Vegan Lasagna made with whole, simple and hearty ingredients. Lasagna is the ultimate home cooking. Who doesn’t love a thick piece of tasty, messy, perfectly layered and cheesy lasagna?!? Nobody, that’s who
We celebrated Christmas early this year and I delighted in a piece of this healthy, hearty Vegan Lasagna with my Christmas meal. … this year lasagna and perhaps next year Mac and Cheese ?!? So much for having to stick to one main dish at the centre of the table every darn year, lol!
This Vegan Lasagna utilizes my simple, 20 minute, Nut Free Cheese Sauce I shared previously today. Holy moly this soy totally free and dairy totally free sauce is good. And it’s especially delicious in this Vegan Lasagna. The water from the cheese evaporates when baking and becomes a scrumptious, melty, vegan tacky ricotta in the oven. When that happens, my family could not get over that this lasagna was completely dairy complimentary– love.
And after that let’s speak about the tomato sauce. This sauce is meaty, hearty and preferably simmered for a couple hours on the range to get those delicious and deep tomato flavours you only get from a gradually simmered sauce.
When the sauce has simmered it’s time to get layering. Layer the tomato vegan, sauce and pasta cheese until your Vegetable Lasagna is filled right to the top …
And bake until the lasagna is perfectly prepared on the within, the Vegan cheese melted and ricotta-y in the middle AND the top great and crispy … yum!
This Vegan Lasagna is definitively a weekend recipe, with the sluggish simmered sauce and the 45 minute lasagna baking time!
