Ingredients

tofu & veg layers

  • 1 x 350 g/12 oz brick of firm tofu
  • 1 C finely chopped green bell pepper (about 1 pepper)
  • 1/2 C thinly sliced leek (about 1/2 a bulb)
  • 1/4 C finely chopped green onion (about 2 onions)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp kala namak / black salt (optional)

hollandaise sauce

  • 2 C unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1/4 C vegan butter
  • 1 tbsp tapioca flour
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp ground mustard powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 C mozzarella-style vegan cheese shreds
  • 1/2 tsp kala namak / black salt (optional)

additional layer ingredients:

  • 2 vegan sausages (about 1 heaping cup crumbled)
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 C mozzarella-style vegan cheese shreds
  • 1/2 C packed baby spinach
  • 1/2 C red salsa
  • 280 g /10 oz brown rice lasagna (12 pack)

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 425°F
  2. Drain tofu from the packaging water and squeeze excess water from the brick using a tea towel or paper towels. Crumble into a bowl and combine with the remaining tofu & veg ingredients and set aside.
  3. Crumble the vegan sausage and brown in a pan over medium-high heat with vegetable oil for 3 to 4 minutes. Then add maple syrup, toss to coat the sausage crumble and turn off heat.
  4. Combine the ingredients for the hollandaise sauce except for the cheese shreds and kala namak together in a saucepan and whisk over medium heat for about 6 to 7 minutes until foamy and bubbling. Then stir in 1 cup of cheese shreds and whisk for another 2 minutes until melted. Then off the heat whisk in kala namak until combined.
  5. Use a 1/2 cup of hollandaise sauce to coat the bottom of an 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" (or 8" x 8" or 9" x 9") glass baking dish.
  6. You’ll need to break the lasagna noodles to fit in the dish, but you’ll end up using all the pieces. You’ll just layer broken pieces to make a few rows of noodles – which won’t make a difference once it’s baked. First, layer 4 rows of noodles across slightly overlapping. Then add 1/2 the tofu mixture, then another 1/2 cup of hollandaise sauce. Layer 4 more rows of noodles across in the opposite direction of the first layer. Then layer all the sausage evenly on top and pour another 1/2 cup of hollandaise sauce on top ensuring to get some out to the edges.
  7. Then layer a 1/2 cup of baby spinach and another layer of noodles in the opposite direction of the last layer. At this point gently press the whole thing with the palms of your hands into the baking dish just to compress it a bit. Then add the remaining tofu mixture and pour another 1/2 cup of hollandaise sauce over it. Add one last noodle layer in the opposite direction of the last layer. Here you will need to use pieces of the broken noodles to complete the layer. Then sprinkle a 1/2 cup of cheese shreds evenly on top and drizzle the remaining hollandaise sauce (about 1/4 cup) on top.
  8. Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes.
  9. Remove foil. Top with spoonfuls of salsa and spread it around the top out to the edges. Top with another 1/2 cup of cheese shreds. Bake another 15 minutes or until the top is lightly browned, the cheese is melted, and the inside is bubbling.

  10. Let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes before cutting which will help keep the layers in tact. Then to serve slice into squares using a sharp knife and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

In case you didn't know, I always use quick cooking lasagna... no pre-cooking required!

    Think you could assemble this dish in advance and freeze it? That way all you had to do was pull it out and cook it when ready to eat?

    • Lauren Toyota 2 years ago

      not sure how the tofu would stand up?! BUT I’m going to guess yes. However I can’t be responsible for the results 😉 give it a try.

    What brand of vegan sausage do you use/recommend?

  • Jenn 2 years ago

    Can’t wait to make this!! What vegan cheese shreds do you use? There are some I’ve tried and hated…would love your opinion ☺

  • Lindsay 2 years ago

    I made this but instead of doing the pre-made sausage, used beyond beef crumbles seasoned with sage, fennel, thyme, garlic, red pepper flakes, and maple syrup. It was amazing! Thank you for such a great recipe!

    Lovely recipe, carnivore approved! After making the lasagna, which the carnivore family absolutely loved (I’m the only veg in the family), I kept making the scrambled tofu and hollandaise for vegan "benedicts". My boyfriend finds your hollandaise sauce better tasting than the original. Thanks for sharing your tasty creative recipes and keep up the great work! Much love

    Great job! Love your newsletters. Glad you made a video of this recipe. Can’t wait to try it!

    Yeah, what the f*ck, lauren. This is so damn good. I used soyrizo instead of sausage and it turned out beautifully. Omni family approved.

  • Taylor McAneney 1 year ago

    Looks amazing! Can’t wait to try this. If you use regular lasagna noodles instead of brown rice do you think you need to cook them first? Thanks!

    Do you think you could sub the Mozza recipe from your cookbook? I can’t stomach storebought vegan cheeses.
