lasagne vegan

We’ve partnered with Hipster Food, one of our favorite vegan tastemakers, to celebrate the success of our tumblr so far! For the month of January, we’ll be posting original vegan recipes featuring WestSoy deliciousness!

Tofu Lasagne Rolls

Yields 4 servings

These lasagne rolls are a great way to make a “fancy”-looking dinner without it actually taking that much time or effort. Filled with a fresh Westsoy tofu ricotta and topped with a hearty tomato sauce, this is a flavorful meal that’s perfect for cold days this winter.

This makes enough for a square glass pan, if you’re going for a rectangular pan I’d double everything here. Serves 4.

Tofu Ricotta Ingredients

1 block firm Westsoy tofu

1 tbsp garlic powder

2 tsp onion powder

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tsp salt

few cracks of freshly ground pepper

(optional but highly recommended) handful fresh basil leaves, minced

Lasagne Ingredients

11 sheets lasagne

1 28oz. can crushed tomatoes

1 small onion, diced

2 medium cloves garlic, minced

2 handfuls button mushrooms, diced

2 heaping handfuls spinach, or destemmed & chopped kale

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp olive or coconut oil

salt & pepper

Instructions

1. Mash all of the tofu ricotta ingredients together with a fork, until it’s broken apart and the consistency of ricotta. Set aside.

2. Set your oven to 350°F. Put the lasagne into a pot of boiling water and let cook until tender, about 10-15 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, cut up your vegetables. Toss the onion, garlic, and mushrooms into a large hot pan with the oil. Let cook on high until the onions are caramelized, about 5-7 minutes. Stir every so often to prevent burning. 

4. Toss the greens, crushed tomato, and balsamic vinegar into the pan. Let cook on medium-low for another 10 minutes. At the last minute, add the salt & pepper to taste.

5. When everything’s prepped, pour a layer of sauce on the bottom of your baking pan. Take a cooked lasagne sheet and spread on the ricotta. Roll it up and place in the pan. Repeat until the pan is full. Pour the rest of the sauce on and put it in the oven for 30 minutes.

Serve with almond parmesan & fresh basil, and maybe some quickie garlic bread. Enjoy! 

Vegetarian (vegan optional) lasagne

600 grams of tofu
600 ml of tomato purée
vegetable oil
2 tablespoons of salt
4 cloves of garlic
1 medium-sized onion
2-3 tablespoons of ground paprika (sweet)
summer savory
oregano
thyme
nutmeg
rosemary to taste
300 grams of grated cheese (i used trappist/monastery style cheese -replace with non-dairy cheese if vegan)
1 box of lasagne pasta (12 sheets)

Optional:
béchamel sauce


Wash the tofu, slice it up and dry it with a clean kitchen towel or paper towels. Use your hands to crumble it into a bowl. Add spices (I didn’t specify how much but I suggest you make oregano and summer savory the ‘main theme’ and use everything else less generously). Mix well then add some oil to wet the mixture then leave it for at least 30 minutes.

Chop up the onion into small pieces and cook them on vegetable oil until they become ‘glassy’. Add the tofu mix and cook it unil brown on low-medium heat (that will take at least 30 minutes, be patient). When it’s almost done, chop up and add the garlic and the tomato purée, cook for a few more minutes then taste - add more spices if needed. Cook for another 10-15 minutes.

Get a (lasagne) pan, and layer sauce(s), cheese and pasta until you run out then bake at 180 Celsius degrees for about 40 minutes.

I love cooking but I’m not very good at writing down recipes (mostly because I hardly ever measure anything) so if you have any questions feel free to inbox me!
