This sweet potato lasagna calls for lentils, carrots, tomato sauce, vegan cheese, and lasagna sheets. Uber simple! The best part is you can add any veggies you have or you fancy.

How To Make Sweet Potato Lasagna?

Easy peasy! Sautee your onions and garlic, add your veggies and cook until tender. Add your tomatoes and passata and cook for 15 minutes.

Vegan Lasagna Bechamel with Sweet Potato and Cauliflower

A quick and skinny Lasagna today. It was one of those Fridays a few weeks back, when the pantry and refrigerator were almost empty. No tomatoes, veggies or greens. I was tired if eating lentils/beans. I found a boiled sweet potato and some cauliflower and decided to try some bechamel with it. Simple flavors and delicious food.
Add more layers, add some marinara layers, cheese, greens and more to make it hearty.

For more Lasagna, Pasta options see the Collection here.

I am so bored of listening to audiobooks.. and now I will get a headache after pushing myself to write the post.. oh well. Here’s to better days!



Did you know that more Cows are harmed for Cheese than for Milk.
Americans consume almost twice as much cow’s milk as cheese than as fluid milk. It takes more than 10 pounds of fluid milk to get a pound of cheese. Fluid milk consumption is on a steady 40-year decline while cheese consumption continues to rise. C heese consumption has continued to increase since 2010 and was at its highest level in 2012. As exposed in the New York Times , the USDA has worked behind the scenes with companies to increase the cheese content of products and market new cheese-laden products. I n 2010, 326 pounds of cow’s milk was consumed as cheese per capita while only 196 pounds was consumed as fluid milk. To get a better idea about the numbers, see the article at Counting Animals with charts and graphs.

Steps:

Whisk the flour into melted oil.



Whisk in the almond milk, then add salt, pepper and nutmeg. Keep ready



Assemble the Lasagna. Layer Bechamel, lasagna sheets, sliced cauliflower. Sprinkle garlic powder and chili or black pepper.



Add a layer of Sweet potato slices(raw or roasted), sprinkle dried herbs of choice, salt, bechamel and lasagna sheets.



Top with bechamel, bread crumbs or cheese.



Bake for about an hour.



Serve.

Sweet Potato Lasagna

It’s time to start enjoying lasagna again with this delicious, clean, and healthy sweet potato lasagna!

Ingredients

  • 2 whole Medium Sweet Potatoes, Thinly Sliced
  • 2 cups Cottage Cheese
  • 1 whole Egg
  • ⅓ cups Finely Chopped Parsley
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1-½ pound Lean Ground Pork
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Pepper
  • ½ Yellow Onion, Diced
  • 8 Cremini Mushrooms, Sliced
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 2-½ cups Tomato Sauce Or Marinara
  • 8 ounces, weight Mozzarella

Preparation

Slice sweet potatoes very thin, approximately 1/8 to 1/16 inch. (You can either use a mandoline or a sharp knife.) The more uniform the better, so they cook evenly.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine cottage cheese with egg and and finely chopped parsley. Mix well and set aside.

Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Once hot, add lean ground pork, dried oregano, dried thyme, kosher salt, and ground black pepper. Cook until well-browned, which should take 6–8 minutes, stirring frequently.

Once meat is well-browned, remove from pan and set aside. Reserve about 1 tablespoon of the rendered fat from the pork. If you have more than that, you can discard the rest.

Add diced yellow onion and cook over medium-high heat until it starts to become tender. Add cremini mushrooms and cook for an additional 4–6 minutes, or until mushrooms start to become tender. Add minced garlic and cook for one more minute, until garlic becomes fragrant.

Return cooked pork and add tomato sauce into the pan and stir to combine. Once heated through, remove from heat.

To assemble the lasagna, use a 9同 casserole dish and create the first layer with the sweet potato slices. Make sure to overlap each slice to create an even layer. Pour out half the meat sauce over the sweet potato slices and spread out evenly. Pour out half of the cottage cheese mixture over the meat sauce and spread evenly. (It’s okay if it doesn’t look perfect—it will still be super tasty.)

