Easy & Vegan Ricotta Tortellini

https://youtu.be/QJYJGONvM3w

My boyfriend is OBSESSED with Tortellini. His friends and I tease him that he can make tortellini and minestrone and those are his two dishes.

He is so obsessed that when I went vegan I knew I had to perfect the vegan tortellini. We couldn’t go forever without tortellini! I also knew that he was going to be the most honest critic so I am so pumped that we came up with this super light Almond Ricotta Vegan Tortellini

The tortellini is self can be made very easy! It is just 5 simple ingredients for the pasta!

Ingredients

1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 cup semolina flour
3/4 cup water
1 tsp salt
2 tsp olive oil

You can really fill this tortellini pasta with what ever filling you want but I love my almond ricotta filling, which you can find on my Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/CPYuOn3FIJB/

You can also use any sauce you want but I do LOVE this red pepper sauce

Sauce Ingredients

12.5 oz roasted red peppers
1 cup coconut milk (full fact)
3 garlic cloves
1 cup beef broth

Directions

  1. Make Your Pasta
    1. In a bowl or stand mixer combine flours, salt, oil and water to make a dough. Knead it for 10 minutes then allow it to rest.
    2. Next, you want to roll the dough out into a long sheet. I like my tortellini dough to be very thin so on my stand mixer I roll it to a level 4.
    3. Cut out your tortellini shapes! They can be a square or a circle.
  2. Fill Your Pasta
    1. You can literally make ANY filling that you would like but if you want to make my almond ricotta tortellini you can find my filling here.
  3. Fold Your Tortellini
    1. I put half a tsp of filling in each circle then folded the pasta in half sealing the edges. Next, you pinch the corners together – it is hard to explain so watch the youtube video 😉🤣
  4. Make the Sauce
    1. This red pepper sauce couldn’t be any easier! Throw everything into a blender and blend until smooth. I like to then put the sauce on the stove to bubble and thicken!
    2. If you want a creamier sauce you can always use my tofu alfredo sauce which you can find here.
  5. Cook the pasta
    1. Boil some salted water and toss in your tortellini! Boil for 4 minutes until done.
  6. ENJOY
    1. Toss the tortellini in the sauce, and sprinkle with vegan mozzarella.!
