1 large zucchini or 2 medium

Tomato Sauce:
3 - 16oz (390g) cans no salt chopped tomatoes
1 - 6oz (170g) can no salt tomato paste
1/2 cup red wine
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp thyme
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp Braggs liquid amino acids

Mushroom Mix:
800g (1.5 lb) diced mushrooms
2 onions diced
3 cloves garlic minced
1 red pepper diced
1 Tbsp smoked paprika
1 tsp Braggs liquid amino acids
2 tsp onion powder

1 bunch (300g) chopped kale
1tsp onion powder
3 cloves garlic minced

2 cups raw cashews
4 cloves garlic
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
4 Tbsp lemon juice
4 Tbsp white wine
2 Tbsp dijon mustard



  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Mandolin slice your zucchini lengthwise to make your lasagna "noodles".
  3. Place slices on a cookie sheet lined with baking paper and put in the oven for about 15 minutes.
  4. It may take a couple cookie sheets to fit all of the noodles. This takes some of the moisture out of the zucchini so that the lasagna isn't watery.
  5. Put all sauce ingredients into saucepan and cook on medium heat until sauce is thickened.
  6. Next, cook the mushroom mixture making sure to cook out most of the water.
  7. In another pan add a few tablespoons of water and add the kale mixture.
  8. Cook down until kale is wilted. Let kale cool and then squeeze out excess water.
  9. Put cheese ingredients into blender and blend until smooth.
  10. Begin layering zucchini, sauce, and mushroom mixture into a large baking dish.
  11. Once you have used all the ingredients, finish by pouring the cheese mixture on top.
  12. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes.

I know it’s the last thing anyone wants to think of now but do you have wfpb Christmas recipes? I need good alternatives if I’m to carry the family with me on this journey. Lovely website.

Can you make this dish ahead and freeze it for a later time to cook?

Jill Dalton May 26, 2018 - 8:51 am

No, this will not do well after being frozen. It turns watery. =(

just curious why this has to bake for 40 minutes, when everything is already cocked .
what would happen, if you put it in for only 10 minutes ? you could grill grill the top to get the cheese mixture brown

That would work too. Just personally, I like to have it a little more soft. I feel like the flavors meld together more too when you give it a bit more cook time.
