I LOVE lasagne – much like Garfield, I love it!
However this version is 100% plant based, raw and delicious – full of goodness, and because it has not been cooked nutrients and enzymes have not been destroyed. It is so healthy you feel satisfied and totally energized after eating it – AND no greasy pans to wash afterwards!
You know when you eat lasagne all you want to do afterwards is get the dishwasher started and head for the couch – heavy and tired. After eating this version you want to go and play soccer with the kids in the garden 🙂 or go for an evening run. You can really feel the difference! This has now become our favorite and we love it so much we actually prefer it over the traditional lasagne.
Now to the recipe:
The “pasta” is zucchini thinly sliced lengthwise.
The pasta sauce is made from fresh ripe tomatoes, fresh herbs and sun dried tomatoes, like this:
4 big ripe tomatoes.
6 sun dried tomatoes
A small bunch of fresh basil
1 clove of garlic
1/4 red pepper
Oregano fresh if you have it, otherwise dried
Freshly grounded pepper
Add it all to the blender and blend well. This sauce is so fresh and tasty that it beats any cooked tomato sauce!
Soak 1 cup of raw natural cashew nuts in water for at least a couple of hours
Drain and blend it smoothe with
3/4 cup filtered water
2 table spoons of olive oil
1 table spoon nutritional yeast
1 clove of garlic
Marinate brown mushrooms with a couple of tablespoons Braggs and a dash of olive oil.
On top of the sliced zucchini add some fresh spinach
and tomato sauce and “cheese” sauce like this
On top of this you add some more slices of “pasta” zucchini a bit more spinach and slices of avocado. Finish the dish of with “cheese” sauce and tomato sauce.
Looks delicious! Gorgeous pics too!

Thank you Debbie!!
This looks amazing! So yummy. But what is Braggs?
Thank you Christina! Great question, Braggs is like a healthy soy sauce, it is a great seasoning for many dishes – http://bragg.com/products/bragg-liquid-aminos-soy-alternative.html
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
Do you know of an alternative I can get in Denmark? 🙂
Hi Christina, I think you should be able to find Braggs or Nama Shoyu in health food stores. Or I found this link http://www.highonlife.dk/shop/produkt-detaljer.aspx?sku=3021#
You could use Tamari instead – quite sure you will be able to get that in most grocery stores.
Held og lykke 🙂
