The Story of My Very First Vegan Lasagna
Here’s a little secret – this is only my third time (in my entire life!) making cooked vegan lasagna. As many of you know, I used to be a raw vegan for the first 4 years of my vegan journey. Back then, I only made raw vegan lasagna, which also happens to be absolutely delicious.
But I felt that it was now time to prepare something more comforting and ooh gooey! And I wanted to try my hand at some cooked lasagna. I made my very first vegan lasagna on this vlog.
Then, a reporter from the San Diego Union-Tribune came over to take some photos of me while cooking, and I made my “famous lasagna” yet again. Ha! Check me out blending up the tomato sauce in this shot.
And the third time making vegan lasagna – well, that is right now, my dears! This video captures the third cooked vegan lasagna I have ever made, and since three is actually my lucky number and “third time’s a charm” – I can promise you it’s a good one!
Anyway, I am telling you all this to encourage you – none of us are naturally born great cooks. It just takes a little bit of experimentation and fun in the kitchen.
Every time I prepare a dish that I’ve never made before, I do feel just a little bit intimidated. So I look up a bunch of videos on how to do it for inspiration, and then I dive right in.
The key? HAVE FUN. This has been the key to my life in the last couple of months. I’ve realized that I am way too serious most of the time. Having fun with everything you do is guaranteed to produce great results. And even if it doesn’t, well then you’ve enjoyed the process, and that is really all that matters.
This is probably a topic for a different, much deeper blog post. But my dear partner has recently noticed that I always look like I am suffering when I work, and this has started the “fun revolution” in my life.
I hope you join me! We are never supposed to suffer, and I just know that we are meant to enjoy every single moment in life.
And now, let’s make some fun times vegan lasagna.
