NEXT LEVEL SPINACH LASAGNA 🚀
Get ready to try the most delicious lasagna I ever made! It’s such an easy dish to feed a lot of people without needing to rush or spend hours in the kitchen 😊
What you need to prep other than
Lasagna Sheets & Baking Dish
…for the sauce:
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
~400g Vegan Mince or Tofu (pressed & crumbled)
1 Large Onion, diced
2 Carrots, chopped
1 Bell Pepper, chopped
250g Mushrooms, finely chopped
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
2 Cans of Chopped Tomatoes (400ml)
Splash of Red Wine (optional but gives a great flavor, and I actually used an alcohol free version)
Fresh or dried Basil
Salt & Pepper
👉🏼 Add olive oil to a large pot on medium heat. Add onions and fry them for 1 minute. Then place mince, carrots, garlic and bell pepper into the pot and fry for another 2-3 minutes – keep stirring so it doesn’t burn on the bottom. Season for the first time.
👉🏼 Pour in chopped tomatoes, stir, then add in mushrooms and combine well. Next, add chopped basil leaves or dried ones, as well as a good splash of wine. Let the sauce simmer for 15-20 minutes on low heat.
…for the creamy spinach:
400g Frozen Spinach
200ml Vegan Cooking Cream
3 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast (optional, but makes it creamier)
Salt & Pepper
👉🏼 Defrost spinach (either in the microwave or in a pot), drain to remove excess water – yes, it’s shrinking a lot haha… Place in a pot with cream, nutritional yeast & seasoning. Combine well and bring to a short simmer for 3-4 minutes, then turn down heat. If the cream is too thick, add a little bit of water.
Pre heat oven to 200C/380F.
👉🏼 Layer your lasagna. Start with a thin layer of sauce, then place sheets on top, add another sauce layer, sheets and then your first spinach layer. Continue until all sauce is gone. The last 2 layers should be sheets & spinach.
Now it’s time to bake the lasagna for about 45 minutes – you can also sprinkle some cheese on top before baking to make it fancy! Make sure the lasagna is all the way cooked and let it cool for 5 minutes before cutting because it’s hooot! 😅
Lots of love,
