I was craving some fresh, uncooked food today. I used to work in a raw kitchen (Gorilla Food shout out!) and miss the awesome grub. So with a little time on my hands, I decided to take a stab at my own raw food lasagna (raw-sagna is so much fun to say though).The following recipe is fully inspired by the raw food mad scientist Aaron Ash and all the Gorillas working hard at my old haunt.
Ingredients and Directions
-1/4 cup almonds (ground)
-a good pinch of fresh parsley
-salt and pepper
-pinch of Italian herb mix
-1 tsp chia seeds
Chuck into a food processor. Set aside in a bowl.
-1 large tomato
-pinch of parsley, salt and pepper, pinch of cayenne and Italian herb mix again (I didn’t sway too far from an Italian flavor profile as you can see).
-1/2 tbsp olive oil
-1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
-1/2 clove of garlic
Again, food process this shiz.
-handful of spinach or more if you wanna really green up your lasagna
-1/4 sweet onion
-a little salt couldn’t hurt
Food process it again to break up the spinach
If you have a mandolin, thinly slice long strips of zucchini. I sliced strips with a knife but that made them all very umm, let’s say unique in their sizes.
Start layering by laying down zucchini, covering with greens, tomato sauce and cheesey sauce. Go crazy with it.
Note about recipe: I did find my lasagna a little watery but whatever, you can’t win ‘em all.
