Vegan Lasagna Recipe with Basil Almond Ricotta


While I’m not a 100 percent vegan, plant-based dishes are my favorite. They spark my creativity and I just love the colors you can put in these dishes. While this isn’t the first vegan lasagna I made, it is definitely the best one so far. Even if you are a meat eater, you’ll love this recipe, I’m sure of that.

Vegan Lasagna Recipe Instructions


  1. Heat cooking oil in a pot or large skillet over medium heat. Sauté onions for 2-3 minutes. Then add garlic and cook 5 minutes more. Stir regularly
  2. Add carrot, eggplant, and zucchini. Stir well and cook for 5 minutes more. Stir regularly.
  3. Add tomatoes, water, sea salt, rosemary, oregano, and black pepper. Stir well, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the tomatoes fall apart and start to form a sauce. Stir regularly and add more water if needed. Last 5 minutes, add kale and cook until wilted.DSCF2225-1

  5. Preheat oven to 375°F or 190°C.
  6. When the veggie sauce is ready, layer 1/3 of it on the bottom of an oven-safe dish, then add a pasta layer, followed by ⅓ of the cashew cheese. Repeat layering and finish with panko breadcrumbs.DSCF2234-1
    7. Cook in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until noodles are soft and ricotta cheese-panko layer has browned. If not browned enough, grill for the last few minutes.
