Liquid Butternut Squash Ravioli with White Truffle

  • Servings: 6


  • 1 large butternut squash, peeled and cut into 2-inch cubes
  • 1/4 pound freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 8 sheets gelatin
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 package wonton wrappers
  • 1 white truffle, shaved, for garnish
  • Fresh chives, snipped, for garnish


  1. Feed squash through an electric juicer. Pour juice through a fine sieve into a small bowl; discard solids. You will need 2 cups juice.

  2. Fill a medium bowl with 4 cups cold water; submerge gelatin sheets and let stand until softened, about 5 minutes.

  3. In a medium saucepan, combine juice, Parmesan, and butter. Squeeze excess water from softened gelatin sheets; add to saucepan, whisking to incorporate. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Pour mixture into a 12 1/4-by-9-inch rimmed baking sheet; transfer to a refrigerator. Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours.

  5. Just before serving, bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat; add wonton wrappers for 10 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, remove wrappers, and lay each flat on work surface.

  6. Remove baking sheet from refrigerator; cut gelatin into 1/2-inch cubes. Place a cube on top of a wrapper, folding like an envelope to enclose; repeat with remaining wrappers. Transfer ravioli to a large microwave-safe dish; place dish in microwave on high until gelatin melts, about 5 seconds.

  7. For each serving, place a ravioli in each of four large soup spoons; top with truffles, and garnish with chives. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
