Snow has started falling here in Stockholm and this was the perfect cozy recipe! I upped the recipe to make 4 but to be honest the portions are so generous, the original recipe of 3 bowls would have stretched out to 4! Super filling! I swapped out fresh spinach for frozen and topped it with lots of nutritional yeast!

PUL Team - Nov. 19, 2023, 4:08 a.m.

Ahh winter is coming! Thanks so much for sharing your experience with the lasagna soup, Molly 🤗

Quokka Family - Nov. 16, 2023, 7:55 p.m.

Not my favorite. The tomato overpowers the other tastes a bit.

Lisa - Nov. 15, 2023, 8:50 p.m.

Super easy to make and my picky sister approved :)

Andrea - Nov. 3, 2023, 7:22 a.m.

You know it’s good when my husband says “this is vegan?” Ohh yeah baby

PUL Team - Nov. 3, 2023, 9:25 a.m.

Yessssss 🙌

Leo - Oct. 7, 2023, 8:43 p.m.

Absolutely loved it. Easy to prepare and you end up with a perfectly hearty and wholesome meal <3
I swapped the soy ground for sunflowerHACK and used frozen spinach instead of fresh.

Lianne - Sept. 23, 2023, 11:38 p.m.

this was very warming, comforting and easy to prepare! recommend to add bell pepper for some extra veggies. will definitely make this again!!!

PUL Team - Sept. 24, 2023, 2:47 a.m.

Woohoo! Thank you, Lianne ✨🫶

Cherry - Sept. 19, 2023, 8:03 p.m.

Worth it. Easy to prepare and very good. Will make again!

Linda - Sept. 16, 2023, 2:21 p.m.

I switched Spinach for Corn and it turned out amazing! Also, it’s a perfect party recipe for many people to enjoy.

Valérie - Sept. 13, 2023, 12:46 a.m.

This is sooooooo good and easy to do!! I also sometimes replace the lasagna with macaroni!

PUL Team - Sept. 13, 2023, 7:41 p.m.

Woohoo! Love the modification to different pasta, Valérie :)

Geetha Lakshmi - Sept. 5, 2023, 7:01 a.m.

Delicious 😊

Danielle J - Aug. 29, 2023, 6:57 a.m.

Out of this world delicious! I can’t get enough of this recipe. It’s comforting, delicious and nutritious. 🙌🏼

emma - Aug. 29, 2023, 4:22 a.m.

this soup changed my life

PUL Team - Aug. 31, 2023, 9:19 a.m.

Haha love it! So happy to hear it, Emma 🥰

Susi Moe - Aug. 7, 2023, 8:51 p.m.

Another creative recipe that I really enjoyed. My husband doesn’t like mushrooms, so I swapped with zucchini.
I don’t see myself unsubscribing from the app in a million years as I‘m cooking PUL recipes almost all the time and I‘m always enjoying it so much.❤️

Brandy - Aug. 2, 2023, 9:50 p.m.

Okay.. my carnivorous family founded this more then delicious. This is a home run.

Luisa Castiblanco - Aug. 1, 2023, 3:38 a.m.

I absolutely love this recipe! And my 9 year old loves it too ☺️

Rebecca Hall - July 24, 2023, 9:21 a.m.

Lovely! So tasty. Love a one pot dish and so flavourful! Definitely will do again and recommend to others!

PUL Team - July 26, 2023, 10:48 p.m.

So happy to hear, Rebecca, happy cooking 😃

Sarah - July 19, 2023, 3:25 a.m.

A bit more involved and took longer than listed for prep. It took me around 1.5hrs of mostly doing something from start of prep to completion of dish. I miscalculated some items since I had to do conversions/math to get all the correct measurements from the packaged ingredients not matching what is needed. So for taste, even tho I had to make some swaps, it is still pretty good. I used lentil lasagna.

Hope - June 27, 2023, 11:16 p.m.

I love this recipe. Works well with a can of black beans instead of veggie ground beef. I also use an entire pound of mushrooms. Super delish!

Maria Larsson - June 25, 2023, 11:25 p.m.

Carrie - June 25, 2023, 10:53 p.m.

I love this recipe. I add a chopped red pepper and some black beans also. Thanks so much for you page and videos. Looking forward to the app 😁

PUL Team - June 26, 2023, 3:15 a.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Carrie! We hope you enjoy the App too if you're able to give it a try 🤗

Letty - May 5, 2023, 12:17 a.m.

I loved this lasagna recipe. I added a bit of pepper flakes to give it a kick.

Carolina Bernardes - April 19, 2023, 9:41 p.m.

Nirupama - April 15, 2023, 12:31 a.m.

Made this dish twice in 2 weeks... Love this recipe and the taste was so so yummy! Thank you PUL.

Kittye - April 3, 2023, 2:40 a.m.

