Pea and Edamame Ravioli with Toasted Walnuts and Ricotta

Image

 

Pea and Edamame Filling

1 16oz. package frozen peas
1 12oz. package frozen, shelled edamame
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 to 2 tsp. freshly cracked pepper
freshly ground salt, to taste

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the peas and edamame for about 5 minutes. Drain, reserving some of the cooking water. Transfer to a food processor, and puree, adding water if needed to reach a creamy consistency.

Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a small skillet and cook the garlic until lightly browned and tender. Fold into pureed peas along with the lemon, pepper, salt

this is what the pea and edamame mixture will look like when done

Now to make the Ravioli

Pea & Edamame filling
wonton wrappers
ricotta cheese, drained for a few hours
butter, about 1 tablespoon per serving
chicken broth, about 1/2 cup per serving
walnuts, lightly toasted

here I have the ricotta draining in the strainer. My strainer wasn’t as fine sieve as I wanted so I put down a few coffee filters (you could also use cheese cloth if you have it handy, which I didn’t)

if you’re not going to use all of the raviolis right away, lay them flat on a sheet pan and freeze them. Once they’re frozen you can put them in a container and pull them out of the freezer as needed!

Directions

Prepare the raviolis by putting a small amount of the pea and edamame filling onto each wonton wrapper. Wet the edges and press together into a triangle. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Place a sheet of foil on a baking sheet and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Transfer the ricotta the baking sheet, spreading it out. Spray with olive oil spray and sprinkle on a little bit of salt and pepper, to taste. Bake for about 15 minutes, until lightly browned, and set aside.

Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to a boil, and heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the ravioli until tender, about 5 minutes. Let the butter brown slightly (DON’T BURN IT!) Add the chicken broth, bring to a boil and simmer for a few minutes. Remove the ravioli from the water and add to skillet with the browned butter sauce; stir and saute briefly.

Serve ravioli with crumbled ricotta cheese over and toasted walnuts.

Miso Soup with Sweet Potato Dumplings

INGREDIENTS

1 pound sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 shallot, chopped
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional, if you like a little heat)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 cups Bok Choy, chopped
1 cup bean sprouts
1 cup shelled Edamame
12 wonton wrappers
3 tablespoons white miso, plus more to taste
2 stalks green onion, thinly sliced

PREPARATION

  1. Heat oven to 375˚. Prick holes in potatoes. Bake on a baking sheet until soft, turning once, about 1 hour. Cool, then peel and mash. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook garlic and shallot, stirring, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add pepper flakes. Stir garlic mixture, salt and pepper into potatoes. Place Bok Choy, sprouts and Edamame in a pot with 2 cups water and set aside. Lay 1 wonton wrapper in palm of hand. Drop a heaping tbsp of potato mixture in the center and make a fist to gather edges. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling. Set dumplings on top of vegetables in pot. Bring to a boil. Cook, covered, until wrappers are translucent, 3 to 6 minutes. Divide veggies and dumplings among 4 bowls. Add 4 cups water to pot. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Add miso, stirring until it dissolves. Divide among bowls; top with green onion.
