Deconstructed Vegan Lasagna with Spinach and Mushrooms

Here is my deconstructed lasagna that takes about 45-50 minutes to make and it’s so flavorful. It’s tangy and savory yet very creamy.

I came up with this beautiful recipe rather spontaneously. Nick called me and said he was craving lasagna and was about 40 minutes away. I thought challenge accepted. It turned out to be absolutely mind-blowing and it's been one of his favs ever since. Save this recipe for later, you won't regret it! 👌💚
