WOW!! If this recipe was my creation, I would have called it "Ratatouille Lasagna". I loved the eggplant layer in this dish! The recipe, as written, didn't include any seasonings, so I added salt, pepper and italian seasoning to the sauce. The tofu layer was quite bland, but a big handful of feta cheese kicked it up some. I covered the pan with foil before baking because the sauce was so thick and I wasn't sure that there was enough moisture to cook the noodles properly. It turned out pretty good, but I probably wouldn't make again due to the major cleanup after and this was sort of expensive to make. We did like it, but didn't love it. I am glad that I tried it though, thanks Bel for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 180c.
  2. Chop tofu and marinate in vegetable stock for one hour.
  3. Saute onion and garlic in oil until clear.
  4. Add tomato paste and crushed tomatoes.
  5. Simmer for 35-45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Slice eggplant then sprinkle with salt, then leave them for 20 minutes. Rinse the salt off and pat the eggplant slices dry.
  7. Grill or fry the eggplant until tender.
  8. Chop the peppers, and mushrooms, then saute in a little oil until tender.
  9. Drain the tofu, then blend with spinach, pine nuts and basil in a food processor until creamy and smooth.
  10. Mix the peppers and mushrooms with half of the tomato sauce.
  11. In an oiled oblong baking tray, layer the lasagna sheets, followed by the tofu mixture, then the vegetable mixture, then the slices of eggplant, the tomato sauce and top with a handful of cheese. Repeat until all used up, then layer the final sheet of pasta on top, followed by anything leftover, and finally a layer of parmesan. Make sure that the lasagna sheets are completely covered with the tomato sauce or they will dry out during cooking.
  12. Bake for 40-45 minutes.
