Squash Ravioli

Number of Servings: 8 (95 G)
Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Cook Time: 5 Minutes

Roasted squash makes a thicker and more flavorful puree, so do yourself a favor and roast the squash in the skin instead of boiling. Just halve or quarter the squash, remove the seeds, place flesh side down on a lightly oiled sheet pan and bake at 375 degrees until you can pierce through with a knife with no resistance. Scoop out the flesh and mash with a fork or puree until smooth with a mixer.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup squash or pumpkin puree (canned is perfectly fine here!)
  • 1/2 cup low fat ricotta cheese
  • 4T grated parmesan
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 t. orange zest
  • dash ginger
  • dash nutmeg
  • dash cloves
  • dash black pepper
  • One package wonton skins

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the filling ingredients and stir well to combine. To assemble, drop one teaspoon of filling onto the center of a wonton skin. Lightly spray the wonton with water (or use your finger dipped in water to moisten the dough) and drape another wonton skin over the filling, aligning the edges. Working from the filling out, press the two skins together with your fingertips, trying to push any air bubbles away from the filling. Press the two skins together to seal. If desired, trim the edges using a ravioli wheel or press or, if you’re like me, a pair of dollar store pinking shears.
  2.  Drop ravioli into a large pot of water at a full boil. Don’t crowd them as they’ll stick together; rather, make sure there’s plenty of space for them to move about as they boil. Cook for 4-5 minutes. Remove from the water with a slotted spoon and serve immediately with your favorite sauce.

The B12 Question

Vegan Cheesy Chips

For all the benefits of the plant-based diet, and especially for those on a vegetarian diet, there is still one very important consideration, which is the lack of B12. Our bodies can’t produce B12, the essential, water-vitamin found mostly in meat and dairy foods, and therefore we must seek it in our diet. For those on a plant-only diet, there are many fortified foods and supplements available to help them meet their B12 needs. This raises the question as to how easy it is to become deficient in B12 and whether supplements and fortified foods are an adequate replacement.
