I don’t know about you but I slept really well last night. I guess after working a 9 hour shift I was a wee bit tired. I’m still drooling over my latest outing at the FIC, what I would do for a humus wrap right now let me tell you!
I am glad that so many of you had such a positive response to my last post. I was hesitant about posting it at first because I didn’t want to offend anyone, but that I realized that it is important to make my opinions and beliefs known. So to you anonymous commenters and mailers out there if my answer does not satisfy you im sorry, but im not going to change just to please you.
On a lighter note I still have five days of christmas break left before I go back to school. And I just found out that on monday the 4th my favorite show is starting back up again, Secret Life of the American Teenager. I literally was jumping up and down with excitement I have been such a huge fan of this show since the beginning. Have you ever watched this show?
1 large zucchini
Collard greens, finely shredded
2 pint cherry tomatoes
4 sun-dried tomatoes (soaked overnight, soak water reserved)
Oregano, basil and thyme (to taste)
Salt and Pepper
With a knife or a mandolin thinly slice your zucchini into thin strips. I cut mine into circles, but im sure you could cut it long ways too. Set in a dish and put aside.
Place cherry tomatoes and 2 tablespoons of sun-dried tomato soak water in a blender, and process until chunky. Add oregano, basil, salt, pepper and sun-dried tomatoes and blend again. Add water in small amounts until desired marinara consistency is reached. If you like it thicker, add less water, if you like it thinner add a little more.
In a dish place a layer of zucchini noodles, than a layer of marinara, then a layer of the tofu-cashew ricotta, then another layer of zucchini noodles. Repeat layers until you run out and every few layers add a small layer of shredded collard greens.
On a little side note the zucchini will lose some of its water so you may have to drain it. It may look like your lasagna is ruined but its okay! Just gently hold your lasagna with a knife or spoon and let the water drain out over the sink. This dish can be eaten right away, but also tastes better the second day after the flavors have time to marinate.
This dish also looks a little complicated to put together but it could not be easier and it look beautiful on a table.
Some fun new kitchen goodies that I got for christmas! Two new knives, a whisk, a cute smiley face spoon, some cookie cutters and a Rachael Ray moppine! I have always been a huge Rachael Ray fan – if only she was vegan! Regardless she has such an amazing and bubbly personality oh and I love her hair. 🙂 My mom also got me a cupcake carrier, a couple bread pans and some new cookie sheets.
Enjoy your wednesday!
