Di's Eggplant Lasagne Is Healthy Comfort Food At Its Finest

By Di Westaway | Founder of Wild Women On Top

A lasagne that's gooey, delicious and nutritious? Yes please.

This eggplant lasagne is full of flavour, veggies and plant protein, making it a vegetarian's dream. It's also gluten free, and can be adapted to be dairy free, so it's the comfort food everyone can enjoy.

This lasagne is the best recipe for a slow, Sunday afternoon cooking session, a glass of red wine is optional (but recommended!). It also freezes beautifully in meal-size portions so you don't need to worry about waste. 

Enjoy!

I’ve been a hiker for nearly 20 years and I’ve always thought of myself as a “Leave No Trace” kinda girl. I love the wilderness, and do what I can to protect it. I always take my rubbish with me, and use wilderness wash instead of soap. That’s it, right? Wrong.
