Raw Lasagna and Green Soup

Last night while checking out some new blogs I got inspired to make a raw I used what I had on hand.  We are snowbound today.  On top of all the ice we received 5-6" of snow is piling up, so I thought it best to stay home.


1 small zuchinni -thinly sliced
1 small butternut squash-thinly sliced
1 1/2- 2 c of frozen artichoke-thawed
raw sun-dried tomato marinara
Italian raw cheese
olive oil
balsamic vinegar
Himalyan Salt

Sundried Tomato Marinara
1 large tomato
handful of sun-dried tomatoes
1 date
black pepper
olive oil (optional) just a drizzle
Himalyan salt
blend in Vita-mix...if you don't have one make sure you soak the sun-dried tomatoes first

Italian Raw Cheese
1 c. macadamia nuts (soaked and drained)
1 c. sunflower seeds (soaked and drained)
1-2 garlic cloves
1/2 t. Himalyan Salt
1/4 c. lemon juice
1/4 c. water
oregano, basil, thyme

blend in Vita-mix until smooth...add water as necessary to get right consistency
you will have more than you need with the can use it on raw pizza's or as a dip for veggies
1. prepare cheese and marinara and sit in fridge
2. marinate artichokes in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, oregano, basil, thyme
3. prepared zuchinni and butternut squash~peel and slice on a mandoline
4.lightly salt squash
5. Assemble your lasagna 
a. place a very thin layer of marinara on the bottom of dish so noodles will stick
b. arrange one type of noodle
c. spread cheese on noodles
d. place spinach on top of cheese
e. chop up artichokes and place on cheese
f. top with marinara
g.noodles/cheese/spinach/artichokes/marinara~until gone

I chopped up my leftover butternut squash and let it sit in leftover marinate and then squeezed it out and spread over the top. 

note that my cheese is yellow...I had made a cheddar cheese with the entire batch by adding tumeric for color before dividing...if you are only making the lasagna half your cheese recipe and leave out the tumeric


1 cucumber
1/2 large tomato
5-6 baby carrots
small handful of cilantro
1-2 c. baby spring mix
spicy guacamole
lime juice

blend until desired consisteny and I topped it with dulse granules and cheezy kale chips

Remember to keep a fruit/veggie/nuts/seeds available for your kids to munch could also keep a stash of green smoothies or green juices in the fridge (my kiddo's like the green lemonade)

or what was on your table?
today's a.m tray was a fruit tray~
blood oranges, kiwi, pineapple spears and grapes
sorry no picture....they gobbled it down before I got the chance :)
