Eggplant Ravioli Stuffed with Macadamia Nut Ricotta, Tomato and Marinated Portobello Mushrooms, topped with Basil and Walnut Pesto
(from Renee Underkoffler's "Living Cuisine" book)
(from Juliano -- beet juice, orange juice, jalapeno, avacado, cabbage, dill, parsley, carrot, galic, galanga, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, apples)
Figs in Vanilla Cream and Orange Sabayon
(from Charlie/Roxanne -- cashew nut milk and oranges make a really nice counterpart to the ripe figs -- a nice end to the meal)
The eggplant ravioli's were fun -- I used our mandoline on the peeled eggplant and got very nice uniform slices that marinated and folded perfectly. After stuffing them, they went into the dehydrator for four hours which brought it all together.
