{Vegan} Crock Pot Lasagna

Ingredients:

  • 1 container soft (silken) tofu 
  • 1 container firm or extra firm tofu 
  • 1/4 cup soy milk 
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder 
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice 
  • 3 tbsp fresh basil, chopped 
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • 2 10 ounce packages frozen spinach, thawed and patted dry 
  • 4 cups tomato sauce 
  • 1 10-ounce box lasagna noodles

Preparation:

  1. In a food processor or blender, combine the silken tofu, firm or extra-firm tofu, soy milk, garlic powder, lemon juice, basil, and salt and process until smooth.
  2. Add the spinach to this mixture. 
  3. Place about a cup of the tomato sauce in the bottom of the crock pot or slow cooker. 
  4. Then place 1/3 of the noodles on top of the sauce, and 1/3 of the tofu and spinach mixture on top of the noodles. 
  5. Repeat these layers, being sure to end with sauce on top. 
  6. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, or until noodles are soft. 

Makes 6 servings of lasagna.

    Hey, does this process make it so that the noodles absorb some of the sauce? I don't have a crockpot, so can't give it a try... but sounds easy and good.

      Snakewitch, crockpots are so handy to use for a working person. If you work days, it is so nice to put supper on in the crockpot before work in the morning and have it done when you get home at night. If you decide to purchase one, choose one with the removable inner pot. This is so handy for washing and serving.

        Well, it may be a bit of a challenge to look for one here as Colombians don't typically use them here. They're big on steamcookers, though, because they consume lots of grains like beans and peas. If I do find one, I will surely strongly consider purchasing it, though, as it would be nice to have that option.

      It's great. My belief is that tofu works with any sauce.

    Vote no 3. Yes, it sounds good, and I imagine tofu works well in a lasagne. You may be interested in my latest article, The Alpha and The Omega, for some nutritional advice. If you like it, please vote!

      Oh, tofu works just great in any italian sauce or with chili, too. It's so versatile, I would go so far as to say that it's wonderful with any sauce. I especially recommend buying the extra firm tofu and chopping it small - gives the impression that you have the texture of meat or cheese without the flavour, which is what I look for.
