Moroccan-Spiced Carrot Ravioli

March 1, 2011

Author Notes: I love the bright color and versatility of a carrot, and I knew I wanted to let it shine in the dish. Not to be draped by too many other vegetables or flavors, so I decided to make a carrot ravioli with a Moroccan twist. However, making ravioli on a weeknight was just too much for me so I decided to make the ravioli out of won ton wrappers. It is such a simple technique and you end up with a light weeknight dinner. Serve with a green side like wilted spinach or delicious salad and you a complete vegetarian dinner.

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 packet WonTon Wrappers
  • 4-5 Carrots, Peeled and Diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Lemon: 1 T Zest and 1/2 tsp. Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Coriander
  • 1 tablespoon Panko
  • 1 T and 1/2 Tsp. Olive Oil
  • Chopped Fresh Parsley (garnish)
In This Recipe

Directions

  1. Melt the unsalted butter in a saucepan over medium heat, once the butter begins to melt add the brown sugar. Toss in the diced carrots. Cook for 8 - 10 minutes until they begin to slightly caramelize. Add to food processor once cooked.
  2. In the food processor with the carrots, add the lemon juice, cumin, coriander, teaspoon of olive oil and panko. Pulse until a paste is formed.
  3. Bring a pot of water to boil. As the pot is beginning to boil, prepare the won ton wrapper ravioli. Place 1/2 T of the carrot paste in the center of one won ton wrapper. Wet your fingers with water and trace the border of that wrapper. Place another won ton wrapper on the top. Seal by running your finger around the border of the wrappers. Use bottom of the fork to form ravioli ridges if desired.
  4. Add completed ravioli packets to boiling water. When the ravioli rises to the top it is finished, this usually takes no more than 1-2 minutes per ravioli. Place in pasta bowl to serve. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with fresh parsley and top with lemon zest.

Love carrots but have to be gluten-free. So I am going to make it as a side to serve with something appropriate. And will probably add some of the suggestions as well. I have lemons and sumac!

Just made this! Thank you, Table 9, it was delicious and supremely easy. I made some changes (isn't that how all comments go?) such as adding diced onion to the caramelizing carrots, and, since I didn't have a lemon, adding some apple cider vinegar and some sumac powder to the mix. Yes, I don't have lemons, but I do have sumac. It's a weird kitchen. Also, threw in a pinch of cinnamon. Ultimately, very tasty! Though I must note that, after cooking, the filling viewed through the thin layer of dumpling wrapper took on a decidedly puce colouring...not terribly appetizing-looking, but delectable nonetheless. I will note, it could have been my carrots, which were ruddy-coloured to begin with.

Ooooooh! I usually find wonton wrappers in the produce area, CS.

I've been looking in all the wrong places, that's for sure. Table9 emailed me to look in produce too. No wonder I haven't been finding them. I thought they'd be where filo was...

Love this, Table9!! I've been looking for wonton wrappers without success. Are they in the frozen foods?

What a great recipe! The caramelized carrots are so sweet - they are a great higher carb potato/squash replacement. I drizzles some sesame oil on top and served on a bed of steamed spinach. On my 'favorites' list!

That sounds amazing! The first time I made this recipe, I served it on a bed of wilted spinach with toasted pine nuts topper. So similar to yours...great minds think alike.

Thanks aargersi! Won ton wrappers are so great. You can stuff them with just about anything, I love to use butternut squash and sweet potatoes in them too. See a color theme...carrot, butternut squash, sweet potatoes.ha. Really excited to hear what you come up with!
