Italian Lasagna Vegan-Style!

  • 1 of 5
Italian Lasagna Vegan-Style!

This is a recipe we reserve for special occasions, such as when we’re in celebratory mode, or when we’re trying to impress people who are skeptical about vegan food. It’s fairly time-intensive, but the end result is well worthwhile.

If you like the concept, but are keen on the idea of an easier version, check out page 4, where I have shared my own variation – Quick and Easy ‘Almost Lasagna’! It’s a simplified version I invented when we didn’t have the time to make the real thing, and it ended up becoming one of our favorite dishes.

If you have access to some good gluten-free pasta, such as the Tinkyada Brown Rice variety (they even make lasagna noodles, found at health food stores), you can make either of these recipes gluten-free, by either skipping on the ‘no-meat’ layer, or using tempeh instead of seitan… For those who can’t tolerate gluten, being able to enjoy a home-made lasagna is quite a rare treat.

For something a little more fun and interesting, and something the kids might enjoy, check out page 3 for ‘Easy Lasagna Roll-Ups’.

On page 5 is a recipe for a home-made Marinara Sauce… If you want to save time, feel free to use a store-bought sauce, but make sure you have plenty of it… This recipe is best when guests can help themselves to more sauce at the table.

@ KayL N Sure, some mey be time-intensive at the outset, But I find, being single, when I make my version of the vegan Lasagna, for example, I make a HUGE batch of it, then cut it into meal-size portions and freeze them, so I actually end up with another 6 or 7 pre-made, easy to heat up later meals...so in the end, it comes out a wash.

You lost me at the word "time-intensive". Time is an even more precious commodity than money!

Thanks for sharing.

I feel sorry for those poor animals having to endure all that nonsense so their dumb humans can show…

I would take this issue more seriously (i.e. on its own merits), if the headline wasn't deliberately…

So sad to know another of our beautiful species may bite the dust...because of man! Because of chem…
