Recipe Directions

1. Slice the zucchini thin (this will be your noodles) and put it aside in a soak of warm salt water.
2. Throw your cashews, the juice of the half lemon, a dash of pepper, a dash of sea salt, and a sprinkle of basil in a food processor. Pulse a few times, while slowly adding a few spoonfuls of water, until it’s about the consistency of ricotta cheese. Taste it, and add more salt/pepper/basil to your taste.
3. In a small bowl, whisk with a fork the sesame oil, nama shoyu, and a generous squirt of agave nectar. Add the mushrooms, and toss to coat.
4. To layer the lasagna, lay some zucchini flat on a plate, spread on some of the nut cheese, and then a layer of mushrooms. I made two servings with this recipe, each had three layers.
5. Eat!

Minibeast's Thoughts

I fashioned this after a wild mushroom lasagna with white sauce that I saw on Barefoot Contessa… it didn’t wind up tasting especially like lasagna, but it did wind up tasting very good!

I made this for lunch today. It was one of the best recipes yet! I used chanterelle mushrooms and poured the leftover marinade right over the top. So amazing! Thank you.

I agree, not especially lasagna-tasting but it had very interesting flavors and I liked it a lot! The marinade was so yummy I couldn't let the remainder to go waste--I threw some kale and raisins in the bowl put it to good use! Thank you!

I just made this and it was tasting very good!
For the 'ricotta' I used almonds and pumpkin seeds and added a little honey to sweeten the lemon taste a bit.
And my mushroom marinade was made of olive oil, garlic, ginger, pepper, salt and honey.
very delicious, I wasn't aware raw mushrooms could taste like this.
I'll make it again, probably another variety...

I made this last night for dinner, it was surprising filling. It was amazing, I especially loved how the mushrooms and the "cheese" tasted. In fact it was so good that for lunch today I made the same recipe, except I put a zucchini through my vegetable spiralizer and ate it as zegetti instead. Love it!

This was really great tasting. After eating it the first time though we decided to leave the seed cheese out and eat with the other ingredients. It was really good that way also.

Sure :o) Cashews blend best with water, I think, and get very creamy, so I like them best when I'm trying to imitate dairy. You might try sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds, though. Play around!

This looks great... would it work with any other nuts than cashews?

Oh yum! I've been toying going raw for a while and tried many recipes. This one is great! I soaked some dulce and added it to the "cheese" to make it saltier which worked great for me.

I made this last night and it was great! At points through it was a little to sweet for me. I think the fake cheese is what it is. So I think I might use ease off on half a lemon or so.

This sounds great! I can't eat many tomatoes, so this version of lasagna is very appealing to me. It would look beautiful layered in a timbale mould too with spinach instead of zuchinni. I'm going to make this for an upcoming dinner with friends. Allison
