The original recipe came from hummusapien.

Our friends and family are always amazed at the ingredients after they try this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 9 whole grain lasagna noodles, cooked (see tips)

  • 1 jar pasta sauce (we like Rao's Homemade Marinara Sauce)

  • 1  zucchini, grated + water squeezed out (using a clean dish towel)

  • 1 yellow  squash, grated + water squeezed out (using a clean dish towel)

  • 1 tsp salt

  • Freshly ground pepper

  • Sprinkle of dried oregano to taste

  • 16 oz extra firm tofu, drained and pressed

  • 10 oz Sabra spinach and artichoke hummus

  • 12 oz frozen spinach, thawed + water squeezed out

  • 2 tsp minced garlic

  • 5 tbsp nutritional yeast

  • 0.4oz container dried basil, divided in thirds



Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.

  2. Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside

  3. Pour about 1 cup sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.

  4. Saute zucchini, yellow squash and garlic in a medium saucepan in olive oil or a spray of cooking oil over medium heat for five minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and oregano

  5. Place the following items into a medium bowl: tofu, hummus, spinach, nutritional yeast, 2/3 container of basil, and cooked zucchini and squash. Use your fingers to mix everything together.

  6. Spread out the noodles onto cutting boards or baking sheet. Spoon out the mixture from the bowl evenly onto 9 good lasagna noodles. Roll up carefully right away and place seam side down in the prepared baking dish. 

  7. Pour  the rest of the sauce over the lasagna rolls, sprinkle with the rest of the basil.

  8. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 35 minutes.

Tips

We usually cook 10 lasagna noodles in case we break one in the cooking process.

You can substitute 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves in place of the dried basil if you have that available.

Original flavor hummus also works well.
