First, I made homemade sauce. This step can obviously be skipped but ...mmmm, do you really want to?

2 Tablespoons tomato paste
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tomato, chopped
1 teaspoon each fresh basil, oregano, and parsley, minced
1 pinch cayenne pepper
Sea salt and pepper to taste


TRIPLE THIS RECIPE

Mix tomato paste and water in a separate bowl and set aside. Heat oil in a saucepan and saute onions and garlic until soft.
Image

Add tomatoes and spices. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring regularly.

Image

Add tomato paste mixture and salt/pepper to taste. Cook for an additional 10 minutes.

Image

Put sauce in the blender and blend until smooth.

Image

Meanwhile, Cook Lasagna Noodles. Once cooked "al dente", drain and rinse with cool water. Immediately separate and place indidividually on wax paper or aluminum foil to avoid sticking.

Image

Mix Tofu Ricotta Following Recipe Below:

Filling:

1 to 2 pounds medium tofu, drained, but do not squeeze out the water. Put tofu in food processor or blender to mix. You want it about the consistency of cottage cheese so you may need to add some soy milk to thin.

Add the following:

soy milk (as needed--see above)
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried parsley
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
(or as much spices as you want--taste and decide) - Definitely Add Salt!

Image

Cook sausage crumbles. I added carrotts and zucchini, as well.

Image

Layer the lasagna, Cover and Cook for 40 minutes. Remove cover, return to oven and cook for 10 more minutes.

Image

I really wish I would have had some Follow YOur Heart Vegan Mozzarella Cheese to top it off but I didn't. Oh well.

I made this for thanksgiving, it was great, and is almost all gone. Probably cost about 12 bucks to make but there is so much of it, many meals. My mom even liked it. I used spike seasoning in the tofu ricatta along lots of rosemary and gernal "italian seasoning" blends found at my parent's house. The sauce was awesome, but I dont think I had enough. I'd use 1 and a half tomatoes, perhaps 2, and more tomato paste, along with more of the other ingredients. Yay for vegan lasagna, Yay for vegan Madre! :D

I wondered what you ended up making for T-day, CollegeB. Glad your mom liked it too. Mine is terrified of the mighty soy bean.

Love your new avatar photo, too!

Just tell her soy is in probably about everything else she eats. There is soy oil in so many quick foods. My mom bought some vanilla soy milk and didnt like it, she thought she could be allergic, but she liked my lasagna, and she eats plenty of other things which do contain soy. Too bad she didnt opt for a tofurky.

i tried to talk my mom into getting me and my brother a tofurky, and it didnt happen. I made pizza instead, and it was terrible. I have some extreme talent to mess up pizza.

You know, I've never understood the logic of a Tofurky...if one is ultimately against any form of animal product, why would one PRETEND to eat an animal in tofu form? It seems really backward to me. NO offense intended - this is something that always got me when I saw it and reading about it here, I just had to ask.

Oh dear child. Follow your heart Mozzarella is god's gift to Tiffaney. It's melts, it's the most cheese-like I've tasted and...yeah, that's about it. But I love it!

CollegeB - cool that you tried it! Glad you added more spice to the "ricotta"...mine was awfully bland! I tripled the sauce recipe and it was still too little...Next time.

Just wanted to revive this thread. I make this dish several times a year, mostly for holidays. The more I make it the better it gets. Play with the recipe some. Homemade sauce is excellent!


:D
