This year, I decided to revisit an always favorite Lasagna for my feast. This Lasagna is sure to blow everyone’s mind away. It is delicious, wholesome, decadent, does not look like a vegetable :), has no fake meats and smells amazing too. It has smoky flavors from the creamy Chipotle sauce, the traditional from the marinara, loaded with mushrooms and Spinach or anything else you want to layer up, topped liberally with Daiya havarti and crisp herbed bread crumbs. What more can you want :) 
The Cheesy and creamy Chipotle Cauliflower sauce is based on my very addictive Roasted tomato, cauliflower chipotle mac and cheese sauce, which has received rave reviews by everyone who tried it. It is a light sauce with a Cauliflower base and limited nuts and still makes the dish feel indulgent.

    I love the look of the lasagne and rolls, with some flan to follow. And brussels sprouts – I can never get enough of those. I really fancy having a little English Thanksgiving just so I can have an excuse to get stuck in…

      Thanks Heather. That cornbread was loved by hubbs and so was this lasagna. he took some leftovers for lunch too, which he never does for any food:)

    This is so awesome, and too perfect! Years ago, we were discussing how on my dad’s side of the family no one actually likes turkey, so maybe it would be wiser to just get lasagna for Thanksgiving. I loved the idea, but of course it didn’t stick… With this recipe in hand though, maybe I can finally make the inaugural Thanksgiving lasagna happen next year!

    Richa, this lasagna was sooooo delicious and such a hit at my Thanksgiving gathering. It is amazing what you can create vegan when you put your mind to it. When making the Cauliflower sauce, I wanted to eat it by the spoonful!!!! Thank you so much. Question, what about a vegan quiche? I’ve been trying to find a good recipe, and found one that works, but I can only imagine what you would create. Let me know what you think.
