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.
Caramelised Onion Tortellini
Nutrition – Not your every day meal, the perfect treat.
Calories: 460 Carbs: 37g Fat: 32g Protein: 5.7g
- 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
- Take the cheese, mould into 20 small balls and set aside.
- 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.
- Fold the sheet in half to make a half moon shape and press the edges together firmly to seal the parcel.
- 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.
- Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil, add the tortellinis to the water and boil for 3-4 minutes.
- 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.
- When the tortellinis are done, gently toss them in the garlic and thyme oil and top with a pinch of sea salt before serving.
