Nothing like a warm and comforting bowl of home made tortellini with a creamy tomato sauce.

Recipe

Prep Time: 1 hr 15 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Yields: 2-4

Ingredients

  • For the Tortellini Dough:
  • 400 grams all purpose flour + more for dusting
  • 150 ml warm water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • For the Filling:
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, cooked
  • handful fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • For the Creamy Tomato Sauce:
  • 1 cup tomato puree or diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup cashews, soaked in hot water for 15 minutes
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free grated cheese
  • handful fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4-1/2 cup soy milk

Method

  1. Make the dough. In a large bowl, add flour and salt, mix together. Add about half of the water. Working from the outside of the bowl towards the center, adding small amounts of the remaining water as you go. You will end up with a lovely dough ball after about 10 minutes of mixing and kneading. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour.
  2. Make the filling. In a bowl mash sweet potatoes using a potato masher. Add in parsley, oregano, season to taste and mix until combined. Set aside.
  3. Make the sauce. Drain cashews and place in a blender with all the other ingredients except soy milk. Process until creamy and smooth. Heat butter in a pan over medium heat, add the tomato mixture. Cook for 1 minute, then start adding milk, constantly stirring, until the desired thickness is reached. Set aside.
  4. On a slightly floured surface roll the dough out until it's about 0.5 cm thick. Using a small, circular cookie cutter, cut out rounds. Place about 1/4 teaspoon filling in the middle of each round. Fold the dough in half over the filling and seal tightly. Bring the 2 ends together and seal a little bit more and fold up the edge. Bring a large pan with water to a boil. Boil tortellini for 3-5 minutes until they float to the surface. Serve tortellini warm with creamy tomato sauce and enjoy immediately.
