Raw food is so tasty.

I’ve noticed that I don’t feel like using salt in my raw food recipes at all, because the flavors are so rich.

Don’t get me wrong, I love cooked foods as well. But it’s my experience that when food is cooked, the flavors disappear, and then you add it again with salt (and other ingredients). But with raw food, the flavors are still intact.

I developed this recipe in the supermarked, when my boyfriend and I where grocery shopping. Friday is our lasagne-day with the boys, and since my boyfriend was eating strict raw food that week, I decided to join him and make a raw lasagne for both of us.

Try the recipe! It’s delicious !

Serves 3 people

Ingredients:

2 zucchinis sliced on a mandolin iron as the lasagne sheets.

Marinara:

2kg / 4,4 Ibs regular tomatoes.

1 small handful of fresh oregano

1 bunch of basil

1 bunch of parsley

1 clove of garlic

Pesto:

0,7 oz / 20g spinach

2 bunches of fresh basil

1 clove of garlic

1,75 oz / 50g pine nuts

The juice of half a lemon

“Cheese-sauce”:

2 zucchinis

2,1 oz / 60g raw almonds (Soak at least 2 hours in cold water before use)

2,5 oz / 70g pine nuts

2 tbsp. nutritional yeast (optional)

The juice of half a lemon

How it’s done:

Marinara:

Put the tomatoes, oregano, parsley and basil in a food processor. Press the garlic into the mix. Blend the marinara until it’s fluent but still chunky. Put the marinara in a sieve, and let it drain for 15 minutes while you make the rest of the filling.

Pesto:

Put the spinach, basil, garlic, pine nuts and lemon juice into a mini chopper. Chop the ingredients until you have a pesto consistency.

Cheese sauce:

Peel the zucchinis to avoid a green cheese sauce. Peel the soaked almonds, to avoid the brown color from the peel. Blend the zucchini with the pine nuts, almonds, nutritional yeast and lemon juice. Avoid using any water in the blender, as this will make the sauce too thin.

Assemble: 

Make a layer of zucchini sheets in the bottom. It’s a good idea to merge them together. Then assemble like this:

marinara, pesto, “cheese sauce”, zucchini sheets, marinara, pesto, “cheese sauce”, zucchini sheets, marinara and “cheese sauce”.

Enjoy.

Love,

Katrine.
