My friend, Lynda, was kind enough to invite my into her kitchen to watch and learn how to make her vegan lasagna. 

Sometimes dishes that traditionally contain dairy can seem intimidating. This recipe may have a few extra steps to make the tofu ricotta, but it is definitely worth it! I found it was way less intimidating to make this recipe than I originally thought.

Let us know if you try it out!
