Vegan & Gluten-Free
I absolutely love Homemade Lasagne how about you? We can be vegan and gluten free and make a delicious lasagna casserole!! This recipe is so good using a homemade sauce like the one used for this recipe or being more carefree and just buying a vegan marinara sauce.
I like to buy Le Veneziane oven ready gluten free lasagna sheets. They are found at the link I provided. But Barilla also has a very decent oven ready gluten free lasagna noodle! Using oven ready pasta makes it so easy to assemble and cook this fabulous tasting lasagna casserole.
I have also become very fond of using VioLife Vegan Cheeses. VioLife has quite an assortment and they are so good! I am using VioLife Vegan Mozzarella Shreds in this recipe. We are also making our own vegan ricotta cheese in this recipe!
The nutritional values for this recipe are made using a traditional vegan store brand marinara sauce. The sauce that is used for making this Homemade Lasagna you will find here. It is similar but uses onions, mushrooms and red lentils in the sauce. So you may want to check that recipe for a way to get more plant protein with red lentils into a spaghetti sauce.
Here are photos of what we used to make this recipe. Following the photos is the recipe for Homemade Lasagna Vegan & Gluten-Free. Enjoy
I hope you enjoyed seeing how a homemade lasagna vegan & gluten-free is done! It’s so yummy. Give it a try for a special Valentines dinner! Enjoy.
