Low Fat, Vegan Lasagna Recipe

Who doesn’t love lasagna?

I know I do!

Back in the day, I used to make lasagna with loads of oil – to make a fake cheeze, to fry the veggies before putting it into the sauce. Or, when I was a vegetarian, with mountains of cheese. And I wondered why I always felt like a train hit me after eating that stuff. Oh boy….

Nowadays, things look quite different with this low fat, vegan lasagna!

I stuff as many veggies as I can into the lasagna. I try to use whole wheat lasagna noodles. And the cheeze on top? Low fat! So, indeed, this yummy lasagna is actually healthy!

Ingredients:

For the lasagna:

  • whole wheat lasagna noodles
  • 1 (small) can of crushed tomatoes / tomato sauce
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 2 medium cloves of garlic
  • 1 red pepper
  • half of a medium zucchini
  • about half a pound of mushrooms
  • 1/2 head of broccoli
  • corn
  • salt & pepper
  • dried oregano
  • herb mix
  • veggie stock
  • water

 For the cheeze:

  • 125g of (smoked) tofu
  • 1-2 tsp of mustard
  • 1-2 tbsp of nutritional yeast
  • water
  • salt & pepper

Directions

  1. Cut up all the veggies (rather small).
  2. Start with the onion and garlic. Heat up a pot. When it’s hot, add the onion and garlic and “dry fry” them for a minute, then add veggie broth and let that simmer until translucent.
  3. Add the mushrooms and let them “sweat” a little.
  4. Then add all the other veggies to the mix and stirfry them for a couple of minutes.
  5. Add the crushed tomatoes and some tomato sauce.
  6. Add oregano and any herbs you like to the mix. I used some frozen herb mix.
  7. In a pan, coat the bottom with a little bit of water and add the first layer of pasta.
  8. Layer the pasta and the sauce. I trust that you know how to layer a lasagna 😉
  9. As the last layer, use the sauce.
  10. Then add the cheeze and sprinkle some oregano on top.
  11. Preheat the oven to about 200°C/390°F.
  12. Cook the lasagna for about 25-35 minutes, depending on your oven.

For the cheeze:

  1. In a tall bowl, add all the ingredients except for the water. Add a little water at a time.
  2. Blend with a handheld blender until smooth.
