My lasagna recipe


Posted by Evelyn , Mar 25,2002,11:16   Archive
In a small amount of olive oil, cook 1 can vegetarian burger(about 2 cups) with 1/2 large chopped onion and Italian seasoning to taste, in a frying pan.
In medium bowl pour 1 jar of prepared spaghetti sauce or equivalent amount of homemade sauce, 1 large can diced tomatoes, 1/4 cup dried parsley and 1/2 cup chopped olives of your choice. I use ripe green olives.
Blend one block tofu with small amount of soy milk, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder and 1/2 tsp. salt till smooth. Or crumble 1/2 block extra firm garlic/herb tofu into mixing bowl and add eggless salad mix and 4 Tbs. soy mayonnaise.

Pour 1/3 of the sauce mixture into baking dish. Put a layer of dry lasagna noodles in next. (I use whole wheat noodles, but either kind work equally well) put 1/2 tofu mixture over the noodles. Put 1/2 burger mixture in next. Continue to layer noodles and mixtures, ending with a layer of the spaghetti sauce mixture. Top with vegan Parmasan cheese if desired. If you need more liquid, mushroom soup may be added. I make my own mushroom soup.
Let sit till the liquid absorbs into the noodles...at least four hours, or overnight. Bake at 350 for an hour.

Thanks so very much for this recipe Evelyn - I know it must have taken time and energy to put this together for us and we appreciate it.

A couple of questions. I've never heard of eggless salad mix (sometimes items are slower to arrive in Canada!) I know what you mean by eggless (as in egg substitute), but what does the rest of the package contain? Is it on the shelves, in the refrigerator section or what?
Also if you do the first version with the tofu, soy milk, etc. - the tofu would still be extra firm?
Also I guess the secret is to let it stand overnight, as you said, to let the noodles absorb the liquid.
I'm looking forward tomaking it when I get the answers. Thanks.
June in Toronto

You're welcome for the recipe Sally and June. It doesn't maktter which texture of tofu you blend...I've used soft, regular, firm and extra firm. The eggless salad mix, is in a foil-like packette. I think it's a black packette. (At least my favorite kind) It's a packette of seasonings that help the tofu taste like egg salad.I'd give the brand that I use, but I don't know if that's allowed. I buy it at the co-op, but one grocery store close to home carries it also, and it doesn't cost as much there.
Hope that helps.

I've never seen that packette, but figure I can use my own seasonings (miso, salt, mustard, green onions) - I'd use that plus the egg and mayo replacer if I was going to make an egg salad sandwich. Thanks again Evelyn. June in Toronto

You're welcome, June, and I hope the lasagna turns out well for you by using your own seasonings. I don't think I've had a failure yet, and I have tried many different ways of making it.
Evelyn, who got Refresh PM last night for my dry eye problem, then forgot to use it till I woke up at 4:30 a.m. I used it then. My eye wasn't hurting when I got up this morning and my vision is clearer part of the time, but I think I need some different moisture drops, too.

Evelyn, I haven't tried the Lasagne recipe yet but will have to. I am mad at Nilda for even suggesting the cookbook. My wife is making the recipes all the time and I have put on about twenty pounds. She even has the pages folded onthe ones she wants to try that we haven't yet. One of them is the Lasagne so I am sure that I am in for a treat. I sold a little over fifty cook books myself and I have people coming back asking me for more so they must like the recipes....Alan

Hi Alan,
The lasagna recipe in the cookbook isn't mine. I didn't think anyone would be interested in it when the recipes were submitted. It hasn't put weight on for me, but then I measure everything to get the carbs right for my insulin dosage. That's great that you sold so many cookbooks. I'm still waiting to visit a friend, who is also deaf, (she has not one implant, but two) so I can give her the cookbook I got her for Christmas. I'm sure she'll like it, as she's a great cook.

Thanks Evelyn for taking the time to post your recipe. I've copied it off and when I go grocery shopping, I'll see if I can't find the right stuff (I know that I'll be making faces, though) and give it a try.
I'm so very glad that we adopted you.
A big hug to you,
Shirley

Hi Shirley,
Well, it's worth a try. You'd never believe how many changes I've made since my meat-eating days. I can thoroughly appreciate someone's hesitancy to try the non-dairy, meatless approach. (I'm glad I got adopted, too) :)
Evelyn, who slid homemade gluten off her plate, onto another man's plate when she was a teenager. Now, I think it's wonderful.
Hugs to you, too.