I just served this dish to two carnivorous Gen Zers and they both loved it, as did I. It is easy to make, the ingredients are easy to find, and it is hearty and satisfying. Thank you for another winner!

PUL Team - April 3, 2023, 6:51 a.m.

Such a big compliment, Kittye, thank you!

Barbara Harris - March 28, 2023, 2:32 a.m.

Just made this for dinner and it was wonderfully flavored and hearty without being too heavy. We loved it and will make again!

PUL Team - March 28, 2023, 7:19 a.m.

Woop wopp! Thank you, Barbara 🙂

michelle - March 24, 2023, 8:47 p.m.

I enjoy this soup and use mini lasagna noodles instead!

Kathy - Feb. 13, 2023, 3:22 a.m.

Mmmm...this is yummy! I had the same problem mentioned earlier: noodles sticking together. I did stir quite a bit as suggested, but next time I might use a different pasta.

I added some thin sliced zucchini and some leftover olives, and this is definitely a keeper!

PUL Team - Feb. 13, 2023, 7 p.m.

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with it, Kathy! Pasta sometimes sticks together due to starch so aside from stirring, adding salt to the water and ensuring that the pot is boiling before putting in the noodles can help. Some people also find that rinsing the noodles with cold water before adding them to the boiling soup or adding a small amount of oil can prevent sticking. Just some other ideas in case you're interested, so glad it was enjoyed 🤩

Liz - Feb. 6, 2023, 3:20 a.m.

Delicious and extremely easy to prepare. So glad I found you!

tadajon - Feb. 2, 2023, 2:45 a.m.


Kristi - Jan. 22, 2023, 9:13 p.m.

Great recipe, instant winner with everyone!

Barbara - Jan. 20, 2023, 7:07 p.m.

Ideaal als je geen zin hebt om traditionele lasagna te maken. Erg lekker!

Robyn Licata - Jan. 11, 2023, 10:13 p.m.

I’ve never tried a PUL recipe I didn’t like! This was amazing, so nourishing and easy to make! I made extras for me to reheat throughout the week, too!

PUL Team - Jan. 14, 2023, 4:40 a.m.

Awe so happy to hear, Robyn, enjoy the leftovers!

Alicia - Jan. 3, 2023, 7:02 p.m.

This was delicious! What a great recipe. I made it impossible meat’s mince and my lasagna loving husband has a new favorite dish!

Mary - Jan. 2, 2023, 11:49 p.m.

Yum! Do you have any lasagna recipes coming?

PUL Team - Jan. 3, 2023, 9:02 a.m.

Not yet, but we'll add it to our list! :D

Luisa - Oct. 23, 2022, 4:56 a.m.

I've made this recipe a number of times and it's one of my son's favourite (and he's a super picky eater). He asks me for it some times! I would just add more water than what's called for in the recipe as mine seems to dry out quite a bit. Maybe my lasagna noodles just take longer to cook. I'll continue to make this often. Thanks for the great recipe. BTW love your website!!! So easy to use and to check/mark the items that I've done as I go through the recipe. Well done :)

PUL Team - Oct. 23, 2022, 7:58 p.m.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with it, Luisa! We're so glad it's being enjoyed. Sometimes the water recommended for cooking soy veggie ground or noodles may vary so adding more is a lovely idea if needed 🙂

Ola - Sept. 2, 2022, 4:10 p.m.

This is so delicious. It reminds me of pasta that I used to eat as a child. Very cozy meal.

Chantel - July 31, 2022, 7:32 a.m.

This is the only vegan meal I've made for my meat eater family that brings them in for seconds. The leftovers are also scrumptious but are rare- I've grown accustom to making a bigger batch now though!

PUL Team - July 31, 2022, 9:25 p.m.

Oh it means so much, Chantel, thank you for taking the time to share!

Laura - July 21, 2022, 7:51 p.m.

Dear Sadia, thank you for another delicious recipe! I made it for my (non-vegan) parents who visited me today and it was a great success!
A question: are your bouillon cubes for 1/2 or 1 liter each? I used 1,5 cubes for 1 liter each, and it was enough salt for us already.
Best wishes from Zuid-Limburg (NL)!

PUL Team - July 22, 2022, 5:48 p.m.

Hey there, Laura! So glad the lasagna soup was enjoyed. The packaging of our cubes suggests using 1 cube per 1/2 litre of water. Using more or less to taste is a lovely idea, as there can be a big difference in taste or water recommendation from brand to brand! Sending hugs to Zuid-Limburg 🙂

Maria - July 14, 2022, 11:36 a.m.

Im allergic to soy, peanuts, beans, lentis and peas (legumes) and gluten. What can i replace the soy veggie ground and brown lentis with?

PUL Team - July 14, 2022, 8:43 p.m.

