|"My diet is 100% natural. I am a vegeterian and I follow a diet which is enriched with Ayurvedic herbs and spices. My favorite recipe by far is Gluten-free Vegan Lasagna.I learned this recipe from [url]iahas.com[/url] and it is very tasty.
This recipe takes a vegan twist on lasagna where zucchini and eggplant ribbons replace pasta, lentils and tomatoes replace ground meat, and a nutty pesto makes it golden and rich. The hearty spices give this dish an earthiness and warmth that makes for a comforting meal.
