Ravioli with Tomato Sauce and Roasted Broccoli

Dinner 05/23

Ravioli with Tomato Sauce

Roasted Broccoli

It's been a while since we made ravioli -- mainly because the last time we made some they lasted for more than a year.

This time we took the same basic dough recipe (below) and filled them with a combination of TVP (texturized vegetable protein), smoked tofu (crumbled, fried and splashed with tamari), sauteed onion & garlic, salt, pepper, nutmeg, oregano and thyme.

Ravioli Dough

2 cups Einkorn flour (or AP flour)
1 tsp. salt
1 tbs. olive oil
2 tbs. vegan cream cheese
1/4 cup water (add more if needed)

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients by hand in a large mixing bowl, until a dough starts to form. Remove from the bowl and on a clean surface that's been dusted with flour, knead on countertop for 5-10 minutes. Roll the dough into a ball, wrap it in plastic, and let rest at room temp for 15 minutes.

Here what we wrote the last time:
To assemble, we used a pasta roller attachment on our KitchenAid (as shown). You start on thickness number "1" and after each pass, change the setting until you eventually roll it to a "4" using the Einkorn flour -- if using AP flour you might get to a "5" -- although with a hand cranked roller we've gone as thin as a "6" or "7" (YMMV).

To finish, we topped it with a somewhat spicy tomato sauce and roasted broccoli on the side.