Hey there, Maria, some ideas could include a nut (such as walnut) based veggie ground, chopped mushrooms, jackfruit, or quinoa. You could also opt to leave out the veggie ground or lentils for less bulk in the soup if desired 🙂

Stacey - May 22, 2022, 10:07 p.m.

This is my favorite lasagna soup recipe. I have tried others but this one is the best. I keep coming back to it like comfort food.

PUL Team - May 24, 2022, 1:22 a.m.

A lovely compliment, Stacey, thanks a bunch 🤗

Jan Saunders - April 20, 2022, 1:17 p.m.

Made a 6 person pot of this beauty for the 4 guests at my vegan bed and breakfast (The Beet Retreat!) and had heaps left over! Hearty serves, wonderful robust flavour, easy, satisfying and delicious! Didn’t make any changes. I know your recipes are always spot on!
Another winner Sadia! Thank you!

PUL Team - April 20, 2022, 6:56 p.m.

Awe we're so happy to hear, Jan, and thank you for taking the time to share! It means so much 🤗

Sara - April 2, 2022, 7:19 p.m.

I’m trying this soup tonight and looking forward to it. It looks delicious!

PUL Team - April 3, 2022, 10:25 p.m.

We hope you enjoy it, Sara!

Aurora - March 31, 2022, 9:36 a.m.

I made this with lentils and added vegan cheese on top and it was delicious! I have a question though as I had a problem with the lasagna noodles. I stirred the soup for a while once I added them in but they ended up sticking together a lot and struggled to cook because of it so I spent ages trying to separate them myself. Would you have any tips to prevent that?
Thanks a lot for another great dinner :D

PUL Team - March 31, 2022, 10:44 p.m.

We're so glad the soup is being enjoyed, Aurora! Pasta sticking together is sometimes from the starch. Adding the salt, being sure to wait until the pot is boiling before adding the lasagna noodles, and stirring more often should help. Some people also find that rinsing noodles in cold water before adding to the boiling soup contents or adding a touch of oil can help. Do let us know how it goes if you give the soup another try 😃

Ximena - March 23, 2022, 11:19 p.m.

Thank you, it’s really good. At the beginning I got confused and added ginger and chili from another of your recipes 🤭 but the mistake tasted good 😊

PUL Team - March 24, 2022, 3 p.m.

We love our ginger and chili 😛 So happy the lasagna soup was enjoyed, Ximena!

Elle - Feb. 23, 2022, 8:27 p.m.

Made this for dinner tonight with the lentils. Omg we both loved it! Tasted exactly like lasagne and hearty enough to have for evening meal and feel very satisfied. We will add this into our weekly rotations! Thanks PUL 😊🙌🏻

PUL Team - Feb. 24, 2022, 9:30 p.m.

Woohoo! So happy it's being enjoyed, Elle, thank you :D

Shivani - Feb. 13, 2022, 3:01 a.m.

Hi! This looks delicious! Can't wait to try. I love pickuplimes!!
2 quick questions -
- could I substitute the balsamic vinegar? Google says a replacement is red wine vinegar + some maple syrup, wondering your thoughts on that or any other replacements. Want to make this perfect and if balsamic vinegar adds a little oomph I don't want to miss out on that!
- Could I sub fresh for canned diced tomatoes? If so, do I need to adjust any salt or anything like that?
Thanks so much!

PUL Team - Feb. 14, 2022, 3:27 a.m.

Hey there, Shivani, thanks for the questions! Balsamic vinegar helps to add flavour and depth to the soup. You could omit it, or experiment with substitutions such as an alternative vinegar with sugar (red wine vinegar and some maple syrup sounds lovely), soy sauce, or lemon juice. You can also use fresh tomatoes in place of the canned if desired. We'd recommend giving the soup a taste test and adding more spices or salt if needed. You can also add some water if it needs a bit more liquid 😊

Becky - Jan. 20, 2022, 11:14 p.m.

Cuddling up with a big bowl of this on a cold winter's night. Perfect.

PUL Team - Jan. 21, 2022, 7:01 a.m.

That sounds delightful, Becky!

Heather - Jan. 11, 2022, 11:58 a.m.

This soup was not only delicious but also so easy to make! Just the hearty dish my family needed on a cold winter day. The only problem was it was so good there were no leftovers! Next time I'll make a double batch!

PUL Team - Jan. 12, 2022, 4:21 a.m.

So glad it was enjoyed, Heather, a double batch sounds lovely 😎

MIREILLE - Dec. 9, 2021, 12:46 a.m.

Totally unexpected. This is delicious and perfect for Montreal's cold winters. I'm in love.

PUL Team - Dec. 9, 2021, 1:43 a.m.

We appreciate the kind words so much, Mireille! Hugs to Montreal 🤗

Clara - Dec. 5, 2021, 2:23 p.m.

This has to be one of my favourite recipes of yours ! So easy and flavourful, especially for those colder days ! I like to make a huge amount so that I can eat it the next day as well 🥰

PUL Team - Dec. 5, 2021, 5:52 p.m.

