Caramelised Onion Tortellini

No need to miss out on tortellini anymore, I have an amazing hack for you! I learned this at a food demonstration but sadly they were using salmon. The hack however got me so excited that I had to try it with a vegan filling.

So what’s the secret? I’ve taken wonton sheets and stuffed them with caramelised onion vegan cheese. For the sauce I have made a simple but seriously tasty garlic and thyme infused oil.

Wondering where to buy this cheese? You can buy this in Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Whole Foods Market.

Ingredients

  • 20 Wonton Sheets – Preferably round ones or use a round cutter.
  • 80g Caramelised Onion Vegan Cheese
  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • Fresh Thyme
  • 3-4 Cloves of Garlic
  • Sprinkle of Sea Salt
  • Flour for dusting

Method

  1. Take the cheese, mould into 20 small balls and set aside.
  2. To make your first tortellini place one ball of cheese in the centre of the wonton sheet. Have a little pot with 1 tbsp of oil by the side of your workspace and use your fingertip to dab the oil all around the edge of the sheet.
  3. Fold the sheet in half to make a half moon shape and press the edges together firmly to seal the parcel.
  4. Bring the two corners around to form a bonnet-like shape and seal again. Place the tortellini on a lightly floured surface. Repeat steps 2-4 again until you have 20 tortellinis.
  5. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil, add the tortellinis to the water and boil for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Whilst the tortellinis are boiling we are going to make a very simple sauce by gently heating 2 tbsp of olive oil with finely chopped garlic and fresh thyme.
  7. When the tortellinis are done, gently toss them in the garlic and thyme oil and top with a pinch of sea salt before serving.
