Raw Nut Free Gluten Free Lasagna

Posted Jan 01 2010 12:00am

Good Morning Friends,

Due to the request from our lovely readers we are sharing our raw lasagna recipe with you all!!! Plus we will share due to more request about our homemade yogurt! :)

          Pure2Raw Recipe: Raw Gluten Free Nut Free Vegan Lasagna

We like to call it our winter flavored lasagna because we tried to use a winter/fall squash and more earthy flavors than the typical tomato and cashew cheez raw lasagnas out there ;) We we find can be too heavy for us.

Now for raw lasagnas there are a few more steps due to all the layers but well worth it in the end!

Ingredients:

Base layers or a.k.a the noodles

  • zucchini
  • butternut squash

Now time to make our noodles

First we did this on a mandoline though you could always hand cut yourself into very thin stripes. Though mandoline makes it very easy and quick ;)   A great kitchen tool to have!!!

Repeat for the zucchini

We cut the zucchini in half to make the noodles the length we were looking for.

We also soaked our butternut squash noodles while we made the rest of the layers, we feel it makes it a little easier on our tummies to digest.

Well that is all folks for your raw un-cooking lesson with the Pure2Raw Twins :)

We were a little nervous about this recipe because we took what Michelle learned at school for her raw lasagna and tried to put our own twist on it. One we wanted to be very different than most raw lasagnas with having no ‘nuts’ and two we like to use different flavorings like cinnamon and coriander. We just love those spices :) But if you are in the creative mood go ahead and try creating your own version and play around with different spices and vegetables. The possibilities are endless!

We will share more about our homemade yogurt later today :)

Till next time,

The Twins

L&M
