Iahas-Gluten-free Vegan Lasagna

Gluten-free Vegan Lasagna


This recipe takes a vegan twist on lasagna where zucchini and eggplant ribbons replace pasta, lentils and tomatoes replace ground meat, and a nutty pesto makes it golden and rich. The hearty spices give this dish an earthiness and warmth that makes for a comforting meal.
