HEALTHY AF LASAGNA



this lasagna will change your life. it has a lot of steps, but
they're all easy and worth it.

step 1: soak ~8oz. raw cashews for at least 4 hours

step 2: make a tomato sauce [or buy a really really good one. Rao's is the only brand i'd consider]

 step 3: sauté up some kale + spinach with olive oil, salt, pepper,
garlic powder, and some nutritional yeast

step 4: slice 1 eggplant, 1 yellow zucchini, and 1 green zucchini =
length-wise so they look like long lasagna noodles. i'd say my =
slices were 1/4" thick

step 5: make cashew "ricotta". here's how:

ingredients:
-your soaked cashews from earlier
-2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
-1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
-1 tsp onion powder
-2 cloves garlic
-1 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
-2 tbsp - 1/4 cup water

directions:

add all ingredients to a food processor. i loveeeee my ninja
express. it's cheap, so effective, and easy to clean.

keep scraping down sides of food processor/adding splashes of water
until the consistency looks like ricotta. feel free to add more
salt/pepper.

now layer your lasagna:
1. tomato sauce
2. eggplant slices
3. tomato sauce & cashew ricotta (spread evenly on eggplant)
2. yellow zucchini
3. tomato sauce & cashew ricotta (spread evenly)
4. cooked greens
5. green zucchini
6. tomato sauce & cashew ricotta (spread evenly)
7. eggplant
8. rest of sauce and cashew ricotta

bake at 350º for 1 hour
top with fresh EVOO and basil
EAT
