You know that dinner that you're always making, and everyone is always asking for the recipe but since you make it all the time you never write down what you throw into it? Well, this is one of those recipes... and it might just be the best one ever. 

Vegan lasagna and not a veggie in sight. If you want a veggie loaded lasagna, you can find one in my cookbook. This beauty, however, is classic lasagna at it's finest. The best vegan meat and cheese has to offer: The Beyond Burger and Miyoko's Fresh VeganMozz. Now, I know what you're thinking; those are both pretty expensive. Maybe, but we only use one burger patty and about one quarter to one half of the ball of mozzarella. You can't afford not to make this! 

I hope you enjoy this one as much as we do. Perhaps the greatest part is that you'll find minimal cleanup is needed and that this recipe is so incredibly simple. The perfect lasagna for those that who are new to cooking or new to veganism!

The vegan lasagna to rule them all. It’s simple, it’s quick, it’s incredibly easy. Best of all this lasagna is rich with the tastiest vegan hamburger and the creamiest vegan mozzarella. It really is amazing. *Suggestions to make this even meatier, creamier, and more below.

Yield: 6

Ingredients

  • 14 oz firm tofu, drained
  • ¾ cup unsweetened, plain soy milk or vegan milk of choice
  • ¼ cup large-flake nutritional yeast
  • ½ tbsp miso paste (I use red)
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 1 Beyond Meat Beyond Burger patty, defrosted if frozen
  • 1 15 ozcan of tomato sauce (or additional pasta sauce)
  • 12 pieces of no-boil lasagna noodles (make sure they don’t contain eggs!)
  • 1 24 oz jar of pasta sauce
  • ¼-½ of one 8 oz ball of Miyoko’s Creamery Fresh VeganMozz (or ½ cup vegan cheese of choice)
  • Sprinkle of Italian seasoning and vegan parmesan, optional

Cooking Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. In a medium mixing bowl, mash together the tofu through the oregano until the tofu resembles a ricotta appearance. Crumble up or mash the raw burger patty and stir it (as well as it’s juices) into the tofu mixture until well combined. Set aside.
  2. Evenly spread half the can of tomato sauce in a 9x13 inch baking pan. Arrange three of the noodles on top of the sauce ensuring they don’t overlap.
  3. Evenly spread ⅓ of the cheese mixture over the noodles and cover with ⅓ of the pasta sauce. Continue this again, this time pinching off half of the cheese you’ll use and spreading it evenly over the tofu mixture.
  4. Continue with another layer, but without the cheese. Finish with a layer of noodles covered with the remaining half of the tomato sauce. Top with remainder of cheese and sprinkle with Italian seasoning.
  5. Spray a sheet of aluminum foil with a nonstick cooking spray and cover lasagna. Bake for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake an additional 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to rest 5 minutes before slicing. Serve hot and topped with vegan parmesan if you like.
  6. * Beyond Meat and Miyoko’s can be prohibitively expensive, however, if that’s not an issue for you you can make it meatier, by using two burger patties! To make it creamier, use as much cheese as your heart desires. You can use boiled, regular lasagna noodles in place of the no-boil ones but decrease the milk to ½ cup.

I heard the states are having a snow storm?! Has that already passed? Life with an almost two month old really steals you sense of time!

No fresh snow up here in Alaska, unfortunately. Maybe it's a good thing though; we've been having bright and sunny, chilly days and Oliver still seems a wee bit too little to be taken out for a ski. He did ,however, have his first outdoor jaunt this week! Todd ran in a local footrace and we bought a used stroller in the library parking lot minutes before it started so I could have the little man with us. Oliver and I met up with a friend, whose husband was also running, and her little five month old cutie pie. We causally strolled over to our local coffee house/cafe to chat about how much our lives have changed. While there we ran into my BFF's mom who joined us for coffee. It was such a lovely, small-town day and a much needed escape from the house. 

Anyways, I thought this soup would hopefully warm you all up as it seems you might be bundled up inside as well. It's comfort food in a bowl, and so much easier and quicker than making actual lasagna. I honestly don't know if I'll ever make traditional lasagna again! Unless I have a bunch of almond pulp on hand because that stuff makes the best ricotta and you know I can't waste anything! I hope you enjoy this soup as much as we did.

Yield: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried TVP (textured vegetable protein)
  • 1 scant cup hot water
  • ½ tbsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp liquid smoke
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 medium red or green bell pepper, diced
  • 32 oz vegetable broth
  • 2 15 oz cans diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 cup frozen corn (optional)
  • 2 tsp dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • Dash of freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 oz (2 ½ cups) broken, dried lasagna noodles or pasta of choice
  • ½ cup vegan shredded mozzarella
  • 2 handfuls of fresh spinach, torn

Cooking Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, soak the TVP in the water, soy sauce, and liquid smoke; stirring to combine. Set aside until ready to use.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Saute the onions and garlic until softened and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add the bell pepper, saute an additional 3 minutes.
  3. Add the reconstituted TVP, broth, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and paste, corn, and seasonings. Stir well to combine and bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to a simmer. Stir in pasta and cover; cook about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. One pasta is al dente, remove from heat and stir in cheese and spinach; add additional liquid smoke to taste. Serve hot. The pasta will absorb more of the liquid as it sits so feel free to add additional water or broth if you like.
