The beauty of this recipe is that you can truly fool your meat and cheese loving friends. I baked this lasagna once for a potluck and everyone devoured it, declaring it the best lasagna they had ever tasted. I only announced at the end of the evening that “no animals were harmed in the baking of this delicious lasagna!” Mangia!

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Use your food processor to finely chop the mushrooms. Place one tsp. of olive oil in a skillet on medium heat and cook the mushrooms for a few minutes until tender. Set aside.
  3. Chop the onions and garlic and cook on high for three minutes, then add the crushed tomatoes, and soy protein crumbles. Cook on low - medium heat while stirring for another five minutes.
  4. Rinse and chop the basil.
  5. In a large bowl, combine the tofu and tofu cream cheese with a potato masher. Add some of the chopped basil and pepper and mix.
  6. Grate the vegan mozzarella.
  7. Chop your red pepper and broccoli.
  8. Now it’s time to layer your lasagna – the best part if you ask me!
  9. Place oven ready lasagna noodles in a large pan first. Then add some sauce. Sprinkle with pepper, gomasio, and nutritional yeast flakes. Add the tofu/tofu cream cheese/basil mixture, then place more noodles on top. Throw in some more sauce, the mushrooms, a bit of the mozzarella, and some more noodles. Then add the rest of the tofu/tofu cream cheese/basil mixture, and place the broccoli and red peppers. A few more noodles, sauce, mozzarella, flax seeds and place some basil on the top. This is not a science. Have fun and mix it up!
  10. Bake for 40 minutes, and then let cool for 30 minutes before you cut yourself a piece.
