Soooo… You love pasta and heavy comfort foods, but are trying to stick to a grain-free dairy-free paleo diet?


Truly The Best Paleo Lasagna |

Honestly, I have a hard time sticking to any diet for the long haul.


However, our family will go on a paleo diet “cleanse” on occasional after a season of excessively naughty eating. This helps us get back on track and make better food choices, at least for a while.

What usually happens is that we will eat lean protein and salad (or roasted veggies) for the first few days, then around day 4-5 I start getting scornful looks when the kids come to the dinner table.

This is the time I start getting artsy with my paleo recipes.

How to Make the Best Paleo Lasagna |

It can take a little creativity to mimic foods the kids love, without grains and dairy.

Some recipes have been more successful than others.

Cashew Cheese

For The Best Paleo Lasagna, The meat sauce and noodles weren’t the issue. Zucchini makes a marvelous noodle substitute when baked into the lasagna layers.

It was the cheese that created the problem…

I decided to make a “cashew cheese spread” which is essentially fresh-made cashew butter with savory seasoning. No, it’s not cheese and doesn’t taste like cheese. Let’s be clear here.

However, it does offer a creamy quality, rich flavor, and salty nutty essence the way cheese does.

Then I spread finely chopped cauliflower over the top of the cashew cheese spread to mimic the rustic texture of ricotta or cottage cheese, that you find in many lasagna recipes.

After baking three layers of meat sauce, zucchini noodles, and two cheese substitutes, I had a grain-free, dairy-free paleo lasagna recipe that almost made me teary-eyed with delight!
