  2. Add the lemon juice, vinegar and agave.
  3. Blend to a smooth consistency.
  4. Add the tahini and season to taste with salt and pepper.

  6. Finely mince or grate the onions and add to the cream cheese mixture.
  7. Finely chop the mixed herbs and mix into the the cream cheese.
  8. Cut the ends off the zucchini.
  9. Using a lasagna sheet, cut the zucchini so that the slices will fit, evenly covering the width of the lasagne.
  10. Using a vegetables peeler slice the zucchini in very thin slices.
  11. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil.
  12. Separate the lasagne sheets and cook until soft.
  13. Be sure to gently stir the lasagne or they will stick together.
  14. To build, place a lasagna sheet on the bottom of a platter.

  16. Lay zucchini slices evenly, overlapping across the top of the cream cheese layer.
  17. Add the next layer of lasagne pasta and continue laying the cream cheese mixture and zucchini slices.
  18. We used 4 layers of each for each lasagne.
  19. The top layer will be the overlapping zucchini.

  21. Garnish with chives and mint leaves.
  22. Carefully slice the lasagne in ½ with a good sharp knife to serve each individual.
