Raw Food Recipe: Beet Ravioli Hearts


 serves 2 ~ $1.60 per serving




  • 2 beets ($1.50)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice ($.30)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil ($.20)
  • 2 tablespoons agave ($.20)
  • 1/2 cup cashews ($2.00)
  • 1/4 cup water, for blending (add more if needed)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1 clove garlic

Slice the beets very thinly. They can used as is, or stacked a few at a time and cut into heart shapes with kitchen scissors. Then, in a medium bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, and agave, until emulsified. Add the beets and toss to coat. Cover and let marinate for a few hours or even overnight in the fridge.

When the beets are softened and ready to use. blend the remaining ingredients in a bullet type blender for several minutes until creamy.

To assemble, lay one slice of beet down and place about a teaspoon of the cashew cream in the center. Top with another slice of beet and lightly press.

Finally, add a small drizzle of olive oil (optional).

    One question that I have and would like your help with is on how you get the nutritional information. Could you let me know which website you use for that?

    1. Hi Themis! You're welcome and thanks! I use everydayhealth.com the most often for nutritional information. I try to keep track what I eat and so use it fairly often ... practically daily. Sometimes, I use caloriecount.com or the nutritional label if it's a packaged product.
