View Full Version : Lasagna

Just made my first lasagna!!! And although it doesn't really taste like lasagna, the flavours are reminiscent... enough to satisfy me :D :D
I love to cook, and until now, hadn't tried any involved raw recipes, especially things meant to mimic cooked foods... This was great! It was labour intensive and involved and I felt like I was back in chef mode. :)
Now, what to try next... :p

Your picture is BEAUTIFUL!! I guess I'll give this a try. Was this Alissa's recipe, or did you use a recipe??

Your lasagna looks positively divine!!! You have great skill with a camera!
What did you use for the wonderful white cheesey-looking filling?

Awww thanks, I am totally blushing :o
Food styling and photography is another hobby from my cooked 'chef' days :) I don't know what I love more: making the food, eating the food or photographing the food ;)
The white cheese filling is a cashew cheese, I just kinda winged it, but basically any cashew cheese recipe would probably be pretty close. Mine is just cashews, lemon and lime juice, a little basil and cilantro and seasalt.
And, nope, no real recipe for the rest of it... I made the marinara sauce with tomato, soaked sundried tomato, red bell pepper and basil, and a bit of ground flax to help it 'congeal' (ewww gross word)
Thanks for the compliments - I hope I'll have more photos to share soon :D

How did you get your cashew cheese so white. It looks just like ricotta.

karenisraw - hmm, interesting question, which I can't answer... I don't know!
I just soaked my 'raw' cashews for probably close to 24 hours.. which is a lot longer than I read one is to soak them for, but it works to make a wonderful fluffy paste, and I grind them in the food processor not a blender.
other than that? :confused: who knows? Have you made things with cashews before that turned out less white?
As a side note, I have read so much about cashews not being really raw, unless you order expensive ones off a website. These I got in the bulk at the store, and after that extensive soaking period :) they actually began to sprout. at least it sure looked like a sprout! so I guess they're raw enough :D
