I just made the most delicous creamy cheesy cauliflower soup.  In fact it is so delicious it inspired me to blog the recipe.  

The Ingredients

1 medium head of cauliflower cut into bite size pieces 
1/2c shredded carrots
32oz of vegetable broth
1 cup of cashews soaked overnight and drained
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1-2T Celtic sea salt(to taste)
1T lemon juice
1t pepper
cups water 

Directions
Place cauliflower, carrots and vegetable broth in saucepan and boil for 15-20 minutes.  While that is going on add the rest for the ingredients to your Vitamix and blend on high for approximately 5 minutes.  Once the cauliflower has boiled enough to soften stir in the cashew cream mixture and mix well.  Simmer for about 30 minutes.  

Enjoy and always Make It With Love.

Raw Lasagna



I don't make this often but when I do I throughly enjoy it.  It can be served warm by placing it in the dehydration for 1 hour at 145 degrees.  It tastes just a delicous without going in the dehydrator. 
Here's the recipe. 

4 medium sized zucchini sliced longways using a mandolin on the medium setting. (Set aside)

TOMATO SAUCE
1c sundried tomatoes soaked for about 15 minutes 
1c Roma tomatoes chopped and seeded(3 tomatoes)
1/3c water from soaked sundried tomatoes 
1 clove garlic
1/2t Celtic sea salt
1/4t dried oregano 
1/4t dried basil 
1/4t Italian seasoning
1T agave
Dash of red pepper flakes
Place in Vitamix and blend til desired consistency.  I like mine pretty smooth. 

CASHEW CHEESE
1c cashews soaked
1/2c water
3T nutritional yeast
2T lemon juice
1t sea salt
1/4t garlic
Place all ingredients in Vitamix and blend til smooth. 

PESTO
2c basil leaves packed
1/2c pine nuts
1/3c olive oil
2 cloves garlic
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2t Celtic sea salt
In a food processor add Garlic-pulse
Add Basil and pine nuts-pulse
Add olive oil  and lemon juice pulse until all is well combined

CASHEW PARMESAN
1/3c cashews 
1/4c nutritional yeast
1/2t Celtic sea salt
1/4t garlic powder
Using a coffee grinder or blender. (I use my nutribullet) Blend all ingredients until resembles Parmesan cheese. 

Now for the layers...using a casserole dish layer the bottom of the dish with he zucchini noodles covering the bottom of the dish overlapping the noodles.  Place tomato sauce over the noodles. Then the cashew cheese. The cashew cheese doesn't have to cover the tomato sauce completely. It will spread out. Then dollop the pesto on top of the cashew cheese then start layering again in the same order.  I usually get about three layers ending with the zucchini noodles. Then top with the cashew parmesan. 
That's it. Enjoy and remember to Make it With Love
