Regular lasagna made can be made even tastier, in my opinion, by layering in some roasted veggies. Practically any vegetable tastes better roasted, so I just pick whatever looks good at the supermarket. In this case I used two zucchini, three small carrots, an eggplant, and a red onion, I made the tofu ricotta from Veganomicon and used some marinara that Tony made.
A veggie layer...
The finished product, topped with some vegan cheese shreds and quick homemade vegan parmesan...
So, that's week 2 of Vegan MoFo! For me, anyway -- those of you who are blogging on weekends have my respect, but I can't seem to do it. This weekend we're going to New Jersey to visit friends and Tony is taking me on an actual date (our first in over a year, whoa!) Do you have any fun plans this weekend? Have a good one!
