli could be so easy and fun?

Now that we got all the ingredients together, it’s time to start making the vegan ravioli from scratch. Trust me, it’s going to be a piece of cake!

Step 1: Prepare the Ravioli Filling

To make the filling for our delicious vegan ravioli recipe, take one block of extra firm tofu and crumble it in a large bowl. Add in some minced garlic cloves, chopped rosemary and a pinch of sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Next, stir in some of your favorite vegetables like chopped spinach, seeded and diced red bell pepper, sliced mushrooms, soaked and chopped sun-dried tomatoes, and chopped fresh chives into the mixture.

Step 2: Make the Ravioli Dough

Homemade vegan ravioli dough is easy to make – all you need is just two ingredients – all-purpose flour and water. In a large mixing bowl, combine two cups of all-purpose flour with a teaspoon of salt. Add in just enough water (about a cup) to form a smooth, non-sticky dough. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead it for about 10 minutes. Divide the dough into equal portions and roll each section out into a thin sheet using a rolling pin.

Step 3: Assemble Your Vegan Ravioli

Once you have your ravioli dough sheets ready, it’s time to put everything together! Place small spoonfuls of the prepared tofu vegetable mixture at equal intervals along one half of each rolled-out ravioli sheet. Wet your fingers with water and run them around each portion of filling so that they stick well together when pressed. Fold the other half of each sheet over the filling portion carefully; seal each ravioli by gently pressing its edges together with your fingertips. Use a ravioli cutter knife or round cookie cutter to cut out individual raviolis.

Step 4: Cook the Raviolis

In a pot full of boiling salted water, carefully drop in the raviolis. Stir gently as needed so that they don’t stick together while cooking. Boil for around five to six minutes until they float on top of the boiling water. Drain any excess water from them.

Step 5: Serve Your Vegan Raviolis

Transfer your cooked vegetarian raviolis onto plates with some greens on the side! Drizzle over some vegan parmesan cheese, toasted sunflower seeds, and chopped basil as desired. If you want an extra kick or tanginess, you can also top off with some fresh lemon juice or tomato sauce.

Now that you know how to make your own simple vegan raviolis from scratch, there’s no excuse not to give it a try! Once you get used to making these yourself, you will never want

Substitutions and Variations

Now, let’s talk about some creative ways to switch up this vegan ravioli recipe. I’m a big believer that cooking is an art form, and that means there’s always room for experimentation and improvisation!

For starters, you don’t necessarily have to use the same filling ingredients as I did in this recipe. Don’t get me wrong, spinach, mushrooms, and tofu make for a delicious combination. But if there are other veggies or proteins you prefer, feel free to swap them in. Some other ideas could be roasted eggplant, bell peppers, zucchini, or tempeh.

I also used wonton wrappers in this recipe as a shortcut for making homemade pasta. Now, you could certainly make your own vegan ravioli dough from scratch if you have the time and patience—but if not, wonton wrappers work just fine! However, if you’re feeling adventurous and want to try making your own dough (which I highly recommend), there are plenty of recipes out there using flour, water, and sometimes oil.

As for the seasoning and sauce options, the possibilities are endless. You could add some fresh herbs like basil or thyme to your filling mixture. Or maybe top your cooked ravioli off with a drizzle of vegan brown butter sauce or some tomato sauce. If cheese is something you’re really craving (even though our recipe is dairy-free!), sprinkle some vegan parmesan cheese over the top.

And finally, let’s talk sweet ravioli! Yes, it sounds strange at first—but have you ever tried a dessert ravioli? You could fill them with ingredients like almond ricotta, sweet potato puree, butternut squash puree, or even pumpkin pie filling! Serve them up with some cinnamon sugar on top or a scoop of vegan ice cream.

Remember: don’t be afraid to get creative with your cooking! The kitchen is your canvas—so let your taste buds guide your artistic vision.

Now that your vegan ravioli masterpiece is complete, it’s time to enjoy your culinary creation! This dish is the perfect comfort food for any occasion, and it pairs well with a variety of sides and sauces.

For a simple yet satisfying meal, I recommend serving your vegan ravioli alongside a fresh green salad with a tangy dressing. The acidity from the lemon juice and sun-dried tomatoes in the ravioli filling will complement the greens wonderfully.

If you’re feeling more adventurous, try pairing your vegan ravioli with a rich and flavorful tomato sauce. The garlic cloves and rosemary in the recipe add depth to the filling and are a perfect match for a classic tomato sauce. You can even sprinkle some vegan parmesan cheese on top for added flavor.

Another great option is pairing your ravioli with sautéed mushrooms or roasted red bell pepper. These earthy and sweet flavors bring out the nuttiness of the sunflower seeds in the filling.

