Best veggie lasagne?

(25 Posts)

I want to make a vegetarian lasagne for a dinner party coming up, and I'm looking for ideas. Does anyone have any recommended recipes? I was thinking perhaps of pumpkin or mushroom, but any ideas welcome. Thanks!

Yes this one.

I made it for my parents once and they now make it ALL the time.

Mine is bloody lovely, if I may say so myself.

I roast chunks of red onion, red pepper and mushrooms.

Meanwhile, I fry finely chipped onions, red & green peppers, carrots (celery if I've got some) and garlic. Add herbs (parsley, thyme, oregano usually) & balsamic vinegar & a big glass of red wine. Add passata & being to boil then put the lid on & stick it in the oven to cook long and slow (about an hour).

Mix the roasted vege into the tomato mix and add Merchant Gourmet lentils (The tomatoey ones work really well, but puy nice too). Add a dollop of red pesto if got any

Proceed as usual with lasagne sheets and cheese sauce then a big later if grated parmesan on top.

I’ve never followed a recipe for something like this, I just make it up as I go

I love this one

I have an amazing one - squash, sage and hazelnut, white sauce with nutmeg.

(Not relevant but I find the comments absolutely hilarious the number of changes and substitutions people make. My favourite is the one who substitutes 450g of sautéed sausage meat for the hazelnuts as they need meat at every meal. That's a completely different recipe!!)

There's a lovely bbc good food one- fresh lasagne with pesto I think it's called.

Reallybadidea Sat 29-Feb-20 10:54:07

@Xiaoxiong Yes! And the ones where they change loads of the quantities and then say the recipe didn't work and give it 1 star grin

gruffalohuffalo Sat 29-Feb-20 14:02:54

Amazing, thanks all! I was looking at that Guardian one and wondering whether to make that.

I've also found a butternut squash and spinach one on Good Food that looks interesting.

That's hilarious about the substitutions!

What I found interesting is that a lot of the recipes use ricotta or similar rather than bechamel, as you'd use in a meat lasagne. Is that because it's too heavy?

Agree with pp that the ones with just white sauce (no tomato) are nicer. Somehow the veg stands out more. I've done one similar to the butternut squash & hazelnut one above but filling is...onion,sage, garlic, mushroom, squash cubes, pine nuts, tender stem broccoli & mozzarella. Loads of Béchamel sauce with double cream in, and cheese (& maybe breadcrumbs) when uncovered for last 10 mins.

Delia’s Roasted Mediterranean Veg Lasagne.

More cheesy than the picture makes it look.

MeanMrMustardSeed Sun 01-Mar-20 14:54:05

I came on to say Delia’s Mediterranean one too. Amazing!

I made this last week. The ragu works really well but I would do at least twice the amount of white sauce.

Don't forget that Parmesan is not veggie.

PaulinePetrovaPosey Sun 01-Mar-20 21:21:14

Luuuuuurve this one

I like a butternut squash, mushroom
and spinach lasagne.

coppersuits Mon 02-Mar-20 17:52:54

I like a 3 or 5 cheese & tomato lasagne - no veg, served with salad.

HollowTalk Mon 02-Mar-20 17:55:32

I came on to say Delia's, too. It's delicious. Her spinach and ricotta cannelloni is lovely, too.

Strawberrycreamsundae Mon 02-Mar-20 17:57:53

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s Mushroom and Kale lasagne is to die for, my go-to recipe always.

HollowTalk Mon 02-Mar-20 18:02:41

Actually it's the spinach and ricotta lasagne, not cannelloni, but Delia's got a cannelloni with pancakes instead, which sounds good.

BookMeOnTheSudExpress Mon 02-Mar-20 18:04:49

Spinach and mushroom. The spinach in with the bechamel, and a mushroom and garlic tomato sauce.

Babamamananarama Mon 02-Mar-20 18:05:30

The ottolenghi mushroom lasagne is absolutely bloody amazing.

HollowTalk Mon 02-Mar-20 18:19:36

The spicy one, @Babamamananarama?

Babamamananarama Mon 02-Mar-20 19:31:07

It's got a little kick, but you can adjust the chilli to not make it as spicy.
