2 teaspoons dried basil

1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves

1 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves

½ teaspoon dried thyme leaves

¾ teaspoon finely ground sea salt

½ cup (120 ml) avocado oil, or ½ cup (105 g) ghee

1 pound (455 g) ground turkey

1 small yellow onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 cups (280 g) shredded mozzarella cheese (dairy-free or regular), divided

2 large eggs, beaten

3 medium zucchinis, sliced lengthwise into thin sheets

2 cups (475 ml) marinara sauce

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (205°C).
  2. Place the dried herbs and salt in a small bowl. Pinch with your fingers to mix.
  3. Heat the oil in a medium-sized frying pan over medium heat. Add the turkey, onion, garlic, and 2 teaspoons of the herb mixture and sauté until the turkey is no longer pink, about 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, place 1 cup (140 g) of the cheese and the beaten eggs in a medium-sized bowl along with the remaining herb mixture; stir to combine.
  5. When the meat is cooked, assemble the lasagna: Place half of the zucchini slices in a 13 by 9-inch (33 by 23-cm) baking dish, followed by the turkey mixture, the cheese mixture, half of the sauce, the rest of the zucchini slices, and the remaining sauce. Top with the remaining 1 cup (140 g) of shredded cheese.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes, until bubbly and the cheese has melted. Allow to sit for 20 minutes before serving.
