Spinach Ravioli – Easy Vegetarian Meal
Spinach Ravioli made the easy way, ready in about 30 minutes. The dough is a simple but flavorful filling with spinach and mushrooms wrapped up in pre-made wonton wrappers.
Spinach can be swapped for your favorite tender green, like chard or baby kale. Dark leafy greens are such an important part of a healthy diet. They are high in important nutrients, including fiber, folate, vitamin C and K, and iron and calcium, while low in calories and carbohydrates.
You can use canned, fresh, or rehydrated dried mushrooms. Porcini, white button. Portobello, cremini, all would be delicious in this. Mushrooms are high in protein and fiber. In this recipe, they provide umami, a “savory” taste, and a nice texture to the soft filling.
