Veggie Lasagna (wheat free, dairy free, and gluten free)

Veggie Lasagna (wheat free, dairy free, gluten free) . My meat and cheese-loving family has actually requested this veggie lasagna from time to time.  It’s fabulous, and it’s easy!  You can make it wheat and gluten free by exchanging traditional lasagna noodles for thinly-sliced eggplant instead, like I did here, or you can use try gluten free noodles or opt for a more traditional lasagna by using traditional noodles.  No eggplant on hand?  Use sliced zuchinni.



Ingredients:

  • 1 large onion,chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 8 large mushrooms,sliced
  • 1/2 head of broccoli, chopped
  • 1/2 head of cauliflower, chopped (or you can use one full head broccoli)
  • 2 large carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1 red and 1 green pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 2 or 3 handfuls of fresh spinach
  • 3 medium sized sweet potatoes, baked (I cook them in the microwave)
  • 2 large eggplant, sliced thinly
  • 1 package firm tofu
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary (If you don’t have the individual spices, use 3 teaspoons of Italian Seasoning)
