Raw Lasagne Recipe – Delicious but Healthy

imageOne of the Facebook pages I follow, the same one I’m doing the 30 day green smoothie challenge with, posts regular photos of new meals and recipes.

Their recent post of a raw lasagne looked too good not to try!

As previously mentioned. I’m rather a pasta addict, so any healthy ‘pasta’ recipe is going to grab my attention.

Well this one tasted as good as it looked! Fresh, super healthy and very palatable, this will be making a regular appearance on my menu plan.

A couple of notes:

  • I used sunflower seeds as I didn’t have hemp seeds
  • I tried using a standard vegetable peeler to slice the zucchinis, which was very fiddly, so I’m going to either have to purchase a mandolin or use the flat blade on my spirooli and have curly lasagne
  • I didn’t add enough water to the cheese sauce, so it was a bit too thick

Recipe from The Raw Food Mum

LASAGNE LAYERS
2 – 3 large zucchinis
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of olive oil

You will need a mandolin for slicing the zucchinis thinly. Place the sliced zucchini in a bowl with olive and salt and rub. Let sit whilst you make the sauce.

CHEESY SAUCE INGREDIENTS
2 cups of almonds
1 cup of hemp seeds
the juice of one lemon
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of water
a pinch of Hing or Garlic powder
2 Tablespoons of nutritional yeast.
If you don’t have hemp seeds you could use sesame seeds or sunflower seeds would be yummy too:)

Place all ingredients into a high powered blender and blend until smooth and creamy. You may need to add a little more water to get it to a creamy consistency.

LASAGNE INGREDIENTS
6 medium carrots (grated)
4 cups of spinach ( wilted with salt)
1 cup of hemp seeds
6-8 tomatoes ( or we used 2 punnets of cherry tomatoes)

METHOD
1. Using a baking dish. line the bottom with the zucchini sheets
2. Spread grated carrot evenly over zucchini
3. Spread a layer ofthe cheesy mixture over grated carrot
4. Place a layer of the wilted spinach on top of the cheesy sauce
5. Pour another layer of the cheesy sauce over the spinach and then place a layer of fresh tomatoes
6. Place another layer of sliced zucchini over the tomatoes and sprinkle with hemp seeds.
This can be eaten straight away or you can place in the fridge to set for 4-6 hours. Delish, 100% raw and full of goodness!
