Vegan Lasagne Recipe
For some obscure reason recipe blogs always have a super long introduction telling the whole backstory of the recipe, so I feel obliged to have a short introduction.
Everyone knows lasagne1. They're a great italian dish perfect for dates and pretty much any other occasion that involves eating. Italians tend not to like to revisit their recipes, especially when it involves using ingredients they've never heard of, such as tofu. As an Italian trying to be as vegan as possible, I have been breaking this rule and tried to replace many non-vegan ingredients with vegan alternatives. Please don't tell my grandmas.
This dish was highly loved by my flatmates and both vegan and non-vegan friends, both claiming that the consistency was very much meat-like (tho you will read this from every vegan recipe, and it's rarely true. But trust me, this one is).

Vegan Lasagne By Fabio Barbero, April 26, 2021. 4-6 portions
This recipe was highly inspired by the "original" italian recipe, which can be found on GialloZafferano. If you would like to see a more detailed step-by-step guide (especially for the besciamella), you should check out that recipe.
If you are confused as to why I wrote "lasagne" instead of "Lasagna", check out this explanation (or literally any other explanation online).
