The pumpkin and spinach combination is such a classic vegan recipe. Perfect for this vegan lasagna recipe. It’s filled with whole foods and absolutely no need whatsoever for a meat substitute with 12 grams of plant-based protein per serving. And let’s be real, lasagna is comforting, inexpensive, and extremely easy for anyone to make. It’s all about building your layers!
The ricotta layer is mixed with the spinach so less layers to remember for the building stage. There is also very minimal preparation for the pumpkin layer.

So when talking vegan lasagna recipe, we have vegan parmesan cheese, vegan ricotta, and for this particular recipe we have pumpkin and spinach. We haven’t touched on what noodles to use!
Can we make this recipe even greater by making it low carb?
I’m glad you asked! Egg roll wrappers. They are not only a great low carb hack, but also a great no bake noodle option. I used these egg roll wrappers to make this recipe. Two wrappers per layer for a total of 12 eggroll wrappers used for the recipe.
Want to make this pumpkin spinach lasagna vegetarian instead of vegan?
Sure! Use a ricotta mix boned with egg, garlic powder, and a splash of milk. Your cheese layer will be mozzarella and parmesan.
How many layers does this lasagna make? What container to use?
This vegan lasagna recipe makes six (6) layers. I used a 3X7 glass container that holds 64oz/8 cups.
What kind of milk to use?
I personally prefer a soy milk or flaxseed milk for this vegan lasagna recipe for the pumpkin layer. Oat milk even plain is too flavored for this recipe. I would also suggest plain almond milk for those without an allergy. I have an almond allergy so it’s soy milk for me. Fortunately, when I tested this recipe, I was able to test almond milk too as my allergy had allowed me to still drink almond milk at that time. Those days are gone for me now though but I’m glad I have many years of experience with almond milk to know how it taste in savory dishes vs other plant-based milks.
