The Best Easy Vegan Lasagna

This is one those “there’s no way in hell that’s vegan” moments. THE MOST MOMENTOUS OF MOMENTS. It was a proud, proud moment when my carnivorous boyf and I first sank our teeth into this luscious lasagna. The truth is that I’ve been making a version of this delicacy for years, and if you’re a loooooong time Hummusapien reader, you remember. My Skinny Vegan Lasagna straight outta the Dark Ages, of course! Then there were the Summer Vegetable Lasagna Rolls. Now we’re back to the good ol’ casserole version. Many mouths have enjoyed (and that’s a vast understatement) this lasagna.

I use local Oasis roasted garlic hummus, Simple Truth organic tomato basil marinara (use a good marinara that you love), and 100% whole grain lasagna noodles, but there’s lots to play around with here. Sadly, this recipe will not work without tofu, hummus, and nutritional yeast. Vegan Creamy Ginger-Coconut Kale Zucchini Spaghetti. It’s the first Monday of the New Year!!

Anna’s Avocado & Lemon Zest Spaghetti - Love and Lemons

I thought now would be a good time to start making recipes from other peoples’ books… Last week, I briefly talked about Anna’s book, A Modern Way To Eat. While it’s been out for awhile now, it’s only recently been released in the US and I finally got my hands on a copy. What I love about it is that it’s more than just a book full of recipes (although there are over 200 of them!) … she offers tons of delicious ideas for how to mix flavors and textures together in creative but not-fussy ways. Last night, I was looking for something quick to make for dinner – the only requirement was that I had to have the ingredients already on hand. My favorite part about the recipe has to be her final instruction: “Scoop the pasta into bowls and eat on your lap.” Anna's Avocado & Lemon Zest Spaghetti Fill a big pan with boiling water and add a good pinch of salt.

I used watercress instead of parsley, and I tossed it in at the very end. Chaotic Chef Noodle Bowls. Sweet potato (vegan) alfredo. Less really is more… it’s a lesson I don’t think I’ll ever fully learn.

For example, I often get flustered about what to make to post here. I’ll change my mind on my way to the grocery store and then change it another few times on my way home. This is a ridiculous (& expensive) habit because I end up buying way too much so I have options on hand to suit my indecisiveness. (Although, it all does get eaten eventually). Every now and then I come up with something out of nothing, and those almost always end up being my favorite recipes. I knew cashew cream and pureed sweet potatoes would be a winning (and warming) combo, but I thought I’d take it a step further by roasting the veggies first.

Boring. Soy cream? Hazelnut tahini pasta. I keep a pretty full pantry (to say the least).

I love to have a variety of oils, vinegars, grains & nuts on hand… but every now and then “on hand” becomes completely out of hand. This little sauce came about one day when I was cleaning out my shelves and found five separate stashes of hazelnuts. Some were newly purchased, some were tucked waaay in the back. Also, back beyond my immediate reach was a still-pretty-new-yet-forgotten-about jar of tahini. I had pasta noodles to use up, but this would be great as a dressing drizzled over a farro salad, or over greens with roasted sweet potatoes. Bow Ties with Broccoli Pesto Recipe.
