    River30 got a reaction from LauraOC in Cashew Cream Veggie Lasaga?   
    I'm no moderator (or expert), but I personally wouldn't make something like this. It seems to fall heartily into the "SWYPO" category -- replicating something using W30 ingredients that could trigger an emotional / psychological response. It's just like they say with off-limits paleo pancakes that are just egg and banana, right? It seems to be the same concept, just coming at it from a savory instead of sweet angle. 
    Similarly.. what if you did something like create a savory "pizza crust" out of just cauliflower (something I've seen pop up a lot) or plantain or whatnot, and cover that with tomato sauce, cashew cream, and basil, and put it under the broiler until it looks like pizza... I personally wouldn't do that. I
    I think there's a real value in preparing and looking at whole foods on your plate, and not trying to replicate non-W30 dishes. AND YET ... I use cauliflower "rice" and zucchini "noodles" all the time, so is there really a difference? 
    All this to say I don't have an answer...I'd only GUESS that probably there should be some personal reflection before making a compliant "trigger" food like this, if that's a problem for anyone.

    Happy to help, Laura. And @kirkor, it's really the fact that in this recipe, cashew cream is masquerading as cheese, trying to be something it's not. That's definitely the iffy part. If it was just veggies and tomato sauce, like a ratatouille, that would be fine though!

    Thank you @River30 for your reply! You basically reiterated everything we've been saying as moderators. We don't see a difference between this, banana pancakes, sweet potato apple breakfast bake, paleo pizza crust, etc. They all seem to be trying to bend, stretch & break the rules.

    This reminds me: my sister's youngest was gaining weight too quickly (in her doctor's opinion) so the doc suggested instead of feeding her breastmilk when she was hungry, she should give her "a little" sugar water (!). uh huh. yeah. new doctor.
    ps. the kid is a healthy happy 4-year old now.
