Equipment

  • High Power Blender or Food Processor
  • Oven

Ingredients

Vegan Stuffed Shells

  • 1 12-ounce package jumbo shells
  • 3 cups Marinara sauce

Spinach Ricotta

  • 2 cups Raw cashews
  • 1 14-Ounce Firm tofu
  • ½ cup Nutritional yeast
  • ¼ cup Fresh lemon juice (about 1 large lemon) and some zest (optional)
  • ¼ cup Water
  • 1 ½ tsp Salt
  • 2 tbsp Italian spice
  • 3-4 cups Spinach

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.Boil the Shells: Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the jumbo shells. Cook for 7-10 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside. Some of them will probably break, but you only need about 3/4 of the package for this recipe.
  • Spinach Ricotta: Add the cashews to a food processor or blender and blend them up. Now add the rest of the ricotta ingredients EXCEPT the spinach. I added a little lemon zest but that’s optional. Blend until smooth and creamy. Now add the spinach, and blend it up.In a large casserole dish, evenly spread about 1 cup of the marinara sauce. Scoop about 2 tablespoons of the spinach ricotta into each shell and place open side up into the baking dish. Repeat this step with the rest of your ingredients.
  • Drizzle the remaining marinara sauce on top of the stuffed shells, and put your dish in the oven. Cook for 25 minutes.
