Thanks for new lasagna recipe. DH likes some vegetarian or vegan meals I make but he is still an omnivore and likes a "meaty" lasagna that I will eat too. I still like my dairy sometimes. ;-)

Mushroom Gravy
yield: 5-1/2 cups
Ingredients:
8 oz mushrooms, your choice, sliced
1/4 C sliced onions
1-1/2 Tbsps. oil
1/2 C white flour
2 Tbsp oil
4 cups stock, vegetable bouillon or soy milk
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp black pepper
Directions:
Lightly sauté the sliced mushrooms and onions in the 1-1/2 Tbsps oil. In another pan, combine and bubble the flour and 2 Tbsp oil over low heat for one minute. Whisk in the stock, bouillon, or soy milk, along with the soy sauce and black pepper. Cook until thickened, whisk out any lumps.Stir in the mushrooms and onions, and serve.

I use crimini mushrooms, unbleached flour and vegetable broth made from "Better Than Broth" brand vegetable broth which is vegan added to boiling water.

Also, Bastyr University in North Seattle, been there and eaten in their cafeteria several times, has a great Cashew Gravy, if you can find Cashew Butter where you live. The link for that is www.bastyr.edu/recipes/cashew-gravy . It goes with their Walnut/Rice Loaf which is also excellent. Check out all the vegetarian recipes they have.

Well my family follows the ukrainian tradition of meatless Xmas eve dinner so we do the vegetarian borscht, pierogies, cabbage rolls, etc. Everyone else that's not veggie (ie, everyone that's not me) has fish too.

Vegetarian rather than vegan - but this is the christmas special I have made for years and even the meat eaters now ask for the left overs as it has become so much part of the tradition
Ricotta Lasagne
1. Make a rich tomato sauce using two tins of tomato and onion and herbs.
2. Steam very quickly about 1kg (500 lbs) of two sorts of vegetables - I use spinach and mushrooms but can use any two.
3. Layer tomato sauce, lasagne, each of two veggies, lots of ricotta, parmesan and a bit of mozzarella until no more veggies. Top with a bit of tomato sauce and then final layer of cheese and bake..

I am going to try the apple walnut lentil loaf. I found it and it sounds wonderful. Thanks Boni. What is the vegan mushroom gravy recipe Ruthey?

I agree with Boni. Angela's apple walnut lentil loaf is awesome. I made some recently for a church potluck. Everyone loved it!! Several people asked for the recipe. I have been asked to make it for Christmas to take to share along with vegan mushroom gravy. And these are meat eaters who are requesting I make something vegan to share!!

Here's an easy thing for leftovers. I make the stuffing so that it's vegetarian. I take the leftover stuffing (mine is basically bread, onion, celery and sage), and add a little cheese and heat it till the cheese melts. Yummy!
