My son came home for Christmas and announced that he was eating vegan. Vegan is strict vegetarian, eating no animal products. I hadbeen a vegetarian for many years, but I choose the ovo-lacto vegetarian because it was easier. Back in the’70-80’s the food choices where much more limited.

What to do? I was making lasagna for Christmas Dinner. I make a mean vegetarian lasagna with sausage on the side for the meat eaters in the family. I made a very good vegan lasagna.

I parboiled gluten free, rice noodles. These will not be as firm as regular lasagna noodles. Save the best ones for the top and be gentle with them.

I sauteed 1 chopped onion, 2 chopped garlic in EV olive oil. I added crumbled firm tofu and chopped spinach. I added a healthy dose of parsley, basil, oregano, salt, pepper

I used a good organic spaghetti sauce. And I grated vegan mozzarella “cheese”.

Then I layer the ingredients started with some sauce in the bottom of the pan, noodles, tofu mixture, sauce, “cheese” and repeated.

This was enough for a 9×9 square pan, which I baked at 350 degrees,┬ácovered 45 min and uncovered 20 minutes.

Yummy

Blessings, Mary Pat
