Vegetarian Spinach Lasagna Recipe

Here’s a great variation of a vegetarian lasagna, but with tofu to boost the protein content.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz. egg-free lasagna noodles
  • 1 cup frozen spinach
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 cup tomato sauce, low sodium
  • 1/4 tsp. dried basil
  • 3 1/2 oz. soft tofu
  • 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 oz. vegetarian cheese (soy or rice cheese)

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook wide lasagna noodles according to package directions, omitting salt; drain and set aside. Place cooked noodles in a single layer on waxed paper and cut them in half; reserve. Coat a small loaf pan lightly with cooking spray. In a microwave-safe dish, thaw spinach and press water out. Drain tofu and in a small bowl, coarsely mash and combine with spinach; reserve. Heat oil in a small nonstick saucepan over low-medium heat and sauté garlic briefly, about 1 minute. Add tomato sauce and basil, lower heat and simmer uncovered for about 2-3 minutes. To assemble lasagna: spread 2-3 teaspoons of tomato sauce evenly on bottom of a small loaf pan. Layer in the following order: half a noodle, tofu mixture, vegetarian cheese, and tomato sauce. Repeat layering with remaining ingredients, ending with the remaining sauce. Cover with foil and bake 10-15 minutes. Uncover, bake an additional 4-6 minutes or until bubbly. Let stand 5 minutes and serve.
