Lasagna is a simple dish that you can make for family meals or dinner parties. This dish is great if you want to meal prep ahead of time for the week ahead. You don’t need to be vegan to love vegan lasagna. Read on to learn some wonderful lasagna recipes.

1. Vegan Lasagna With Tempeh

Vegan Lasagna With Tempeh

The key to any great lasagna is plenty of delicious layers that play against each other to provide a delightful flavor. This recipe features layers of tofu ricotta, tempeh, noodles, spinach, and vegan mozzarella cheese.

Tofu as a base for the ricotta is fantastic because it absorbs the other flavors well while providing a creamy texture. Basil and lemon provide the ricotta with a refreshing lift. These fresh flavors beautifully complement the depth of tempeh and the earthiness of the spinach.

2. Vegan Lasagna with Tofu Ricotta

This beautifully orchestrated lasagna includes layers such as zucchini, mushrooms, spinach, and tofu ricotta. The ricotta is made using tofu, soy milk, lemon juice, basil, and salt. The result is a perfectly textured, creamy sauce.

This lasagna is best served for a cozy family meal on a cold day, along with some salad and vegan garlic bread.

If you want to make this dish in advance so that you can eat it later, you can freeze it easily. A frozen lasagna can last for about two or three months after freezing. However, before heating this dish, you will need to thaw it for at least a day if you want the best result.

3. Creamy Vegan Mushroom Lasagna

This dish is an example of white lasagna. The absence of a tomato sauce allows mushrooms, spinach, and garlic to be the star of the dish as they play with a creamy vegan sauce. The key to the flavor of this dish is the marination of the mushrooms in garlic, balsamic vinegar, and soy marinate.

Those mushrooms blend nicely with the garlic white sauce and the layers of spinach and tofu ricotta. This lighter take on lasagna is perfect for a spring or summer dinner. If you want a nut-free version of this dish, this recipe gives instructions on how you can make a creamy garlic sauce without cashews.

Choose this dish when you are craving the comfort of lasagna but you want a different flavor profile.

4. Vegan Spinach Mushroom Lasagna

Spinach and mushrooms are a classic combination for a reason. The mushrooms bring earthiness, while the spinach provides some tanginess and brightness. Not to mention, these vegetables provide plenty of good vitamins and minerals. While this recipe uses jarred marinara sauce, you can also use a homemade version.

Vegan ricotta provides a creamy counterbalance to the sharper flavors of the vegetables and tomato sauce. This cheese is made from tofu, raw cashews, non-dairy yogurt, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, basil, and seasoning.

5. Vegan Wild Mushroom Lasagna

This recipe is excellent for those who want a soy-free version of vegan lasagna.

6. Gluten-free Vegan Mushroom Lasagna

Choose this recipe when you need something simple and easy to make that still packs a lot of punch in terms of taste and nutrition. This lasagna pairs very well with some gluten-free garlic bread and a salad.

7. Vegan Zucchini Lasagna

While some noodles can be a delicious participant in a lasagna, sometimes it can be fun to let something else play the role of the pasta. Zucchini is perfect when it comes to a low-carb, gluten-free version of a lasagna noodle.

The other components of this lasagna are largely similar to other lasagnas. All you need for this recipe is some tomato sauce, vegan ricotta, and vegan shredded cheese. The recipe also calls for Italian seasoning.

The key to this dish is preparing the zucchini so that it is not watery. Accomplish this by salting and grilling the strips before layering them into the lasagna.

8. Vegan Ratatouille Lasagna

Lasagna is delicious, and so is ratatouille. So, why not combine those delicious dishes into one. Eggplant, zucchini, and peppers come together to make the ratatouille portion of this dish. Meanwhile, the creamy component of the lasagna is made with vegan butter, flour, cashew milk, nutmeg, and vegan mozzarella.

This recipe is a lovely choice if you want an especially robust version of vegan lasagna that contains plenty of vegetables. As a result of the heartiness of this dish, it is particularly well-suited as a dish that you can make ahead for lunches. This dish can be stored in the fridge for three to four days.

9. Lentil and Eggplant Lasagna

This lasagna is a delicious and hearty dish perfect for cool weather. You may especially want to make it if you do not have a lot of time for cooking.
