Diet Vegetarian Lasagna
This is a very simple and easy vegetarian lasagna recipe full of healthy spinach and eggplant. It's a cheeseless lasagna recipe, so it is much lower in fat than a traditional lasagna.
Layered with crumbled tofu and plenty of spinach, this recipe for a vegan, cheeseless tofu lasagna is hearty and flavorful. No cheese means this recipe is much lower in fat than other traditional lasagna recipes, while layers of spinach fill it up with a healthy vegetable.
Start with store-bought vegetarian "chicken" strips, whip up a simple white sauce, add some tomatoes and vegan cheese, and you've got yourself a meatless dinner with less than 300 calories (just watch those portion sizes, of course!). While many meatless vegan lasagnas use tofu as a ricotta cheese substitute, this one uses a white sauce made from soy creamer and flavored with white wine and plenty of vegan cheese. If you didn't already love vegan cooking, you will after trying this lasagna!
Pumpkin lasagna? That's right! This meatless ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan lasagna is made with a sage and pumpkin cream sauce in place of the usual marinara sauce and layered with sauteed mushrooms and onions. With 17 grams of protein per serving, this is also a high-protein option for vegetarians.

This is a vegetable lasagna recipe packed full of broccoli, corn, mushrooms, carrots and more vegetable goodness.

Be sure she's vegetarian and not vegan2003-04-18 11:57:21 by Taterboy
Or she won't be able to eat the quiche either...eggs ya know.
I've been eating vegetarian as a way to diet for the past six weeks. Never thought I could do it, but I lost 11 lbs so far and haven't really been hungry or missed the meat. The other night I made a really wonderful lasagna with spinach, mushrooms and zucchini for the filling instead of hamburger and for the ricotta I blended a lb of firm tofu with a 1/4 cup of good olive oil, a little salt and a little nutmeg. I got some "tofu-rella" (fake mozzarella) from the local health food store (Harvest on Market St), shredded it and dumped it over the top and baked the whole thing for an hour
I became vegetarian at age 82010-02-02 11:04:52 by oldradiogal
Though, i don't know that i necessarily ate all that healthy. i recall loving toaster waffles and orange juice. to be honest, i do fear that my dietary choices at that age may have ahd some detrimental effects on my health later, but that's not necessarily strictly because of the vegetarianism.
my mother was also vegetarian, and she made lots of bean soups and casseroles. i recall really liking minestrone soup, and my favorite was lasagna (which is of course a lot of work.) her preferences will be different, of course. pescatarian is really not a limited diet, protein wise, as she can still eat eggs, cheese, and all the seafoods
