Vegan Stuffed Shells

Ingredients:

1.5 cups raw cashews
2 cloves garlic
3 TBSP lemon juice
1 tsp salt (separated)
1 tsp pepper (separated)
1/2 cup organic firm tofu
1 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp paprika
10 oz brown rice pasta shells (or organic)
Chopped organic greens (desired amount)
1 jar of organic marinara (or homemade)

Instructions:

Soak cashews overnight to soften. Cook pasta al dente, according to package directions. Puree cashews + garlic + lemon juice + 1/2 tsp of both salt and pepper until smooth. Crumble your tofu (drained but NOT pressed) into a bowl and mix in oregano, remaining salt and pepper, thyme, chili powder, red pepper flakes, and paprika. Add your cashew cream and a large handful of organic chopped greens (i used a blend of baby kale, spinach, and chard). Coat the bottom of a glass baking dish with a thin layer of marinara. Stuff each shell with your vegan “ricotta” mixture and place in the dish. Top with remaining sauce and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. YUMMY!
