Soy White Sauce Vegan Lasagna with Tofu and Spinach

Ok I upfront admit I am not a vegan, there I said it so it is out there for you to know up front. But what I do know is food and how to blend ingredients so they work together and in a coherent set of instructions hopeful too. I do respect anyone who makes any food choice that is right for them and I am in the food business so I try and make things that will serve my visitors well. Now one of my most pinned recipes is the vegetarian lasagna recipe so with this in mind I realized I wanted to take it one step further and offer my vegan friends lasagna they could enjoy as much as their vegetarian counter parts have enjoyed the other.

Now like I said I am not a vegan so although I feel my research is sound and my methods, combinations and proportions should be right on, there are a few things I have to take on faith and if for any reason you have ANY suggestions on how to improve the recipe please leave me a comment and I will adapt with any constructive criticism. Now please keep this all in mind and be civil (my kids see my sites) and I mean no bad intentions but I am not perfect and trying to try this out on my guys would likely get one of my twins roasted by their older brother.

So I ask for your help to make a recipe that is the best it can be for all my vegan friends. Just because someone makes a life choice that is right for them I think we should support everyone in the culinary world and offer food that is not only healthy and wholesome but that just downright taste good. I have been doing this for a very longtime now and one of the things I have always tried to do is treat everyone with respect and respect everyone’s right to their ways. In fact this is our tenth anniversary year this year in internet business lifecycles that is like a 100 in the brick and mortar world and I have gotten here by always trying new things.

Chicken Parmigiana with Fettuccine

This classic dish, which is also known as chicken parmesan or simply chicken parm, is a tasty Italian recipe which is cheap to make and makes chicken breasts go a long way. Chicken breasts are first breaded and then topped with tomato sauce and cheese. We are using parmesan and perhaps some mozzarella too. Sometimes provolone is used as well. Some people like to add a slice of ham or bacon too, so you can tweak this recipe if you want, using any of these options.

You can use Ritz crackers or similar wheat crackers, leaving the salt out of the recipe if you are using salty crackers. This recipe is often served as an entrée in the United States, with pasta, spaghetti or mashed potatoes. The chicken can also be served between bread slices to make a sandwich. If you wish to try this, use less tomato sauce else your sandwich will be too soggy. Fries are a typical side dish for chicken parmigiana in Australia. We like to use fettuccine, and also add a simple garden salad on the side.

The chicken is coated in egg and then seasoned cracker crumbs. This crispy coating sticks perfectly to the chicken. Next you need to add garlic-tomato sauce and parmesan. You can add some mozzarella too if you want to. This recipe makes enough to serve six people but you can halve it if that is too much. The dish takes about 40 minutes to cook in total, so start the fettuccine in the final 10 minutes, so it is ready at the same time as the chicken. Serve some Italian red wine on the side if you like, or a lightly chilled Italian blush wine. Continue reading
