Vegan Lasagna Chunky Vegetable
Written by McDonald, T. | Date 8th of October 2021
Home-made lasagna is so much better than any other kind. In fact, this vegan lasagna was one of the first non meat dishes I ever tried and even then I thought it was better than its meat counterpart. It turns out, there are two different types of vegan lasagna: one with lentils and one with chunky vegetables. This recipe is for the chunky vegetables lasagna. I will lead you through the stages resulting in an amazing dinner that will impress the whole family.

Amazing! Although this does take some effort, it is very comforting on a cold day. It has a beautiful rich tomato sauce with firm but succulent vegetable pieces. This dish will keep in the fridge for a day or two. I have never, however, left it any longer than two day. Enjoy!
