For the Christmas Mince Pie Filling
  • 50ml apple juice
  • 50g soft brown sugar
  • 25ml orange juice
  • 1 orange, zest only
  • 50g raisins
  • 50g sultanas
  • 50g mixed peel
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
For the pasta
  • 100g semolina
  • 100g plain white flour
  • 10g cocoa powder
  • 10g sugar
  • 100ml water
For the chocolate sauce
  • 25g coconut oil
  • 50g non-dairy milk
  • 50g maple syrup
  • 30g cocoa powder
For the raspberry coulis
  • 150g raspberries
  • 25g icing sugar
To garnish
  • 1 tbsp pistachios, chopped


  1. To make the mince pie filling: Add all the ingredients to a pan and cook over a low heat until the mixture is syrupy and the fruits have soaked up the liquid. Set aside to cool.
  2. For the pasta: Put the semolina, flour, cocoa and sugar in a food processor and pulse to mix. Continue to pulse, adding water a little at a time, until the mixture resembles loose breadcrumbs.
  3. Tip the ‘breadcrumbs’ onto a worktop and finish bringing the dough together by hand. Flatten the dough slightly, wrap in cling film and rest in the fridge for an hour.
  4. To make the ravioli: Once rested, roll out the pasta dough on a floured surface until roughly the thickness of a penny. Cut into 16 even squares.
  5. Place a little of the filling onto the middle of a pasta square, and place another piece on top. Press around the filling with the side of your thumbs to create a seal, ensuring no air is trapped. Trim the pasta with a knife if it has lost its square shape. Repeat until you have 8 ravioli.
  6. For the chocolate sauce: Add the coconut oil, non-dairy milk and maple syrup to a small pan and bring to a simmer over a medium heat while whisking. Reduce the heat to low and gradually whisk in the cocoa. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  7. To make the coulis: Simply blend the raspberries and sugar in a food processor and pass through a sieve to remove the raspberry pips. Set aside.
  8. To cook the ravioli: Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and cook the ravioli in it for 4 minutes. You may need to do this in batches so as not to overcrowd the pan. Drain.
  9. Serve two ravioli per person, drizzled with the sauces and sprinkled with chopped pistachios.
