Zucchini Lasagna and Blackberry Cobbler

I love when a meal comes COMPLETELY from local farmers! Last night for dinner I made a delicious batch of zucchini lasagna with homemade tomato sauce.

The Ingredients:
1 large zucchini, sliced into thin slices
1 pound ground beef (seasoned with nutmeg, garlic powder and basil)
1 bell pepper
1 onion
1 garlic clove, minced

Cashew Cheese:
1 cup soaked cashews
Almond Milk
Salt and Pepper

The Directions:

 I blended up tomatoes in my VitaMix and followed these directions.
 I decided to add a green bell pepper, onion and minced garlic. Sauted first!
 I also decided to add a pound of ground beef.

Then I started to layer!!!
 I topped the delicious zucchini lasagna with a cashew cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes. You want to make sure the zucchini is tender and not mushy!
I didn't stop there!!!
I made a quick and easy dessert!!! 

Blackberry Cobbler

The Ingredients:
1 bin of fresh blackberries (I just picked ours up from CSA!) about 3 cups
1 1/2 cup Almond Meal (ground up almonds)
1 egg 
2 TBSP melted Coconut Oil

The Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 
Wash and Pat dry the blackberries. Add into a pie dish. Drizzle with honey. 
In another bowl mix together the Almond Meal, egg and coconut oil. 
Do not over mix... 

crumble the topping onto the blackberries. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.

ENJOY --- AGAIN!!! :) 


  1. That cobbler sounds fantastic. Can't wait to try it tonight (I'll probably use some peaches that I can't seem to get rid of). Thanks for the recipes!

  2. Hi Lindsey,

  4. 3 Researches SHOW Why Coconut Oil Kills Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you actually burn fat by eating coconut fats (including coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 researches from major medicinal magazines are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world upside down!
