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

Almond Coconut Milk

This milk is delicious in my home made hot chocolate.  It's also creamy enough to use in your coffee and tea. 

Ingredients...
1 cup almonds soaked overnight
1 cup shredded coconut
5 cups filtered water
5 pitted dates

Place all ingredients in your high speed blender. I used a Vitamix. Blend for about a minute. Strain through a nut milk bag. Refrigerate and enjoy!

Vegan Cheddar Biscuits

Again, I must warn you that these biscuits are amazingly delicious!  Just as good as the Red Lobster Cheddar biscuits but vegan.  So, proceed with caution...

Ingredients
2 cups Biscquick
1/4 cup vegan butter(I use Earth Balance)
2/3 cup almond milk
1 cup Daiya cheddar cheese

Separate ingredients...
1/4 cup melted butter 
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Place Biscquick and butter in large bowl and cut butter into biscuit until the butter is in small lumps.  Add the milk and cheese and mix until everything is incorporated well but still kinda lumpy. Drop biscuits onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.

While biscuits are in oven melt 1/4 cup butter and garlic.  After removing biscuits from oven brush the garlic butter mixture on each biscuits.  Should make about 16 biscuits. Enjoy!

Make It With Love!!!!
Happy New Year!!!!
