Put this in the oven for 40 minutes and let the magic happen!

LunchBreakLive is on with the Silver-Chic Chef, Elysabeth Alfano. Mushroom-Spinach Lasagna is in the house as Elysabeth veganizes the age-old recipe! Skip the cruelty and still indulge in all of the amazing flavors of Italy. Watch as she cooks up a lasagna in minutes that’s sure to make your mouth water!

Make a variety of lasagnas with different ingredients to your liking!

Elysabeth shows us the base for her lasagna. Amazingly, she uses pine nuts and soy milk to make the ricotta. Elysabeth avoids extra oil by using mushroom broth to sauté! This recipe is also packed with mushrooms! Elysabeth explains she loves the savory umami flavor they bring to the dish. Elysabeth also shows us how to keep the lasagna from becoming watery. She uses a no-boil lasagna noodle which also soaks up some of the moisture too! Elysabeth layers her noodles, ricotta, mushrooms, and spinach. Then she adds the tomato sauce thoroughly. She adds her homemade mozzarella. Then she adds her second layer after pushing down the first one, repeating the layering process.

Wait a few minutes and try not to eat the whole dish! Yum!

After the lasagna is composed, Elysabeth puts it in the oven for 40 minutes at 375 degrees. Wait for it to cool off uncovered while you fight your overwhelming anticipation. Then dig in and enjoy! Feel free to alter the ingredients to your tastes. Elysabeth uses tempeh sometimes, and you can also throw in peppers or other vegetables to make it your own. Make a delicious lasagna at home to impress all of your friends with Elysabeth’s vegan lasagna recipe below!
