Kite Hill Ravioli

by Anne Paddock

Kite Hill – a California-based brand owned by Lyrical Foods, Inc. – has done what no other company has been able to do:  make a truly delicious homemade ravioli with all the attributes we relish: the rich flavor of “cheese” and fillings enveloped in homemade pasta – but without the dairy products. Using artisanal almond milk products (that have been cultured just like dairy milk products) along with simple fresh ingredients, Kite Hill applies traditional methods to make one of America’s favorite comfort foods plant-based.

Two types of ravioli are made by Kite Hill:

Mushroom Ricotta Ravioli:  Portobello and Shitake mushrooms blended with a ricotta cheese made from creamy almond milk and live cultures, seasoned with breadcrumbs, a canola/olive oil blend, Marsala wine, salt, and black pepper before being wrapped in an egg-free pasta made from durum wheat, water, and beta carotene.Kite_Hill_Mushroom_and_Ricotta_Ravioli

Spinach Ricotta Ravioli: Sautéed spinach blended with almond milk based ricotta cheese, seasoned with breadcrumbs, garlic, salt, and black pepper all come together to be wrapped in a pasta made from durum flour, water, and beta-carotene.Kite_Hill_Ravioli_Spinach_and_Ricotta

The company describes these ravioli as “one-of-a-kind” and they truly are. Packaged in 9 ounce containers (with about 10 ravioli in each package which makes about 2 servings), Kite Hill ravioli sells for about $7.99 at Whole Foods Markets (look in the refrigerated cheese section where non-dairy cheeses are sold). Simply bring a pot of water to a boil, add the ravioli and cook 4-6 minutes (I cook for 6 minutes). The ravioli will puff up. Drain and serve immediately with your favorite sauce. Top with fresh chopped parsley and serve.Kite_Hill_Spinach_and_Ricotta_Ravioli

You shouldn’t have to choose between good taste and good ethics. Kite Hill makes it easy — and delicious — to reduce your environmental impact. No matter how you slice it, plant-based diets are kind to the earth and kind to animals.
