The Best Healthy Vegan Lasagna

Lasagna is something special.. It's creamy, savoury and comforting. I always had it at home when I was younger and I loved it! I still love lasagna but as vegan I have never been able to buy one and never really thought of making my own.

I decided to make my own super yummy plant based healthy lasagna with no fake cheese or other unhealthy stuff. Even though it says that my plant based lasagna has "cheese sauce" in it, it's a healthy "cheese sauce" based on cashews! The sauce is sooooo goood. Read my post here why I'm not into cheese from the cow's breastmilk. 

There's really not much to say about this vegan lasagna than - try it out! It's super delicious and will not disappoint you. Oh, It's also cholesterol free.
