There’s nothing quite like the feeling of euphoria that arises from an authentic plate of old world lasagna.
I’m not referring to the store-bought lasagna that comes attractively packaged in a black plastic container, nor am I talking about the kind of lasagna a restaurant chain serves along with a bottomless bowl of salad and endless breadsticks.
I’m talking about the kind of righteous lasagna that originates from a tattered, sauce-stained recipe card that only a little, gray-haired Italian grandma can hand down to the next generation.
Although a hearty plate of lasagna comes at a price – namely your waistline and overall heart-health, an occasional indulgence is okay if you’re not strictly plant-based. Taste governs health in the case of Nana’s family recipe, but is there plant-based lasagna that can be healthy without compromising on taste?
Nothing will ever replace the sheer genius of Nana’s recipe, but my plant-based, season-friendly Pumpkin–Collard Lasagna Rolls puts a modern, healthier twist on a classic. The rich and savory flavor will surprise you so much that you won’t even believe it’s healthy. And it, too will leave you feeling euphoric.
