Gluten-free Vegan Lasagna recipes

"My diet is 100% natural. I am a vegeterian and I follow a diet which is enriched with Ayurvedic herbs and spices. My favorite recipe by far is Gluten-free Vegan Lasagna.I learned this recipe from and it is very tasty.

This recipe takes a vegan twist on lasagna where zucchini and eggplant ribbons replace pasta, lentils and tomatoes replace ground meat, and a nutty pesto makes it golden and rich. The hearty spices give this dish an earthiness and warmth that makes for a comforting meal.

½ cup lentils (soaked overnight)1 can of tomato sauce2 T finely chopped shallots½ T crushed garlic8 to 10 big Basil leavesSalt to taste preferably Himalayan salt¼ t ajwain seeds1 T ghee2 medium-sized zucchini1 medium-sized eggplant1 cup spinach cilantro pestoFreshly ground black pepper½ cup of ricotta cheese¼ cup of crumbled fresh paneer

Thank you for sharing this. Would love it if you could also add it to the Vegan thread. I find so many recipes on FB and usually cut and paste This one looks yummy.

I'm a bit lazy these days and do a lot of short cuts but I love to see the more elaborate ones.

Have you checked out the Maplewood Bakery  Yellow Rose Vegan Bakery and Cafe? Not sure if it checks all of your criteria.

oh oh from the heading, I thought the thread was asking for a recipe, and was going to post a coeliac-friendly vegan lasagna very similar to this one. 

It’s also worth finding the vegan versions of the Greek pasticcio, very yummy. 

I would just like to say that calling this "lasagna" is an affront. How about casserole?

I grew up helping make the lasagna. My Sicilian Grandpa used to take me to non Italian neighbors to show them the basics. 

It became easy to make it vegetarian by eliminating the meat or replacing it with plant-based meats. The new Vegan cheese products are getting better and as everything can get tweaked with an awesome sauce, it can work. With your passion for cooking, I'm willing to bet you could come up with something worthy of the "lasagna" title. I'll bet a splash of red wine in the sauce and some roasted garlic could go a long way.

I actually grew up with meatless lasagna and I don't care for the meat version.

It's just that this dish bears zero resemblance to lasagna.

It's cultural appropriation I tells ya!
