"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

For the Cheeze:
1 cup raw cashews, soaked in water for 30 mins or overnight
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/4 cup vegetable broth or water (or more as needed)
1.5 cups fresh basil leaves (lightly packed)
1/2 cup nutritional yeast (gives the cheese flavour)
3/4-1 tsp kosher salt (or to taste) + freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder (optional)

For the Lasagna:
454 g Box of lasagna noodles*
1.5 bottles of pasta sauce or use homemade marinara sauce
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 sweet onion, chopped (2.5 cups)
2 small zucchini, chopped
1 cup cremini mushrooms, sliced
1 large red pepper, chopped
1 large handful spinach
2 pre-cooked veggie burgers, crumbled (optional)
Lemon Basil Cheeze Sauce (from above)
Daiya cheese (as much as desired)

Drain and rinse soaked cashews. With the food processor turned on, drop in your garlic cloves and process until chopped. Add in the rest of the ingredients and process until smooth, scraping down the bowl as needed.
Preheat oven to 400F. In a large skillet, saute onion and garlic over low-medium heat for 5 minutes. Now add in the rest of the veggies and saute for another 10-15 minutes. *Season well with Herbamare or kosher salt and black pepper.* This is key or you will have bland tasting vegetables in your lasagna.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to boil. Boil lasagna noodles for 8 minutes, drain, and rinse immediately with cold water.

Add 1 cup of pasta sauce on the bottom of your casserole dish. Add a layer of noodles, half the basil cheeze sauce, half the vegetables, more pasta sauce, another layer of noodles, veggie burger crumbles (optional), the rest of the cheeze sauce, the rest of the vegetables, more pasta sauce, and finally a sprinkle of cheese.
Cover with tinfoil and prick with fork a few times. Bake at 400F for 40-45 minutes and then remove tinfoil and broil for 5 minutes on medium. Watch closely so you dont burn the edges. Remove and serve. Will keep in the fridge for at least 3-4 days.
