Carefully remove the serum and, with a colander, filter the flakes and place them in a mould. Let it sit in the fridge for 1 hour.
  3. Afterwards, level the pasta and create a 3mm layer, then cut it into rectangles. Place them on a baking tray and create some holes with a fork, then bake at 180°C for 15 minutes.
    Peel the carrot and thinly slice it, then quickly sauté it with a tablespoon of olive oil. The carrots must still be crunchy.
  4. In the meantime, combine the plant based ricotta and the soy cream. With a pastry bag, create a layer of ricotta cheese on top of one of the dough sheets, add the carrots and cover with another sheet of dough, then add some more ricotta and more carrots on top.
    Serve as immediately as possible, so that the dough does not become too humid. Decorate with herbs.
