dairy free lasagna

“I like to make lasagna for my husband around this time of year. My grandma used to make Lasagna on Christmas Day, and this recipe is the closest to what I make (As I don’t follow a recipe) I do use eggs in the meat…much better consistency and there’s no allergens there.”

1/3 cup unsweetened, unflavored plant milk , such as almond, soy, cashew or rice

1/2 tsp regular or sodium free baking powder
1/2 tsp. Baking soda
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1 1/2 tsp. Ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Ground Allspice
1 cup shredded zucchini *
1/3 cup chopped walnuts (optional )

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    Line an 8×4 inch non stick or silicone loaf pan with parchment paper. In a large bowl stir together the first four ingredients (through sugar)Beat with a mixer on medium until smooth and creamy. Beat in vanilla and lemon zest. Add the next six ingredients (through allspice); beat until well combined. Fold in zucchini, and if desired, walnuts.
  2. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake 60 to 70 minutes or u Tim top is very firm to the touch and sides are pulling away from pan. Cool in pan on a wire rack 30 minutes. Use parchment to lift bread from pan to wire rack. Let bread cool completely before slicing.

*Tip, Use the large holes of a box grater to get perfectly grated zucchini. Also I added Lilly’s dark chocolate chips to mine too!
