Tofu Lasagna: A Recipe

Updated on May 17, 2013

Tofu Lasagna

I found this recipe online sometime ago and have made a few modifications since the first time. It is important to follow a recipe closely when you make a new dish for the first time, but as you get to know what you are doing you can make changes that more closely match your taste.

For example, I prefer the spinach lasagna noodles to the regular type. I also use my own tomato sauce. I find the end result to be a richer more satisfying one.

This meal makes a delightful change for a Sunday supper if you are seeking to reduce the amount of meat that you and your family are eating. Serve with a seasonal green salad that has a balsamic vinagrete dressing and you have one fine dinner.

Tofu lasagna:

Ingredients

1 lb. firm tofu, drained & mashed

1 lb. spinach lasagna noodles

1/4 c. Parmesan cheese, grated

1 tsp. onion powder

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 tbsp. parsley, chopped

1 tbsp. basil

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1 qt. Bob’s Tomato sauce

8 oz. Mozzarella cheese, grated

Chili peppers to taste

Preparation;

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Boil lasagna noodles for 5 minutes.

Add 2 tablespoons vinegar and 1 tablespoon oil to boiling water.

Drain noodles and rinse thoroughly with cold water.

Drain and mash tofu, if needed, the firm tofu that I use does not need much draining.

Combine tofu with Parmesan cheese, onion, powder, garlic powder, parsley, basil and salt. Blend well.

Oil the bottom and sides of a 9"x13" pan.

Arrange a layer of lasagna noodles.

Spread enough tofu mixture to cover noodle layer, then cover with sauce.

Repeat this layering until all ingredients are used.

Top with grated Mozzarella cheese. Bake for 30 minutes.

Remove from the oven, and enjoy.

Tofu can replace meat in a number of dishes, it is not very expensive and you can buy it a most supermarkets or specialty stores.

Types of tofu

Firm tofu - Firm tofu is dense and can be cubed and stir-fried, grilled, scrambled, pickled, smoked, baked, barbecued or served in soups. Firm tofu is higher in protein, fats and calcium than other types of tofu.

Soft tofu - Soft tofu is more suited for recipes in which tofu needs to be blended.

Silken tofu - Silken tofu has a creamy structure and is also used in blended dishes. In Japan, silken tofu is consumed as such with some soy sauce.
