Easy Vegan lasagna

easy vegan lasagna

You guys, it doesn’t get easier than this.

Who doesn’t love lasagna? Lasagna is such a festive dish to me, perfect for family gatherings, holiday meals, lazy Sunday lunches and so on. My mom used to make it during the holidays, when “pasta al forno” (baked pasta) is always a pleasurable main dish, hearty, yummy, and whenever it was brought to the table you could hear many “ohhh!” “ahhh!” from everyone.
Traditionally, this type of tomato-sauce based lasagna wasn’t a meat-less version, but so many versions exist even in the Italian cuisine! For example, zucchini lasagna, or mushroom lasagna are implicity meat-less. In that case you can just sub the cream/cheese sauce with its Vegan twin.
Anyway, back to this easy vegan lasagna: what makes it easy is a short and sweet list of ingredients that is so quick to assemble!

So for my lasagna, you only need to assemble a few simple ingredients (see notes for substitutions)  while your oven is preheating, set the timer, and there you go! Enjoy the rest of your day knowing that the yummiest Vegan lasagna is cooking for you.

Enough talking, let’s get to the point, shall we? :-)

Instructions
  1. Pre-heat your oven at 210°C.
  2. Cook your tomato sauce in a pot adding the crushed garlic, the herbs and spices of your choice (either dried or fresh) and salt and pepper. When it comes to herbs I used oregano, and for spices I add a pinch of paprika. But feel free to use what you like! Set aside to cool.
  3. In a large oven proof dish, add enough tomato sauce to cover the bottom. Add enough lasagne noodles to cover the tomato sauce (break some apart if needed). Finally add a layer of soy cream (go well into the corners of the dish), sprinkle some nutritional yeast.
  4. Repeat the previous step until the dish is 3/4 full. The sauce will bubble while cooking so leave some space on top.
  5. Cook at 210°C for about 40/45 minutes depending on your oven, until the top starts to brown. Bonus tip: let it cool down for 10 minutes in order to be able to cut perfect slices like you see in these pictures, otherwise it will just be a warm blob onto the plate (still yummy but less appealing to the eye and possibly lava-like hot!)
Recipe Notes
  • I'm using a wonderful veggie mince by Sojasun, but if you don't want to use a prepackaged ingredient or you don't find/have one at hand, there's plenty of ways to substitute it:
    - lentils are the perfect substitute for every "minced meat" need - try them for your Vegan bolognese sauce and you won't believe how incredibly good they are;
    - crumbled tofu makes for a very good substitute, full of protein, too;
    - finely chopped mushrooms have the perfect consistency and a great taste obviously;
    - nuts, especially crushed whole nuts add flavor and consistency to every bite.

    Yum! I JUST made lasagna last night. But mine was filled with unhealthy meat and cheese. This sounds awesome, and much more on the healthier side. Pinning it to try with my family.

    This looks so good! I’m going to have to try this one. :) I wonder if Tempeh would be a good substitute…

      Hi Christine Anne, I’m sure tempeh would make a great substitute! I haven’t personally tried it in this recipe, but I guess that if you chop it finely it will deliver both taste & texture. Let me know how it goes if you try it :-)

    This looks amazing. I have a vegan friend and she is great about always bringing her own meals to parties but it would be fun to surprise her one of these days and whip this up.
