Today I want to share with you my favorite recipe for a vegan lasagna…
…there are millions of recipes for vegan lasagna out there but I like this one best – its without soy/tofu, its incredibly delicious and healthy.
Here is what you need:
Mushrooms (as many as you like)
Spinach (if you like – I sometimes add spinach and sometimes I just leave it)
The tomatoe sauce:
The “bechamel” sauce:
Margarine or coconut fat
Milk of your choice (I usually use homemade cashew milk)
Salt and pepper
For the “cheese”:
Almonds (or almond butter)
Sweet pepper powder
Salt and pepper
And of course: Lasagna slices
How to do:
For the tomatoe sauce:
Cut the celery, onion and garlic into small pieces, fry in a pan or pot, add tomatoe purree or tomatoe sauce, herbs and salt and pepper. Easy 🙂
For the bechamel sauce:
Allow the margarine or coconut fat to melt in a pot, add some flour. Then add milk of your choice and wait until the sauce gets thick. If you need to, add more flour. Then add nutmeg, salt and pepper to your taste.
After having made the two sauces, cut the zucchini and eggplant into slices and fry them carefully from both sides in a pan (or grill them) so that they get soft.
Also cut the mushrooms into pieces and fry them.
Now you can start the layering – I always start with the lasagna slices, then I add tomatoe sauce and then I put the first layer of zucchini… then I put bechamel sauce on top, take some lasagna slices again and continue with the tomatoe sauce – veggies – bechamel- lasagna slices and so on…
You can add the mushrooms at the end or in between, you can also add spinach or other veggies if you like.
… finally, I make my “cheese”. For the cheese I take almonds (without the skin) or almond butter and I mix them in my high speed blender with some water, yeast flakes, sweet pepper powder, salt and pepper until I get a smooth paste. I add the paste on top of the last layering (usually my mushrooms which I put on top).
I leave the lasagna in the oven at around 200°C for some 40 minutes.
Enjoy your vegan veggie lasagna 🙂
