This vegetable lasagna was a hit. It took me by surprise because we are always making lasagna using white sauce and whatever choice of ground meat. But, when we discovered this recipe, we just had to try it. By the way this was a featured recipe in the giveaway ebook My Life My Diet where we had some weight loss recipes at the back of the book. Suffice it to say, we decided to do this recipe to show you all what great info we are giving away each and every month.
Vegetable Lasagna: A Healthy Alternative
The lasagna is a reduced calorie take on the ordinary lasagna we are accustomed to as you would notice there is no milk and of course there is no meat which is a plus as well. Of course, I can’t leave recipes alone and would always put my trini twist on it, so we opted to add some green seasoning into the mix for that real trini flavour.
I am aware that some of you may not be able to get green seasoning so you can use whatever you have. I thought about adding chadon beni into the mix but had to use some constraint….After all, you don’t have to put chadon beni into every dish you make lol!!
Anyhow, as an added variation to this dish you could add some other vegetables like broccoli or spinach. Or while you’re at it how about a bean like black eye peas or lentils. That would surely substitute for the protein. As usual I’m talking too much so on to the recipe. Here’s Vegetable Lasagna trini style
