Vegan Mexican Lasagna

Ok, I told you I'd be a busy bee this week getting back to teaching at the college {TODAY!!!, just sayin'}...but here is a delicious post that I've had up my sleeve, just a waitin' to be shared....
Yes, you most certainly DID read that header correctly. My Mister is a huge fan of Mexican food, tacos + all things spicy. I like a little spice + Mexican myself...but the whole "taco production" I can do without! Too much work for a little bit of food, if you ask me! So here enters the influence of my Italian heritage: Vegan Mexican Lasagna.

I treat the soft {whole wheat} tortillas like they were lasagna noodles {begining + ending with them} and just layer my filling. Here I used vegan baked beans and then a layer of taco flavored tvp, corn + black beans. The top layer of tortilla always looks kind of naked to me, so I usually make a sauce, or just dump a jar of salsa on top if I'm in a pinch.

I'm a big fan of the Tofutti Sour Cream, but decided that I was in more of a guac mood, so that's how we finished off this delicious-ness. As much as I love inhaling it, the BEST part about this meal is that it is super easy to make + always big enough for a big group {OR, so there are LEFTOVERS!} And when it comes to this meal, it is almost better the second time around!

Make'll be so glad that you did + will wonder how you ever lived without it?!



  1. That looks amazing! I'm trying to get into the cooking game and I'll definitely have to add this to my list to try out. Thanks for sharing! <3

    Growing up, it was just my mum + I most of the time...and she worked full time. So even though she knows how to cook very well, we didn't eat huge meals + there was rarely meat on the menue {lots of buttered pasta + veggies though!}...

    While I know it can be dauting to think about cooking vegan type meals, trust me, I can relate {since cooking meat seems just as foreign to me in many ways}...but I think it is all about starting with simple things that call for ingredients that are easy to find in regular stores {like this recipe!}

    I really hope you like'll have to let me know how it turns out!

  3. This looks so good! Trying it ASAP.

  4. I have a Vegan Mexican Lasagna recipe that I use. It is very similar. I love Tofutti Sour Cream too. Yum.

  5. We use the same sort of recipe but it is from Pioneer Woman. It is so yummy.


I would love to hear your thoughts...especially if they are nice! So post away friends, post away!
