Vegan Lasagna

I made Vegan Lasagna for the first time tonight and oh my goodness it was incredible! I got the recipe from a free Whole Foods app on the iPhone, it’s delicious it tastes just like “the real thing”!

Vegan Lasagna
From Whole Foods iPhone App

Cooking spray
1 (14 oz) package of firm tofu, drained
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon chopped garlic (I used more)
Salt and pepper to taste
2 (25 oz) jars of vegan marinara sauce
3 bell peppers any colors, cored, seeded and chopped
12 no-boil dried lasagna noodles

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish

Wrap tofu in paper towels (or clean dish towels) and gently press out as much water as possible.
Transfer tofu to a large mixing bowl and add yeast, garlic, salt and pepper and mash with a fork. Set tofu mixture aside.

Put marinara sauce in a medium pot and bring to a simmer, add chopped peppers and continue to simmer for about 10 min.

Spoon enough marinara into bottom of baking dish to cover the bottom, and arrange 4 noodles on top. Spread 1/3 of the tofu mixture over the top of the noodles then spoon more sauce over the tofu. Repeat the process 2 more times, ending with the sauce.

Cover with foil and bake until noodles are tender, 45-60 min. Set aside and let rest for 10 min before serving.
