Are you ready to have your mind blown?

This healthy version of lasagna will seriously be your new favorite easy dinner to make. Homemade vegan lasagna for the win! Growing up, my mom used the make the most amazing lasagna. It was easily one of the best things she made. 

I have to say, this vegan version tastes pretty damn close to my moms. 

This recipe is: 

✔️Vegan 

✔️WFPB

✔️Oil-free

✔️Free of refined sugars

✔️Gluten-free optional (just use GF lasagna noodles) 

I start off by adding tomato sauce to the bottom of the pan with a little bit of water. Then I line the whole wheat lasagna noodles on top! 

Dollop on the tofu ricotta and more sauce. 

Spread the ricotta. Keep layering like this and repeat until you run out of ricotta. 

Omg. Would you look at how beautiful this homemade vegan lasagna is when it comes out of the oven?! I topped mine with vegan parmesan cheese and it added the perfect texture on top.
