Lasagne was one of my favourite meals growing up. Something I loved eating with my sister, who actually got me into it.
Once I went vegan I missed lasagne, so I had to veganise it.
How to veganise mince lasagne
Traditional lasagne consists of three main components: Tomato-ey mince, creamy white sauce, and lasagne sheets topped with cheese.
Veganised lasagne isn’t all too different, all you need to do is substitute the cheese for a vegan option and the sheets for an egg-free option.
What goes in vegan white sauce?
With our veganised version of white sauce for lasagne, it’s very much similar to béchamel; with cheese added to make it richer.
How is lasagne layered?
Start off with a layer of lasagne sheets, then tomato sauce filling, spread evenly along the oven dish’s base.
Next you add a thin layer of white sauce on top, with lasagne sheets laid out, followed by more filling, more sheets, then topped with cheese – Vegan cheeze in this case.
What does vegan lasagne pair well with?
When it comes to what to serve with lasagne, I’ve found the simpler the choices the better.
Some options include roasted veggies, potatoes, chips or salad.
I personally enjoy eating a side salad like our avocado salad alongside it, it’s a perfect balance of savoury with the freshness of the salad.
Do you put lasagne sheets in raw?
Many people tend to put the sheets in raw, but for the absolute best results you should take the extra time to pre-boil them.
You’d only need to cook them for 5-10 minutes in salted boiling water.
How to soften lasagne sheets without them sticking together
To boil numerous lasagne sheets at once, add olive oil to the pasta water, which will provide extra lubrication between them. Keep stirring the pasta so they don’t settle and end up sticking together.
