Vegan Fried Ravioli
Today, I’m giving a vegan take on a popular appetizer: vegan fried ravioli! Instead of frying the ravioli in oil, today’s vegan fried ravioli recipe is produced in an air fryer. They’re rich without being a greasy, weighty mess, thanks to a light mist of cooking spray. It’s also called breaded ravioli or toasted ravioli and cooked until crispy and dippable.
Where Can Vegan Ravioli Be Found? Because it’s made using store-bought pasta, making fried ravioli in the air fryer couldn’t be easier. Kite Hill and Rising Moon Organics are two vegan options available on the market.
Start by dipping the ravioli in aquafaba to make fried ravioli in the air fryer.
What Exactly Is Aquafaba?
Bean cooking liquid is known as aquafaba. It’s the thick liquid found in canned chickpeas, for instance. The cooking liquid from homemade beans works just as well if you make your own beans from scratch. Aquafaba not only helps the bread crumbs firmly adhere to the ravioli, but it also helps them toast to a golden brown color.
Aquafaba As a Substitute
I experimented with various flour and dipping alternatives while testing this recipe. The most satisfying results came from an aquafaba dip with a covering of seasoned panko. But don’t worry if you don’t have any aquafaba on hand.
Instead, coat the ravioli in an eggless mayonnaise-like Vegenaise and then in bread crumbs, being sure to remove any excess mayonnaise. Alternatively, you can coat them in seasoned bread crumbs after dipping them in non-dairy milk mixed with a small teaspoon of cornstarch.
Don’t Forget The Panko!
Panko bread crumbs are essential for this dish. Don’t use regular bread crumbs, as they won’t provide the same crackling effect. The noodles have a crisp crust thanks to the panko. The end effect of this fried ravioli is rather impressive. Oregano, basil, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, and garlic powder are among the spices used in the breading.
The crunch comes from the mix of air fryer magic and panko’s inherent crispiness. It’s ideal for dipping into your favorite marinara sauce. This recipe is perfect for a party appetizer. You can also slather it in sauce and eat it for lunch or dinner.
