Easy Raw Lasagna

Mandi June 3, 2011 10

Beautiful raw food is always so daunting. It is full of mystery and oohs and aahs. We always admire it but rarely have the time to replicate it. However, this gorgeous, raw lasagna dish is easy and fast, and stores so you can feed off of it all week. Talk about a dream dish!

This recipe is courtesy of my favorite aussie activist, Leigh-Chantelle of Viva La Vegan. Check out LC this summer, speaking and wooing the pants off everyone at Vida Vegan Con and The Animal Rights Conference.

    You’re right–raw lasagna can be rather scary! But in August, upon returning from studying abroad in France, I’m going to tackle that challenge once and for all. My body just SCREAMS for raw during the summertime. :)
    P.S. I love your blog, have been lurking too long, and so, hello at last! I’m going to add you to my own new blogroll @ veganonthegogo.wordpress.com if you don’t mind. :)
