Gluten-Free Kale Pesto Lasagna Roll-Ups




Yield 8 servings



  1. Start by prepping each component. You can blend up the sunflower seed parm., then blend your almond ricotta and then the walnut "meat".
  2. Finish with blending up the kale pesto. Doing it in this order will allow for no clean up in between, it's okay for a little bit of each one to mix with the next.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add in your lasagna noodles and cook until al dente. Mine took about 11 minutes. Follow the directions on the package, minus 2-3 minutes.
  4. Quickly but carefully transfer each to a large bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. You don't want them to get mushy.
  5. Let sit for a minute, drain and lay each one flat on a non-stick surface.
  6. Create an assembly line and start by filling each with a thin layer almond ricotta.
  7. Top with kale pesto and the "beefy" walnut crumble.
  8. Finish with a sprinkle of sunflower seed parmesan and begin to gently roll. Leave a little bit of the end of the noodle uncovered.
  9. Add 2-3 cups of tomato sauce at the base of your baking pan. I used a x glass Pyrex.
  10. Lay each lasagna roll, seam down in the sauce. Cover with remaining sauce on top.
  11. Bake at 375 F covered for 25 minutes.
  12. Serve hot, with a sprinkle of sunflower seed parmesan.


*I recommend soaking almonds the night before, but if you're pressed for time you can boil them for 2-3 minutes until softened. If you use a large pot, remove the almonds and use the water to cook your lasagna noodles. Store extras, cooled to room temperature, in an air-tight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.
