Gluten Free Raviolis!.....Rice Paper Mushroom Raviolis with Vegan Brown Butter Sage Sauce!

Here's another gluten free, vegan goodie for all of y'all.  I usually stay away from big carbs, so I really enjoyed this recipe.  Replacing the pasta raviolis with rice paper wrappers made this dish light and yummy!  And, it really brought out the fillings, which sometimes hide behind the pasta and sauce.

It was fun to play around with the rice paper wrappers again!  I always new there could be multiple ways to use these little guys.  One thing to be careful with is that when they are in boiling water, they may start to disintegrate .  This is why I used a slated spoon for the raviolis and just hovered them over the boiling water, and dropping them in just for 10 seconds or so.

Rice Paper Mushroom Raviolis with Vegan Brown Butter Sage Sauce

This sauce is made with vegan butter (I used Earth Balance).  I just used a little to keep this dish on the healthy side.  The sage is so beautiful and fragrant.  Your kitchen will be aromatic in no time!

for the raviolis
rice paper wrappers
wild mushrooms of your choice (chopped)
1 garlic clove chopped
1/4 yellow onion chopped
1 tbsp vegan cream
2 tbsp dry white wine
for the sauce
1.5 tbsp vegan butter
fresh sage leaves
lemon juice

In a saute pan, saute garlic and onion in evoo.  After about 2 minutes, add in your mushrooms and saute for an additional 5 minutes.  Add in white wine and simmer until the wine has burned off.  Set aside.
With your rice paper wrappers, cut into squares by just cutting the circular parts off.  Doing one ravioli at a time, soak paper in warm water until soft (about 10 seconds), remove and place on surface.  In the center of the wrapper, spoon in about 1 tbsp of your mushroom filling.  Fold your raviolis to form a pouch.  Repeat until your filling is gone.
Boil a pot of water drop raviolis in for just 10-20 seconds and then steam with a slotted spoon.  Make sure you carefully watch to make sure they do not break.
Transfer to plate and pour vegan brown butter sauce sauce over.

  1. Very clear instructions. It would be great if English-speaking people understand that RAVIOLI is the plural of RAVIOL... There isn't such a thing as "raviolis"!!
