Recipe by: Susan Voisin
Yield: 8 servings
1/2 lb Fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 tbsp water
2 26-oz jars of spaghetti sauce (or your favorite sauce)
10 oz Frozen chopped spinach, thawed and liquid squeezed out
1 lb Tofu (firm, reduced-fat recommended–not silken!)
1 ts Salt (optional)
2 tb Nutritional yeast
1 1/2 ts Oregano
1/2 ts Garlic powder
1 ts Basil
1/2 ts Rosemary, crushed
1/8 ts Cayenne pepper
9 Lasagna noodles (regular lasagna noodles, not “no-boil” ones)
Soy Parmesan (optional)
Sauté the mushrooms over medium heat in the 2 tbsp. water until tender; cover between stirring to keep them from drying out. Remove from heat and add the spaghetti sauce.
Place the tofu and thawed spinach in the food processor and process briefly. Add the remaining ingredients–except the noodles and soy parmesan–to the processor and blend until smooth. (You may do this without a food processor by using a potato masher on the tofu.)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Spread half of the sauce in the bottom of a 9×12-inch pan. Place a layer of noodles over the sauce, using three dry noodles and leaving a little space in between them. Spread half of the tofu mixture on the noodles. Cover with another layer of 3 noodles and then spread the remaining tofu mixture over them. Top with a final layer of noodles, and pour the remaining sauce over this. Cover the dish tightly with foil, and bake for 30 minutes. Then, remove the foil and bake for another 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with soy parmesan if you want. The lasagna will cut better if you allow it to cool for 15 minutes before serving.
