Rustic Beetroot Ravioli


I spotted this recipe for beetroot ravioli in the lastest SBS Feast magazine.
Their version was not so rustic...


The filling consists of roasted grated beetroot, ricotta and panko crumbs plus salt and pepper.


I made my pasta with delicious freshly milled wholewheat flour.
It definitely makes a less soft pasta but packed with flavour.


The filling is rolled up in balls.


Top with some more pasta, (yes I know interesting technique, I was having trouble so I tried a few different ways) and attempt to create your ravioli!


They were probably the dodgiest looking ravioli I have ever made, I had to patch them up everywhere....


but a miracle occurred and not one of these little babies burst!


A beautiful burnt butter sage sauce is drizzled over the top and serve.


My daughter was in awe of the beautiful pink innards, she was so excited.
Then had a mouthful....'mum I don't like it'!


Oh well you don't have to like everything but me I loved them, they tasted wholesome, like real food, and rustic!

  8. Fantastic! I'm always looking for new things to do with beetroot and I think these would be a big hit! I'm terrible at working with pasta... so I might just use my dumpling press on these! :)

  9. How cute that she got so excited about then pink inside but then didn't like them. At least she will try all of the deliciousness that you cook. I struggle with beets and my beet chips are as far as I've gone! I'm curious if I would like that ravioli!

  17. Umm, may I suggest something? Why don't you caramelize a bit of onion with a pinch of salt and sugar, add cooked and mashed beetroot in it, a big hefty pinch of freshly ground garam masala (cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, that's it!) and cook it down till the mixture is slightly dry. Add a handful of fried peanuts and stuff this in the ravioli. it will be better.
