They Won't Know It's Vegan Lasagna

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • 1 box lasagna noodles
  • 2 jars spaghetti sauce (you may use less, depending on consistency)
  • 12 oz. soy hamburger crumbles (Boca or Morningstar in frozen section)
  • 3 cups (after cooking) veggies of choice (I like spinach, zucchini, and mushrooms)
  • 6-8 oz. shredded mozzerella soy cheese (Follow Your Heart, Teese, or VeganRella)
  • Tofu Ricotta Mix:
  • 1 16 oz. tub firm tofu (not silken), pressed and drained
  • 1 8 oz. tub vegan cream cheese (either Tofutti or Vegan Gourmet brand are best)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast (optional, but good)
  • 1/2 teaspoon each oregano and basil
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon salt, to taste

Directions:

  • Boil the lasagna noodles in water, lightly salted with a bit of oil to prevent sticking. Drain when al dente (firm but cooked) and let cool. Meanwhile, cook the veggies if raw. I cook them in vegetable broth and a pinch of salt until lightly cooked, then drain. Microwave the soy crumbles according to box directions. Shred the soy cheese.
  • Put the Tofu Ricotta ingredients (except vegan cream cheese) into a food processor. Use the pulse function to keep the coarse texture of the tofu. If adding Tofutti, microwave for 30 seconds to soften. Use a wooden spoon to mix lightly into the blended ricotta mixture.
  • Layer the ingredients in two or three layers, starting with noodles, then sauce, then tofu ricotta, then soy crumbles, then veggies. Repeat. Top it with a layer noodles, sauce and soy cheese. Bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool slightly, eat and enjoy alone or with garlic bread. Contains 8 servings.

Really Cool Lasagna Pans - 1 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Chicago Metallic Lasagna Trio Pan, 12-Inch by 15-Inch by 3-Inch (11-1/2-Inch by 2-1/2-Inch Cavities)
Chicago Metallic Lasagna Trio Pan, 12-Inch by 15-Inch by 3-Inch (11-1/2-Inch by 2-1/2-Inch Cavities)

The Trio Lasagna Pan from Chicago Metallic has 3 separate channels allowing cooks to be creative and makes it easy to serve vegetarians or carnivores from one pan. A custom-fit, exclusive spatula is deep enough to get that great first piece with no mess. The width and length of each channel is the same as standard lasagna noodles, making lasagna building fast and easy. Can be used to make three dinners in one batch - tonight's dinner and two for future nights or for those unexpected guests.

Baker's Edge - Simple Lasagna Pan
Baker's Edge - Simple Lasagna Pan

In a conventional pan, lasagna can get messy in a hurry. After a few servings are removed, the layers slump and the noodles slide... and what's left in the pan starts to look a lot less appetizing (You'll know you're in trouble when your dinner guests put down their forks and reach for their spoons). Our Simple Lasagna Pan solves this problem by keeping the noodles and layers neatly stacked, regardless of how many portions are removed. Each serving of lasagna is held in place by the pan's inner walls, so even the last bite will look (and taste) as good as the first.

You don't have to make a heaping helping of lasagna for just you and a guest when you have this vibrantly colorful and stylish lasagna pan. Measuring 9 by 13 inches, this pan is great for cooking a small-sized lasagna. Dishwasher, microwave, freezer safe , too!

      These recipes look great. I have a hard time getting my husband to try vegetarian dishes that normally have meat. I find if I don't tell him, it works out better.
