Dairy-free ravioli is difficult to find and difficult to make. OK, any ravioli is difficult to make. I have a high school friend who makes ravioli with her parents every December and I drool jealously as I scroll through her Facebook photos. Surprisingly, my kids don’t think dairy-free potato and onion pierogi are an acceptable substitute for ravioli. Weird, I know. It’s also weird that I don’t feel like making homemade ravioli for dinner most nights, isn’t it? Or, let’s face it, even for Christmas. Or any other special occasion.
I am happy to announce that my ravioli-related problems have been solved with the new Tofutti Dairy-Free Cheese Ravioli – available in both jumbo and bite-size ravioli.
Because I am a fan of Better Than Cream Cheese, Tofutti Cuties, Sour Supreme, and other Tofutti products, I was very excited to try these cheesy bites. The oval-shaped Tofutti Jumbo Cheese Ravioli reminds me of the large, homemade ravioli served at my favorite Italian restaurant. To note, the square-shaped Bite-Size Cheese Ravioli are also quite generous in size. Both varieties of Tofutti Dairy-Free Cheese Ravioli are filled with Tofutti Better Than Ricotta Cheese blended with Italian seasonings.
I served the ravioli with a simple red sauce. They were enjoyed by all of my children–both dairy and nondairy eaters–and myself, and tolerated by my husband. Personally, I was impressed by how close the flavor is to cheese ravioli, if not a bit sweeter. I am thrilled that we now have two dairy-free ravioli options to keep in our freezer for an easy weeknight meal or for a special occasion.
