Homemade Ravioli

I've had my eye on the White Bean Ravioli with Caramelized Onion Sauce from The Complete Vegan Kitchen for months now. I finally made it on Monday night:

What was the holdup, you ask? I had the hardest time finding vegan-safe wonton wrappers. Every package I picked up contained eggs, but I finally located egg-free wrappers at an Asian grocery store. They came frozen, so I bought them a few months ago. But I forgot they were in my freezer until recently. Now I'm attempting a bit of a freezer purge because I've reached the point of overflowing.

Though the picture looks a little funky, these were so tasty. I filled the wonton wrappers with a white bean paste made with garlic, onion, and herbs. They were boiled and served with a tasty sauce of caramelized onions, white wine, balsamic vinegar, and toasted walnuts. I felt pretty fancy eating these!

I have had the same trouble finding vegan wonton wrappers! What was the brand you found?

The ravioli looks delicious and the filling sounds perfect!

i can't remember the brand name, but they have vegan wonton wrappers in the frozen section at krogers. that looks really good!

Ohmigosh it looks so good! I made homemade ravioli once, and they were delish... but so time-consuming :o/

Those look heavenly! I had that problem too... Myra Kornfeld's cookbooks call for wrappers as well and they seem to arbitrarily add eggs or butter...

The white wine sauce sounds heavenly! I bet it would be really good with butternut squash filling too.

Yeah finding vegan wonton wrapers is so difficult. I have found that most asian markets have vegan wonton or dumpling wrapers

Cyn said...

YUM! Those look super delicious. I've got to try the whole ravioli-using-wonton-wrappers thing.

shelby said...

Uh! I can never find vegan wrappers, I finally had to get a recipe online...I have yet to try it though.

Chelsea said...

Holy crap, that looks amazing!

Funny that you're trying to purge your freezer, I'm trying to do the opposite! I just never think to put stuff in there, but I've been sick the last couple days and it would be really nice to have easy stuff to warm up. I've got Rice Dream, ground flax, and whiskey in there currently... :)

Kelly said...

Ohhh man, those looks incredible! And the sauce... I love caramelized onions. Mmm.

Oooh, yum!

miss v said...

looks great! i love asian groceries... i found agar agar for .99 there yesterday. now i just have to find recipes that i want to use it in!

Amey said...

oh funny you should mention it. I've never once found vegan wonton wrappers, but I see recipes with them all the time. We don't have an asian grocer nearby (maybe an hour away)... I'll try to remember to look there next time I'm out that way! So much easier than making your own dough.

The Asian store is the only place I've ever found egg-free wrappers!

Veggie said...

Wow, this sounds so good.
