As I told you on my previous post, I found a lasagna soup recipe I wanted to try, so I made a vegan and healthier version inspired by Laura in the kitchen's recipe. I love her channel so much, even though it's not vegan and as healthy as our blog is, but her recipes are amazing and so inspiring.
This is a quick and easy way to make lasagna and it's perfect for those busy days when you're craving a plant based lasagna, but you only have 30 minutes to make it. You can make a vegan and healthy version of any recipe you love, it can be hard at the beginning, but after a while, it's quite simple.
Summer is coming, so I'm making the last soups of the season because eating soup in the hot summer of Spain can be a challenge. Good bye soups and stews, hello smoothies and salads!
- If you prefer to use dried lentils, cook them according to package directions. I would add about ⅓ to ½ cup (65 to 100 g) and you'll probably need to add more broth or water.
- Feel free to add fresh tomatoes or tomato sauce instead of the canned tomatoes. I would add the same amount (28 oz or 800 g).
- If you prefer a gluten-free recipe, use gf lasagna noodles or gf pasta of your choice.
- Add your favorite veggies, herbs and spices.
- This recipe is oil-free, but you can add any non refined oil or any healthy fat you want.
- Add more or less broth or water, depending on the consistency you're looking for (a soup, a stew or something in between).
