The World’s Best Ever Magical Paleo Lasagna – Guest Post From: Predominantly Paleo

lasagna

Today I would like to introduce to you a very talented young lady: Jennifer of Predominantly Paleo, who was so nice to share this wonderful recipe with me! Not only the Italians can make a mean lasagna!

 

The World’s Best Ever Magical Paleo Lasagna

Alright, alright, so maybe it hasn’t quite yet won these accolades, but, I can assure you that this was pretty much out of control good.  I never could imagine that lasagna could be edible if you took out the two most important ingredients: noodles and cheese.  But alas, not only was it edible it was incredible! I hope you’ll agree!!!

Ingredients:

For “cheese”

  • 1 cup cashews soaked for 2-3 hours and drained
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 egg

For meat sauce:

For veggie layers:

  • 1 eggplant
  • 1 large zucchini sliced in 1/4 inch pieces
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup cashew meal
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 tablespoons water
  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. In a bowl, whisk 2 eggs and 2 tablespoons water
  3. Mix cashew meal and garlic salt on a plate
  4. Slice eggplant in 1/4 inch slices, saturate in egg wash, then dredge in cashew meal
  5. Place on baking sheet and cook for 30 minutes, flipping once
  6. Reduce heat to 375 in oven
  7. While eggplant is baking, brown ground beef in medium sized skillet then add marinara and turn off heat
  8. For “cheese”, place soaked cashews, water, seasonings, and apple cider vinegar in blender or food processor and puree
  9. Add in egg and blend again briefly
  10. In a greased casserole dish, place a layer of sliced zucchini on the bottom
  11. Now spoon half of meat sauce over zucchini
  12. Spread half of “cheese” on top of meat sauce
  13. Layer baked eggplant on top of “cheese”
  14. Then spoon remaining meat sauce on top and “cheese” on top of meat sauce
  15. I spread the “cheese” into the meat sauce a little bit so they were slightly combined
  16. Bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes

 

 

 

About Jennifer from Predominantly Paleo

Jennifer is a wife and mother of 3 in pursuit of better health for her family. 
After being gluten free for 4 years, and having a multitude of chronic health issues, she realized there was still a lot of junk in her pantry and change was needed.  Jennifer began feeding her family more meals from WHOLE foods and less from boxes. Her recipes are predominantly paleo, meaning they are free of grain, gluten, dairy, and refined sugar, but make allowances for a few treats and sweets. She believes food can be medicine when used appropriately and that a few changes now can equate to huge benefits later. Healthy food does not need to be flavorless and void of personality, which she aims to accomplish through her many recipes.

  1. This looks great – perfect for summer because it’s full of veggies and is lighter than the original. I’m curious: Does the cashew meal give this a bit more of a nutty flavor or can you not really taste it? Love this whole site and can’t wait to see what else you come up with. Thanks for sharing!

      You can actually barely taste the cashew meal, but it adds to the dept of flavor of the recipe!

  2. Sara Goetz says:

    Hi! This looks delicious! Do you think I could make this a day head and bake it the next day?

    • The Nourished Caveman says:

      Sara, I am afraid it might get a weird texture….maybe you could get all the ingredients ready and then just assemble and bake? Or make it and then re-heat it?

  3. robyn says:

    would it be ok to use almond flour instead of the cashew meal for the dredging?