Feeling fancy? Brown some vegan butter in a pan and toss it with fresh spinach or chives. This will give your vegan ravioli a touch of elegance that’s perfect for date night or special occasions.

Overall, this easy vegan ravioli recipe is versatile and pairs perfectly with several sides and sauces. So be creative, have fun with your pairing options, and most importantly, enjoy every bite of this fantastic dish!

Now let’s talk about what to do with the leftovers of these savory vegan ravioli. One thing you can do to save time is to make a large batch of ravioli filling and dough ahead of time. Once you have your vegan ravioli ready and cooked, you can store them for later use.

To store the cooked vegan ravioli, simply place them in an airtight container or a ziplock bag in the refrigerator. They will stay good for up to 3 days. When reheating the vegan ravioli, simply place them in boiling water for 1-2 minutes or until heated through.

If you’re planning on making the ravioli ahead of time, but want to cook them when ready to serve, you can freeze them. To freeze the uncooked vegan ravioli, place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze until hard. Then transfer them into a freezer-safe container or bag and store for up to 2 months.

When you’re ready to cook the frozen vegan ravioli, just add them directly to boiling water for about 3-4 minutes or until they start floating.

If you have any leftover filling, it will stay good in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. You can use it as a spread on toast or crackers, as a dip with vegetables or chips, or even as a topping for pizza!

So don’t hesitate to make extra vegan ravioli and filling because now you know how easy it is to store and reheat them.

Tips for Perfect Results

 Nothing beats homemade pasta, especially when it's vegan.
Nothing beats homemade pasta, especially when it’s vegan.

Now that you have the recipe and ingredients all set, here are some tips that will help you achieve a perfect vegan ravioli dish.

1. Knead and Roll the Dough Just Right: When making the vegan ravioli dough, it is essential to knead and roll it just right. The texture of the dough plays a key role in determining how the final product would look and taste like. You may want to add more water in small increments or dust some flour if needed to get the right consistency of the dough. Make sure your ravioli isn’t too thick, or else it would be doughy.

2. Don’t Overfill: Resist the urge to overfill your vegan ravioli once you’re putting together each piece. It’s tempting to put in as much filling as possible so that each ravioli has more bite, but that can be a trap. Overfilling forces the edges of the wrapper to pop open, and instead of sticking together, your filling ends up floating around in the pot.

3. Seal The Edges Properly: The most challenging part of making any kind of homemade ravioli is closing it up without having too much air inside. Gently pressing down on the edges with your fingers and locking them together ensures that the filling stays securely inside while boiling or baking.

4. Cook in Small Batches: Boil your vegan ravioli in small batches for even heating and serving ease. Once they rise to the surface, allow them to cook for another one minute in boiling water before removing them with a slotted spoon.

5. Use A Good Quality Tomato Sauce: Pairing vegan ravioli with great tomato sauce enriches its flavor while augmenting every bite with just more than enough tartness and sweetness. You can make homemade tomato sauce or use ones found at stores, provided they are dairy-free.

6. Experiment With Different Fillings: Ravioli’s unique attribute is being able to hold almost any filling imaginably possible – try experimenting to know which works best for you; mushroom fillings, spinach and tofu ricotta, butternut squash or even sweet potato.

With these tips followed accordingly and careful consideration on each detail provided in our recipe article, you are guaranteed an amazing homemade vegan ravioli plate!

  • 1/2 lb fresh spinach, finely chopped
  • 5 ounces mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 bunch chives, chopped finely (or scallions finely chopped OR purple onion finely chopped and sauted to mellow)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, milled

  • Mill sunflower seeds into meal consistency then set aside.
  • Drain sundried tomatoes and finely chop
  • Blend chopped tofu, lemon juice, sea salt, nutritional yeast until ricotta like consistency. It is best not to use a blender for this or you get tofu paste. Add chopped tomatoes, red peppers, and chives. Blend by hand until well mixed. In a small bowl combine tofu mixture with remaining ingredients and mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Place 1 Tbsp of mixture in center of wonton wrapper (or other vegan ravioli dough rolled out). Wet, crimp and seal edges of wrapper SECURELY or the wrapper will open in the pan and contents will spill out. Spray the bottom of a steamer with a bit of oil. Steam a few at a time making sure to not crowd pan or they will stick to each other and be glue-ey. Spritz with oil after cooking and keep warm on a covered dish while the remainder cook. Toss with a bit more olive oil when all are cooked and sprinkle with a little fresh parsley. Serve topped with favorite vegan sauce and vegan parmesan cheese if desired. (NOTE: We have also deep fried these and had them with a vegan cheese sauce out of the "Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook" as well as a plum type sauce and they were good but more like a rangoon than a ravioli).
