This classic vegan lasagna will make the whole family happy! Say hello to layers of vegan ricotta, marinara sauce, lasagna noodles, and vegan b├ęchamel sauce. One of my flaws is how impatient I am. Sharing recipes with you guys is no different – once I get an idea, I want to share it with you IMMEDIATELY. But amazing things take time. This lasagna recipe is one of those amazing things. I have been so excited to share this with you!

Instructions
  • Soak cashews in water overnight.*
  • Bring about 6 cups of water to a boil. Lay the lasagna noodles out in the pan you'll be making your lasagna in. Cover with the boiling water. Give the noodles a little stir - this will help prevent them from sticking. Cover the pan.

  • Bring to a simmer on medium heat. Simmer until thick and creamy, then remove from heat. Whisk in the yogurt alternative.
  • Drain the water from the cashews.
  • In a blender or food processor, pulse the cashews until broken down into smaller pieces.
