Expert Tips

You can easily change the taste of this lasagna by adding different layers or flavors to it. A good addition, for example, is a layer of pesto.

You can use any other squash such as summer squash instead of zucchini. You can also use thinly sliced avocado instead.

Directions

  • 1 Soak the cashews in water overnight. One hour before lunchtime, soak the sun dried tomatoes and the dates. Mix the spinach with the olive oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste, and marinate for 1 hour.
  • 2 When you’re ready to eat, drain the sun dried tomatoes, dates, and spinach well, pressing all the liquid out of them with your hands.
  • 3 Finely chop the sun dried tomatoes and dates, and put them in a bowl together with the fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil, and oregano. Season with salt and pepper, and set aside.
  • 4 Drain the cashews, transfer to a blender, and process with the nutritional yeast, and 1/4-1/2 cup water, until smooth. Transfer to a cheesecloth and press all the water out of it.
  • 5 Use a 2-inch pastry ring to form the individual lasagnas on each plate.
  • 6 Make a layer of zucchini slices, cashew cheese, tomato sauce, and spinach. Press each layer down with a teaspoon to make sure the lasagna is firm.
  • 7 Lift the pastry ring carefully. Serve and enjoy!