Repeat steps with another layer of sweet potato slices, meat sauce, and then cottage cheese. Top with a thin layer of sliced fresh mozzarella and cover with tin foil.

Place in the oven bake for 30–40 minutes, or until sweet potato slices are almost fully tender.

Sweet Potato Lasagna Ingredients

Since these noodles aren’t noodles, I had to do some experimenting to figure out what works and what doesn’t as a filling. When I tried making this recipe with a classic ricotta filling, it was too moist. As a result, I turned to a few unconventional ingredients to make it less moist, but super flavorful. Here’s what’s in it:

  • Sweet potatoes! Because sweet potatoes are all different shapes and sizes, your noodles won’t be perfectly rectangular. That’s ok! Get crafty and piece them into a thin layer as best you can. – I often make lasagna with diced canned tomatoes layered throughout. They added too much moisture to this recipe, so instead, I spread a single layer of tomato sauce at the bottom of the baking dish.
  • Ricotta and feta cheese – Because ricotta was too moist on its own, I mixed in feta cheese to thicken it up. The feta also adds a tangy bite, which contrasts deliciously with the earthy sage in the filling.
  • Fresh basil and sage – Sweet potatoes and sage are one of my all-time favorite flavor combinations, so I had to add sage to my sweet potato lasagna filling. I also mix in a generous amount of basil for fresh Italian flavor.
  • Garlic and red pepper flakes – They add a little kick to the creamy, cozy filling.
  • Fresh spinach – Because I love my lasagna with lots of veggies! I layer the raw spinach straight into the lasagna. No need to cook it beforehand!
  • Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese – Who doesn’t love their lasagna with a layer of brown, bubbly cheese on top?

This video/blogpost is part of a big HOLIDAY collaboration with a bunch of awesome vegan YouTubers. Everyone made such amazing looking food – check out the playlist to watch all of the delicious recipes.

I’ve really been obsessed with lasagna lately. I used to be super intimidated by the idea of making lasagna. I think my fear stemmed from this one time when my friend and I attempted to make lasagna with oven-ready noodles but I guess we didn’t make it saucy enough so the noodles were super undercooked. It was a strange experience. After that, I’m pretty sure I didn’t make lasagna for a while.

Now that I’ve gotten over my tragic experience, I’ve learned to love making it again. Especially during this time of year when I’m craving those warm & cozy comfort foods. Sure, it does require a little more work than some of my usual recipes but it is so worth it especially if you are making a dinner for other people as well. This would be such a great dish to make for a holiday potluck or a nice Christmas dinner. Or if you are just cooking for yourself, one lasagna could literally be meal prep for a week! Who doesn’t want lasagna every single day? I wouldn’t get sick of it.

Like my last lasagna video, I made my own sauce – this time with a slight twist. I wanted to make a vegan bolognese-type sauce with some lentils. In hindsight, I think brown or green lentils would have worked better to make this more of a “bolognese” style, but this still worked very well and was delicious.

Alternatively, you could just buy a nice jar of marinara sauce!

The lasagna (as I mentioned in the video) definitely didn’t turn out aesthetically pleasing. I was actually very disappointed at how “ugly” it looked. I even considered (for a very brief moment) making it again to see if I can get a prettier looking dish. But I reminded myself that my channel isn’t about “pretty” food. Nor is it about being perfect and having the perfect looking type of photos. As I always say, this is REALITY. Not Pinterest (not dissing Pinterest by the way).

So the lasagna ended up looking more like a simple casserole dish with things just thrown in there (lol) but it still ended up tasting delicious. That’s really all that matters, right?

So check the recipe out down below and of course, watch the video to get the visuals! You could make this and bring it to a nice vegan holiday potluck or make it for your loved ones for your Christmas party dinner.
