I wish I could claim this recipe as my own but I googled lasagna fillings and found Hungry Hungry Hippie. Here is her recipe which is pretty much genius and absolutely delicious. I used it as a jumping off point for a vegan lasagna. Lasagna typically is loaded with an insane amount of calories and a pain to make. This one is super healthy and pretty dang easy. I think I assembled it in under 10 minutes.
I used a 8x8 pan and made 3 layers. You can play around with it and make it as thick or thin as you want.
The important thing is to have everything ready and then the assembly goes quick.
List of Ingredients
28 oz jar marinara sauce or homemade
1 pkg firm tofu
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 cup Italian style hummus (i used Trader Joe's Tomato Basil but Garlic would work too)
4 cups fresh spinach chopped
2 garlic cloves minced
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
Peheat oven to 375
Boil the lasagna noodles for about 6 minutes
For the filling...
In a bowl, crumble the tofu with your hands to resemble ricotta cheese
mix in the nutritional yeast, hummus, spinach, garlic, salt and pepper
Begin your layers...
Pour all the remaining marinara sauce over the top and bake at 375 for 45 minutes
Let stand for about 15 minutes before cutting
I'm telling you this is so good. We had to force ourselves not eat the whole thing in one setting. I served it with a big green salad and homemade bread. I will be making this again v soon.
Oh and here is a great link that was left in the comments this week. It sums up why I am vegan so beautifully. I hope you enjoy it. Watch it HERE.
Let's start eating like we give a damn.
