To make the cheez: soak the cashews in water for 2-3 hours. Then drain and blend until the consistency is similar to cheese.
To make the base: preheat your oven to 375F. Mix the ground flax with water and reserve. Grate the sweet potato, then mix the grated sweet potato with the ground flax & water mixture, then coconut oil and the Italian seasoning. Press into a 9x9 baking dish, and bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden in color.
To make the filling: Heat the oil, add the shallots and cook until transparent. Add the spinach, tomatoes, peas and cook until the vegetables are done, but still crisp and not overcooked.
Transfer this mixture to a bowl and add the cheez. Then put on top of the base, and top with breadcrumbs.
Bake at 350F for 30 minutes.
