Step 1

To make the cheez: soak the cashews in water for 2-3 hours. Then drain and blend until the consistency is similar to cheese.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

Transfer this mixture to a bowl and add the cheez. Then put on top of the base, and top with breadcrumbs.

Step 5

Bake at 350F for 30 minutes.
