Raw Beetroot Ravioli with Cashew Cheese

Ingredients

  • 1 beetroot
  • Cucumber (or just use another beetroot)
  • 200g cashew nuts
  • Fresh thyme
  • Juice 1 lime
  • 1 spring onion
  • 1 tbsp white wine
  • 4 tbsp water

Instructions

  1. Soak the cashews with a handful of thyme for 2-4 hours.
  2. Drain and blend along with the lime juice, spring onion, wine, water and about 1/2 tsp thyme leaves.
  3. Add more thyme to taste and salt and pepper if you wish.
  4. Cut the beetroot and cucumber very thinly on a mandolin. Place a spoonful of the cheese on the beetroot slice and fold over. Repeat as many tones as you wish. I garnished mine with thyme, dill, spring onion, capers, balsamic reduction and matcha foam.
  5. It is possible to cut the beetroot by hand but you do need pretty impressive knife skills! Mine were only impressive enough for about 4 slices!
