1. Prepare Marinade: Combine olive oil, squeeze of lemon, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Add sliced beets and marinate for at least 1 hour to overnight.
2. Prepare Ravioli: Lay half of the sliced, marinated beets on a flat surface (these are the bottom layer of your ravioli). Using a spoon, scoop one tablespoon of the Cashew Cream Cheese in the center of each beet slice (you could also use a pastry bag). Cover the cheese with another sliced beet to complete the ravioli.
3. Prepare Asparagus Salad: Shave the asparagus into long, thin pieces using a veggie peeler. Combine the asparagus, toasted pumpkin-seed oil, squeeze of lemon, and a sprinkling of salt and pepper in a bowl, and gently toss to mix ingredients well. Do this just before serving, to ensure you keep the crispness of the veggies.
4. Serve: Place 6 to 8 ravioli on each plate. Arrange a handful of shaved and dressed Asparagus Salad on top of the ravioli. Garnish with minced chives, a drizzle of aged balsamic vinegar, cracked pepper, and a pinch of sea salt if using.
