Delicious Vegan Whole Wheat Lasagna with Mushrooms

5

by: Gourmandelle






This dish is one of my favorites so far. I didn't think it will be so good but trust me it's even better than the original meat lasagna. The wonderful thing about using mushrooms for lasagna is that mushrooms provide a richness and meaty texture that makes most people not miss the meat at all. I substituted the shredded cheese on top that is usually sprinkled over lasagna with a lovely flavorful tomato and basil sauce. The combination is awesome and you won't miss the cheesy texture. Of course, if you have some vegan cheese you can use it but unfortunately it can't be found here. You definitely must try this! You'll love it !
