Sweet Potato Lasagna

Fall is here and it seems like there is an endless supply of squash and potatoes everywhere! haha  Both of which I absolutely LOVE, so I wanted to share with you all a super easy recipe that I created with both. #QUICKANDEASY

 

Yes, this was actually a total experiment!  🙂 but it came out really tasty! A healthy alternative to the traditional lasagna with a unique flavor – perfect for fall. Free of gluten. dairy, wheat, and eggs. 

No Junk = No Guilt 

If  you want to make this a paleo-friendly version, you can leave the cheese out and substitute it with some eggs instead. This will also help keep the ingredients together.

Ingredients:

  • 2 organic sweet potatoes (yams), thinly sliced into large rounds
  • 1 large organic purple onion, sliced in half and then cut length-wise
  • 1 organic eggplant, thinly sliced into large rounds
  • 1 bag of Daiya shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 chicken breasts, boiled and shredded
  • 1 container Sonoma Gourmet butternut squash pasta sauce
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Add some olive oil to grease the bottom of an 9 x 9 oven-safe dish.
  2. Start lining the bottom of the oven-safe dish with your sweet potato.
  3. Then add a light layer of the eggplant on top of the sweet potato (spacing them apart to have enough to add an additional layer a second time).
  4. Then add a light layer of the butternut squash pasta sauce.
  5. Add layer of sliced onions; then shredded chicken
  6. Sprinkle 1/2 of the ground turmeric; then some salt and pepper.  
  7. Cover with a generous amount of cheese.
  8. Repeat steps #2-7.
  9. Cover with foil and place in the oven; bake for approximately 45-50 minutes (uncover about half way through to brown the cheese and let any extra liquid absorb).
  10. ENJOY! 🙂
