Sweet Potato Lasagna with Minimum Ingredients!

I absolutely love lasagna! It has my favorite dish since I was a child and it always comforts me to prepare it and, obviously, eat it. The only problem is that to cook it, it usually takes some time and effort. There are several steps involved, and sometimes I just can't commit. This is why this recipe is so great and precious; we can make this filling and nutritious comfort dish in under an hour!

This sweet potato lasagna calls for lentils, carrots, tomato sauce, vegan cheese, and lasagna sheets. Uber simple! The best part is you can add any veggies you have or you fancy. A great addition would be to add some shredded spinach! It's always a good idea to add some green to your dishes, you add nutrients, and you take the chance to add some veggies you wouldn't necessarily eat on their own.

How To Make Sweet Potato Lasagna?

Easy peasy! Sautee your onions and garlic, add your veggies and cook until tender. Add your tomatoes and passata and cook for 15 minutes. Layer this mix with the lasagna sheets in a baking dish and add the vegan cheese on top. Bake for 40 minutes and voila! You made a delicious sweet potato lasagna that might last you for days or feed your entire family!

Can You Freeze It?

Absolutely! Make sure you put it in an airtight container or a silicon bag. It will keep for a few months, and when you want to use it, you'll only need to place it a previously warmed up oven. This recipe would be perfect for baking for a friend who just delivered a baby and would appreciate having some ready to go meals in her freezer!
