How To Make FIRE Vegan Lasagna

  1. Preheat oven to 350° and set up tofu to drain.
  2. In a medium pot, add 3 cups of water to lentils and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower down to a simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Add cashews to a blender and blend it a bit.
  4. Cut drained tofu into a few slices. Use paper towels to blot out more moisture from the tofu.
  5. Add tofu, salt, oregano, basil, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, and lemon juice to the blender with cashews. Blend all together until smooth.
  6. The lentils should be ready at this point. Drain them and place them back into the pot with the two jars of marinara sauce. Stir together.
  7. Pour 1 cup of the lentil sauce into a 5 X 8 brownie style pan.
  8. Top the lentil sauce with lasagna noodles. Then take half of the cheese mixture from the blender and put that over the lasagna noodles. Then add 1 1/2 cups spinach on top.
  9. Add another cup of lentil sauce on top of the spinach, then layer more lasagna noodles on top. Add the rest of the cheese mixture, top with spinach, and use the rest of the lentil sauce to cover the top. Use a lid or aluminum foil to cover the pan. Bake for 1 hour.

Comedian Preacher Lawson

Preacher Lawson is a stand-up comedian, actor, singer, human, professional black guy. I was born in Portland, Oregon, but raised most of my adolescence in Memphis, TN. I moved 20 times before age 10, but if you asked me what city I'm from I'd say Orlando, FL. Because that's where I grew as a comedian.

Growing up switching schools all of the time you had to learn how to adapt. Everywhere I'd go I would learn about different people and different cultures, but I noticed the one universal language everyone had in common was laughter. Which is how I spoke and warmed up to most people. Even when I wasn't the funniest I was still the loudest.

I started writing jokes when I was 16 for about a year, then decided to perform for the first time at age 17 as between my mother and I. Best decision of my life.

Are you addicted to salt and sugar?

Many of us don't even realize that we are addicted to two harmful substances that can easily be substituted. If you love sugar, try using maple syrup. If you love salt, try using Pink Himalayan Salt. Can you believe these two simple replacement ingredients have health benefits?
