Bunny's Raw Lasagna


Bunny's Raw Lasagna, originally uploaded by darnlucky.

I got up early Saturday morning, and cut herbs from the garden, and then started rooting around in the kitchen to see what I could make using the gorgeous basil, parsley, and thyme that I cut. I decided to attempt a raw lasagna, even though I only had one tomato in the house!

I made a tomato sauce, a walnut basil pesto, and a sesame seed cheese in the morning, and then let them sit all day in the fridge to soak in all of the flavor of the fresh herbs. When dinner time rolled around, I stacked up zucchini strips, spinach, and red pepper, alternating the sauces until I had a formidable pile of raw lasagna.

It turned out to be very tasty. Neither Basil or I could finish our dinner, so we let Skye and Gizmo have a taste. They both ate it up with gusto, and didn't leave a veggie in the bowl.

So beautiful! And so creative with whatever you had around. Did you already have recipes for the pesto and cheeze? I've not tried making any raw cheeze yet.

One of my doggies loved the raw pate I made a few days ago, the other was a bit hesitant but started coming around, will be interesting to see how they take to things once the challenge is in full swing in a few days. I have a feeling there will be plenty of meals where they'll just be getting the rest of whatever mom had ;)

I'm on fasting mode for blood work tomorrow, so I shouldn't have come to check out your page. YUM!!! It's so vibrant and beautiful, Bunny!

You are definitely going a gourmet bunny! :-)

Looks beautiful! I have yet to make raw lasagna. What's my deal?! And a sesame seed cheese huh? That sounds good. What's that about? We're trying to cutdown on our nut intake so that's very intriguing. :)

Thanks for the lovely ideas and man, that really does look good!
