  • 1/3 cup frozen peas

Ricotta:

  • 16 ounces ricotta cheese

  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 elephant garlic clove
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp himalayan sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  • Roughly chop and steam the onion, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, zucchini, and quartered sweet potato until soft (about 10 minutes) in about 1-1 1/2 inches of water.
  • Add the spinach leaves/frozen peas and finish steaming until the spinach is just wilted (about 3 minutes).
  • While the vegetables are steaming:
  • Pour 1 jar of tomato sauce into a large bowl (with extra room for the ricotta/vegetables)
  • If you are using regular or vegan ricotta puree the ricotta ingredients in a blender then add to the tomato sauce bowl.
  • Puree the steamed vegetables in a blender (use up to 1/4 cup of water from the steamer to blend.)
  • add to the tomato sauce and ricotta bowl.
  • Add a thin layer of tomato sauce on the bottom of your pan.
  • Layer the lasagna noodles so they are overlapping a 1/2 inch for each noodle.
  • Spread a layer of cheese on top of each noodle. Spread a layer of sauce. Layer cooked meat if you are adding meat.
  • Repeat until all of your ingredients are gone
  • Top with cheese and sauce, put foil on the top of the casserole, and put it in the oven!
  • After 1/2 hour, reduce the cooking temperature to 350°F.
  • Cook an additional half hour, then let it rest for 15 minutes before slicing. This helps the layers congeal.
  • Take the 2nd jar of sauce and pour half on top of the lasagna and serve the other half in a bowl for dinner.
  • All done! Enjoy!! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments to enter our weekly photo contest! 🙂 Tag @BlenderBabes & #BlenderBabes

HEALTH BENEFITS OF BROCCOLI

Broccoli belongs to a family of vegetables called cruciferous vegetables with its close relatives including brussel sprouts, cauliflower, and cabbage.
It is an all-star food packed with many vitamins and minerals translating to many health benefits. Here are a few:

Vitamin C – builds collagen, which forms body tissue and bone, and helps cuts and wounds heal. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant that protects the body from damaging free radicals.

A cooked cup of broccoli offers as much vitamin C as an orange!

Vitamin K – is essential for the functioning of many proteins involved in blood clotting.

Fiber – Diets high in fiber promote digestive health and they can also help lower cholesterol.

Potassium – is a mineral and electrolyte that is essential for the function of nerves and heart contraction.

Folate – is necessary for the production and maintenance of new cells in the body.

Hi there, I'm Michaell! One year ago, I made the decision to stop eating processed foods. My challenge: my husband is such a picky eater that he would win against a 2 year old. Since many of my friends come to me for recipes on how to eat nutrient-rich foods, while still eating what they like, I decided to start a food blog. Every Friday I launch a new family friendly recipe that even the pickiest eaters will eat. Join my mailing list on my blog - Foodscape - or add me to your social media so I can share with you too!

  1. Hi, I just found your great-looking lasagna recipe and have a question before I make it… You mention red pepper flakes in your recipe intro but I don’t see them listed in your ingredients? What amount do you use?

    1. Hello Shelly! The recipe author says to use red pepper flakes if you don’t have a spicy tomato sauce such as Rao’s Arabriata Tomato Sauce. Not sure how much, depends on your spiciness preference. 🙂 Keep me posted how it turns out! ~Tarashaun

  2. 4 stars
