Knock someone's socks off : Lasagna
Some may say that lasagna has to have four cheeses, some say it has to have only one. The main point is "lasagna is a cheesy, scrumptious dish".
That is, until you make it with no cheese. I have tried several different versions towards making the perfect vegan lasagna. But this one takes the cake, or should I say the noodles!
A simple lasagna with big taste. I roasted eggplant and zucchini and used those vegetables as a layer. I made a tofu "cheese" as part of the filling. I also used my basic tomato sauce.
For the "cheese" topping I used a product by Earth Island- Vegan Gourmet ( the same company that makes vegenaise) I can get two meals usually out of one block....
1 block of firm tofu
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 tsp oregano
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup water
Put everything in a food processor and blend until desired consistency.
