Ingredients

    • 2-3 zucchini
    • 32 ounces marinara sauce
    • 1 (14 ounces) container firm tofu
    • Juice of 1 lemon
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 4 tbsp nutritional yeast
    • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
    • Fresh basil to garnish

Preparation

1. Remove tofu from package and wrap tofu block in 2 paper towels. Squeeze for 10 seconds then break apart tofu into your food processor. To the food processor add salt, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, and garlic powder. Pulse 6-10 times until you reach the consistency of ricotta cheese. Taste and adjust salt and seasonings as needed.

2. Preheat oven to 400°. Slice zucchini lengthwise into 1⁄8” thick strips, I used a vegetable peeler!

3. Spread marinara sauce onto the bottom of an oven-proof skillet; set aside.

4. Spread 1 tablespoon ricotta mixture evenly along each zucchini slice. Roll up and place in the prepared skillet; repeat with remaining zucchini slices and filling.

5. Place into oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until lasagna rolls are heated through and the cheese is beginning to brown.

6. Serve immediately. Garnish with ground pepper and fresh basil.
