Place the tofu, lemon juice, nutritional yeast and cornstarch in a high speed blender and blend at high speed until creamy smooth.

While the spinach is cooking, cook the lasagna in a separate pot until tender. Rinse with cold and place back into the pot with a little water.

In a large glass baking dish, place a layer of the spinach and sauce, then place a layer of lasagna, followed by a thin layer of the tofu cream.  Repeat making successive layers in the same order until all the ingredients are used or until the baking dish is full.  Try to have at least three sets of layers.

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F. for 30 - 45 minutes.  Remove, let cool for about 10 minutes before cutting and serving.


The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
