Vegan vegetable lasagna without noodles fills you up with eggplant, zucchini, and spinach, not carbs!
It’s easy to make lasagna using just the vegetables themselves, very thinly sliced, to create the layers. Making it vegan and cheese-free is also not a difficult feat to accomplish using tofu and nutritional yeast.
This recipe is from Truly Healthy Vegan Cookbook, a book filled with easy recipes using recognizable ingredients by Dianne Wenz. This is what Dianne has to say about the lasagna:
“Lasagna has always been my favorite meal. This healthy vegetable version is made using eggplant and zucchini instead of noodles. Eggplant and zucchini tend to be very watery, so salting them is necessary to remove some of the moisture. Salting also softens the vegetables, helping them to cook quicker.
I’ve skipped the salting step in the past, only to find that my zucchini and eggplant were still firm and almost raw, despite being baked in the lasagna for half an hour.”
