Delicious Vegetable Lasagna

This is our favorite recipe now, everyone loves this. As we are not eating meat any more I am trying to make our old favorites in a new way. And I am always making something new to keep things versatile and find new favorites. We really don’t like to eat the same things week after week, so I am making every week a new menu, maybe few dishes from previous week favorites I’ll make again, like one fave dinner, few salads and some dessert maybe. As I make dinner every night, I am always looking for something new. So if I find something good and easy, I will share the recipe with you. We are having something fresh every day, so some simple salads always go with our dinner and desserts is either some fresh fruits or raw desserts with nuts, seeds, dried fruits, cocoa etc.
