Recipe Directions

1. To make the cashew cheez: -Process the soaked cashews, lemon juice, lemon zest, nutritional yeast, celtic sea salt, onion, and herbs. The measurements are just approximate, so taste as you go, it should taste yummy like ravioli cheese. It should have a ricotta-cheesey texture, so add more lemon juice or water if needed. 2. To make the zucchini layers, coat the thin and wide zucchini strips with the olive oil and salt so they are coated but NOT dripping. Set aside, and reserve any extra olive oil and salt mix you have left for the mushrooms. 3. To make the mushrooms, coat the thinly sliced portabella caps in the EVOO and nama shoyu mixture, again so they are coated but NOT dripping. 4. Coat the baby spinach VERY lightly in any of the leftover marinade from the mushrooms. 5.TIME TO ASSEMBLE!! Arrange the layers like so: zucchini (slightly overlapping), cheez, tomato slices, mushrooms, spinach, and repeat. do this so its as tall as you like, and coat the top layer of zucchini with some more cheez and tomato. 6. Dehydrate at 130 degrees for an hour (this will not destroy enzymes because of the moisture content of the food at this stage), and then at 110-115 for another half hour to an hoour or so. 7. ENJOY!!!!

Elizabethh's Thoughts

By elizabethh

I have tried a LOT of different raw lasagnas, but none of them really did it for me…I guess because I was a real cooked lasgna fan, and the raw kind didn’t satisfy my craving. I think, with this recipe, I may have cracked the raw lasagna code, and I can honestly say I like this version better than the cooked one. Don’t be intimidated by the procedure or anything, it is REALLY easy.

As soon as you said you were a real big fan of the cooked version and that this was better than the cooked version I added to my box. I can't wait to try it!

This is amazing! I actually left it in the dehydrator at 105 for a few hours to warm it up a bit more. The best lasagna recipe I've tried so far.

Fantastic!

I made this recipe above and it turned out lovely and even my husband liked it who's normally a picky eater in regards to raw food. I did use more nutritional yeast to get it to taste cheesy (maybe mine from the bulk food section wasn't the most ideal kind to use. I don't know much about this kind of yeast). Anyway it was very good and I'd make it again but triple the recipe.

I'm actually going to make the lasagna from Pure Food and Wine this weekend or soon after....

I found that when I actually made the lasagna from the Pure Food and Wine recipe it turned out better than when I got it there.

It still hits the spot without the yeast. Ate the whole recipe for dinner and felt pleasantly stuffed.

jayybee: i use a bulk brand i get at my local health food store...its just called purely bulk i think.

zhanna8: not including dehydrating or cashew soaking time, it takes about 15 minutes to put together.

cajcooke: the nutritional yeast is what gives the cheese a really cheesey taste, which makes it taste like authentic ravioli cheese. you could leave it out if you don't have it, but i don't know if it would have the token cheesey flavor so familiar to lasagna!

Why do you use the nutritional yeast? What do you think would change about it if I didn't use the yeast? Thanks,cajcookie

This sounds good. I'm with you. I've tried so many but none are quite right. Dare I say it but even the one I tried at Pure Food and Wine in NYC did not hit the spot! (altho" everything else was AMAZING. ) So Thanks!
