Lasagna:
1. Preheat oven to 400
2. Make your marinade by combining all ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Prep your veggies. Slice you ingredients very thin so that the marinade absorbs quickly.
4. Place your sliced ingredients (tofu, mushrooms, tomatoes, greens) into your marinade bowl. Toss gently. Add more EVOO/vinegar if needed to cover ingredients. Allow to marinate at least 20 minutes. Otherwise you can prep this part for overnight marination.
5. If you haven't made your Chive Ricotta Lasagna in advance - do it now. Set aside.
6. Begin building your lasagna. See the step-by-step pics for the best "building" details. But basically, sauce, noodles, sauce, greens, tofu, sauce, noodles, sauce, mushrooms, noodles, ricotta, noodles, sauce, cheese, fresh tomatoes, chives, black pepper. And done! You can really build a lasagna however you'd like though. There are very few rules.
7. Cover your lasagna and store in fridge until ready to bake that day. Or bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 45-60 minutes. Note: if baking lasagna from a chilled fridge, your baking time will be longer since the temp will be colder.

Raw Nut Ricotta:
1. Add raw cashews to a big bowl of water, add a pinch of salt. Soak in fridge overnight or at least for about 2-4 hours. More soaking, smoother texture.
2. Drain soaked cashews. Add them to a food processor.
3. Add in the vinegar or lemon juice, soy milk or creamer, agave and EOO.
4. Blend on high until smooth. This may take a few minutes depending on the strength of your food processor. If your ricotta is looking too dry, add more soy milk and/or more EVOO. I used soy creamer which made my ricotta nice and creamy.
5. Add in the chives, pepper, garlic and salt. Pulse until blended in. Add in the optional vegenaise here.

My daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes a year and a half ago and (Plan to Eat) has been instrumental in keeping our family eating healthy. It is easy and stress free. I love being able to print a grocery list based on what my meal plan is for the week. It is hassle free in a very busy and hassled life!

I just wanted to say thank you for making Plan to Eat so simple. I have tried other recipe planners before and just found them so clunky and time-consuming that it wasn't worth my while. Plan to Eat has taken all of that and turned it on its head. I love that you don't have to enter ingredients or instructions one at a time. Even if the recipe won't transfer (and they do 90% of the time) all I have to do is copy and paste everything at once. And don't even get me started on how unbelievably painless it is to add this stuff to my menu planner. Even my husband, who thought subscription-based meal planning software was frivolous, is a true believer. He upgraded our free trial to paid before it was over, and he didn't even tell me first because he was so sold on it. Now, in minutes I can do what used to take hours...which meant it never got done. Thank you a million times over!

This website makes my life a million times better! It keeps everything organized in one place and is easy to use. I like that it works very quickly on my mobile phone also when I am marking things off my list at the grocery store.
