Crock Pot Vegetarian Lasagna Recipe. You can prepare this easy vegetarian lasagne in your crockpot using just a few simple ingredients. Using tofu instead of cheese makes this lasagne recipe very low-fat and also vegan.

With 284 calories per serving, this lasagna also just barely sneaks into the low calorie category. Just watch those portion sizes!

Ingredients:

  • 1 container soft (silken) tofu
  • 1 container firm or extra firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 10 ounce packages frozen spinach, thawed and patted dry
  • 4 cups tomato sauce
  • 1 10-ounce box lasagna noodles

Preparation:

In a food processor or blender, combine the silken tofu, firm or extra-firm tofu, soy milk, garlic powder, lemon juice, basil, and salt and process until smooth. Add the spinach to this mixture.

Place about a cup of the tomato sauce in the bottom of the crock pot or slow cooker. Then place 1/3 of the noodles on top of the sauce, and 1/3 of the tofu and spinach mixture on top of the noodles. Repeat these layers, being sure to end with sauce on top.

Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, or until noodles are soft.

Makes 6 servings of lasagna.

Has potential; a little bland, broke our blender, Guest Richard

This is a great recipe, but a little dry and bland. The first rule for making lasagna should be to always use more sauce than the recipe calls for. I'd recommend a flavored pasta sauce instead of plain tomato sauce, and add in mushrooms and black olives. Trying to mix the ""silken tofu, firm or extra-firm tofu, soy milk, garlic powder, lemon juice, basil, and salt"" in our blender burned it out. Might have been better off doing it by hand in a large bowl.
