Lasagna Verde Vegetarian

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 
12 to 14 lasagna noodles 

Spicy Jalapeño Pesto 

2 cups fresh basil leaves 
2 cups fresh spinach 
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice 
1/2 cup walnuts 
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds 
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 
1 jalapeño, seeded 
1 to 3 cloves garlic 


14 ounces firm or silken tofu, thinly sliced 
1/2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil 
Few pinches of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper 
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional) 

Cashew Ricotta 

1 1/2 cups raw cashews, soaked overnight 
1/2 to 1 1/2 cups water or nondairy milk (see Note) 
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper 


1/2 to 1 cup vegan mozzarella cheese shreds 
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil, for garnish 


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a lasagna baking dish with the oil. 
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. As soon as the water comes to a boil, drop in 4 of the lasagna noodles and cook until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the cooked noodles and line them up to cover the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Repeat until all the noodles are cooked, transferring the cooked noodles to a side plate once you have covered the bottom of the baking dish. (If you are able to cook more than 4 noodles at a time without having them stick together, you can do that too.) Reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water. 

For the Spicy Jalapeno Pesto 

In a high-speed blender, combine all the pesto ingredients with 1/3 cup of the pasta cooking water and blend, increasing the speed from low to high, until smooth. The pesto should be thick, yet easy to pour and drizzle, a tad thicker than the consistency of tomato sauce for pizza. Add more of the pasta cooking water, a spoonful at a time, if desired to thin out the texture of the pesto a bit. Pour the pesto into a bowl and set aside. 

For the Tofu 

In a sauté pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the tofu slices and season with salt, pepper, and nutritional yeast (if using). Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tofu edges brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Set aside. 

For the Cashew Ricotta: 

Drain the soaked cashews and rinse under warm water. Place the cashews in a food processor or high-speed blender. 
Add the lemon juice and ½ cup of the liquid and process on high until smooth, which may take a few minutes depending on the strength of your food processor. The water will create a standard creamy texture, but using nondairy milk as the liquid will... Read more HERE
