Today’s recipe is one of my favorite recipes, lasagna or vegan lasagna.
This delicious Italian dish is for sure one of the wells known in the world and has many variants according to country. Always one of my favorites, besides its taste, the color of ingredients and condiments used for the sauce, is one the kind of recipe that you instantly fell in love with it because its smell is getting keen on your cooking place.
What ingredients can I use on vegan lasagna? I want to tell you that, on this occasion, I selected seasonal vegetables in this area in Mexico. Bell pepper, carrots, celery, spinach, mushrooms, zucchini, and green olives.
I do not recommend using pre-cooked vegetables, because when it’s time to cook our lasagna consistency may result isn’t so pleasant. I suggest cutting vegetables into strips, the more finely we cut them, at the time of baking the lasagna they will not be raw.
To serve our vegan lasagna, I like to accompany a simple salad, using only lettuce, tomatoes, and dressing with vinaigrette or olive oil. Also, we can not forget the baguette. (Ask in the bakery if your bread is vegan, depending on the recipe this can contain eggs or butter, but is not a rule.)
Time: 90 minutes
One red bell pepper
One yellow bell pepper
250gr green olives
Lasagna pasta strips (dairy-free)
Vegan almond cheese
Time to cook for about an hour.Six cooked tomatoes
Two garlic cloves
250gr tomato puré
Pinch of oregano
Three bay leaves
Two basil leaves
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 liter of water
1 tbsp of sugar
Put to liquify on 1/2 liters of water cooked tomatoes, chopped onion, and garlic cloves. Later add olive oil in a hot pot and pour the liquefied tomatoes.
While simmering the above, integrate the tomato puree and the rest of the ½ liter of water that we had reserved.
Finally, mix all ingredients with condiments, salt, and pepper to taste.
Leave it to boil on low heat, always moving to avoid burning.
Before assembling your vegan lasagna, take care of the next:
a) The temperature of the oven and the duration will depend on the indications of the pasta manufacturer.
b) In the mold that you will use to bake the lasagna, form layers of the following sauce, vegetables, and almond cheese, you can form 3 to 4 layers as you prefer.
To facilitate the cooking process of the ingredients, you should cut them finely, mainly the carrot. Incorporate the elements one by one as you arm each layer of the vegan lasagna, remember that after each one add a few spoonfuls of sauce that cover the pasta well, well until you reach the end of our container.
Before putting it in the oven, remember to cover your container with some lid or aluminum foil. (Not recommended because of its level of chemicals and because it is not biodegradable.)
Finally, serve with a salad and baguette.
