This recipe is easy, quick and delicious and you will fool your non-vegan friends everytime!
1 package vegan ravioli (I use soyboy)
½ cup water
½ cup plain breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Pinch salt and freshly ground pepper
Canola oil or safflower oil for frying
Vegan parmesan cheese (optional)
Defrost one package of vegan ravioli on a parchment lined paper in the fridge overnight. When the ravioli are defrosted take them out of the fridge and set aside.
In a small bowl combine breadcrumbs and herbs with a pinch of salt and pepper and stir until mixed well. In a small saucepan add enough oil to fry ravioli and so they have enough room to move around. Bring oil filled saucepan up to a medium high heat and when oil is ready for frying begin by dipping each ravioli in water first and then breadcrumb mixture, coating them well. One at a time, add ravioli into pan. Do not add more than 3 or 4 at a time as this will bring the oil temperature down and it will take longer to fry. After about 2 minutes turn ravioli over to cook other side. Each side should get about 2 minutes of frying time, or until golden brown. When they are finished frying removed with a mesh strainer and put them on a paper towel lined plate to remove excess oil. Sprinkle with soy parmesan cheese and salt.
Serve with warmed tomato sauce.
