Main Dishes

Vegan Spinach Lasagna

Cheesy Spinach And Artichoke Lasagna

Lasagna has been my favorite since childhood, so I often bake it in a vegan version when I have guests. And it doesn’t require something special! Just some spinach, vegan ricotta and pasta sauce make a nice warm lasagna!

This recipe is a plant-based twist on the traditional Italian lasagna. Other than vegan ricotta, you can use tofu combined with yeast for a creamy filling. Key ingredients of this recipe are lasagna noodles, spinach, tomatoes, garlic, vegetable broth, and seasoning that you prefer. With the use of tofu, you can make this recipe rich in protein, dairy-free, and vegan. For extra flavor, you can also add sautéed mushrooms or roasted red peppers to the filling.
