sweet potato lasagna, GAWDAMN that is good :)

I saw a recipe for sweet potato lasagna some weeks ago and was intrigued, finally getting ready to make it yesterday.

But it looked boring.  It looked dry.  But it seemed like a good starting point!

I have always loved making lasagna, and buy good rice noodles now and make it vegan  (That doesn't mean you have to)

I made sweet potato lasagna MY WAY, and it is naturally gluten-free, obviously, and can be made vegan or not.

The whole idea is, slice sweet potato instead of using noodles, DUH! So easy! Recipe follows***

Gary's sweet potato lasagna

-preheat to 375, grease an 8 x 8 baking dish

-slice some onion and veggies and sauté (I used onion, broccoli, spinach), then add about 1 1/2- 2 cups of tomato sauce--simmer a few minutes, you want it thick--make sure to add lots of spice

-slice 3 medium sweet potatoes thinly with a sharp knife, make 3 even piles

-mix about 1 1/2 cup of ricotta with some spice, like oregano and garlic (I make a vegan mix of tofu, nutritional yeast, soy milk, soy sour cream and fake cheese mashed together, but do what you want)

-lay one sliced sweet potato down to cover the bottom of the dish, then blob on half the ricotta, 1/3 of the tomato sauce next, then the second sliced sweet potato, cover with the rest of the ricotta, another 1/3 of tomato sauce then the last layer of sweet potato, cover with the last of the tomato sauce then sprinkle a ton of cheese on there

-bake 45-60 minutes!

Sounds yummy! I just discovered organic sweet potatoes have skins that taste good...have been peeling mine for years (not organic)

That sounds delicious. I love sweet potatoes. When my daughter was small she hate tofu. I used to substitute half the ricotta cheese in stuffed shells with soft tofu... no one even noticed!
