This recipe comes to us thanks to Jonny Freesh, where raw food meets rap music.  Thanks Jonny!



    Spiralizer, Blender, Dehydrator, 9” Square Casserole Dish


Marinated Veggies

  •     1 cup Peeled, De-Stemmed & Sliced Button Mushrooms
  •     ½ cup Parsley (Tightly Packed to Measure) (Chopped)
  •     ¼ cup Thinly Sliced Onions
  •     2 cloves of Garlic (Minced)


  •     1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  •     1 tbsp Olive Oil
  •     1 tbsp Bragg's / Tamari / Coconut Aminos

Other Veggies

  •     1 cup Shredded Carrot
  •     3 cups Thick Zucchini Noodles (weeped)
  •     1 cup Chopped Yellow Pepper
  •     1 cup Cherry Tomatoes (sliced in half)

Cheeze Sauce

  •     ½ cup Cashew Butter
  •     ¾ cup Water
  •     ½ cup Pine Nuts
  •     ½ cup Chopped Red Pepper
  •     3 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  •     1 clove Garlic
  •     4 tsp Black or Red Maca Powder
  •     1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  •     1 tsp Ligh Miso
  •     ¼ tsp Salt


  •     ½ cup Pine Nuts (chopped)
  •     1 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  •     2 tsp Black or Red Maca Powder
  •     2 ½ tsp Dried Parsley
  •     1 tsp Lemon Juice
  •     ¼ tsp Paprika
  •     1/8 tsp Salt


  1. Prepare Marinated Veggies and mix with Marinade in a large bowl.
  2. Spiralize Zucchini and weep by placing on a double layer of paper towels, lightly sprinkling with salt and then covering with another double layer of paper towels. This is to remove excess water from the zucchini.
  3. Prepare remaining veggies.
  4. Blend all sauce ingredients until smooth and creamy.
  5. Prepare crumble and mix thoroughly by hand so the powders don't clump.
  6. Remove paper towels from Zucchini noodles, pat down with paper towels to soak up any remaining water and then mix with carrots, yellow pepper, tomatoes and cheeze sauce.
  7. Pour half of veggie and cheeze sauce mix into casserole dish.
  8. Spread all marinated veggies on top of first layer of veggie and cheeze sauce mix.
  9. Pour remainder of veggie and cheeze sauce mix on top of marinated veggies.
  10. Sprinkle crumble on top of casserole.
  11. Dehydrate at 115 Fahrenheit for 2 – 20 hours. At 2 hours it will be quite wet and more like a pasta with cheese sauce, and as you get towards around 12-14 hours it becomes quite well “cooked” together like a baked casserole. I find it best around 16-18 hours. It's worth the wait.2-hours-7.jpg
