Crispy Ravioli stuffed with a Pea & Mint Ricotta: I put all the flavors of spring inside my ravioli. Ravioli is so fun to make especially with friends/family, & so satisfying to eat ? Bonus: If you make this and have left over ricotta filling, it’s great on toast or even on its own.What you need: Dough: 1 cup flour, 1 cup semolina flour, 1/4 cup silken tofu (firm) up to 1/2 cup warm water, 1 tbl olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/8 turmeric (optional), Filling: 2 cups frozen peas (thaw) 2 garlic cloves minced, 2 green onions finely chopped, 1 /4 cup mint leaves, 1/2 block extra firm tofu using a kitchen towel to squeeze out water the best you can/ no need to press,1 tbl nutritional yeast,1 tsp lemon zest, juice of 1/2 lemon, salt/pepper to taste
1️⃣Using a food processor combine the flour, silken tofu, salt, turmeric on high. Slowly add oil & then water, 1 tbl at a time, after a minute or so it will form a ball, and feel smooth.Wrap in plastic wrap, rest dough 1/2 hr