Such a lovely compliment, Clara, we appreciate the kind words so much 😍

Snjezana - Nov. 30, 2021, 1:41 p.m.

Just to let you know, not that far from NL (in Brussels), you are 'the chef' of my kitchen. Ever since I've 'discovered you', my cuisine can't live without your receipts. This one I tried today - love it! The simple 'thanks' for your existence is just not enough.

PUL Team - Dec. 1, 2021, 3:18 a.m.

Oh it means so much to hear, Snjezana, thank you for the kind words and support! Hugs to Brussels 🤗

Yousra - Nov. 24, 2021, 1:48 a.m.

Ohhh this recipe is my favourite! I’ve made it so many time, so hearty and good!

Chantel - Nov. 18, 2021, 12:39 a.m.

My family is very opposed to vegan food, insisting the flavor is always lacking but this dish is a winner in my home! This says a lot considering in my culture we primarily eat meat or seafood with rice for most meals.

PUL Team - Nov. 18, 2021, 1:43 a.m.

We're so glad the recipe is being enjoyed, Chantel, thank you for the review :D

Erna - Nov. 14, 2021, 11:16 p.m.

I made this recipe with a homemade veggie round - . It was fantastic and will become one of my go to recipes.

Lynda - Sept. 20, 2021, 11:52 a.m.

Hi PUL team !

I made this yesterday afternoon, but came dinner time, the soy veggie ground had completely absorbed all of the liquid. It became like pasta with vegan bolognese sauce (I left it for around 5 hours). We still enjoyed it but unfortunately the flavor of the soy veggie ground took over the other flavors. I will try this recipe again with lentils to retain the soupy aspect.

PUL Team - Sept. 20, 2021, 3:51 p.m.

Hey Lynda, thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience, and I'm sorry to hear it wasn't quite as you'd hoped. My theory might be that the veggie ground you used was a dehydrated version - could that be possible? The soy veggie ground we use from our local grocery store doesn't absorb any liquid, but I know there are some "textured vegetable proteins" on the market that do indeed absorb a considerable amount of liquid. I'd check your package instructions. If it indicates to first hydrate the soy veggie ground with water, you might want to do that first separately, and then add it to the soup once re-hydrated. I hope this helps for now, and I'm glad to hear the taste will still enjoyed nonetheless 😊

Lynda - Sept. 20, 2021, 10:31 p.m.

I just checked and you are absolutely correct, it is dehydrated! I will rehydrate it next time before using it in the soup. Thanks for taking the time to answer ! 🙏

Tiffany - Sept. 20, 2021, 12:58 a.m.

This is my new favorite soup! I made it with lentils and it was very delicious. My daughter loved it too and she is a meat lover. Thanks for sharing!!

PUL Team - Sept. 20, 2021, 6:17 a.m.

Aw a huge compliment, Tiffany! So happy you and your daughter are enjoying the soup 😃

Leah - Aug. 16, 2021, 9:53 p.m.

This is on regular rotation at our house. I make it with ground beef but will try the lentil option soon. Sometimes I add a can of vegetable juice to up the flavor a bit at the end. Crusty bread and a fresh salad and you're good to go! Even better the next day. Thanks for the awesome recipe!

PUL Team - Aug. 17, 2021, 11:55 p.m.

Mmm sounds delicious! Thank you for sharing, Leah 😃

Teo - Aug. 4, 2021, 6:13 p.m.

This is an amazing soup! The concept of Lasagna Soup blew our minds so we had to try it.
I made this recipe 3 defferent ways: actual mince (before we managed to introduce more plant based meals in our diet), Quorn mince (alright but I wasn't a big fan of the texture as I found it too soft), and Pui lentils as we couldn't find brown lentils (this was by far the BEST and I much preferred it to the actual beef).
An amazing recipe, simple to make and it just looks and tastes amazing 🥰

PUL Team - Aug. 5, 2021, 5:42 a.m.

Thanks so much for sharing your experience with this one, Teo! We're so thrilled the lentil version was enjoyed 🤗

Jade - July 31, 2021, 5:49 p.m.

I love lasagna, but the traditional way is so time consuming. I love that this whips up pretty fast with little prep on my part. It’s even speedier since I was gifted an Instant Pot. :) It’s one of my go to soups/stews for winter (which last far too long here in Saskatchewan). Even my picky 2 and 7 year olds gobble this up.

PUL Team - Aug. 1, 2021, 9:02 a.m.

So thrilled to hear the lasagna soup was enjoyed, Jade, thank you 🤩

Elizabeth - July 29, 2021, 1:46 a.m.

Love this recipe - make it all the time! Turns out thick and hearty, almost more like a stew than a soup - delicious. (Could also be because I make it without mushrooms - just not my thing, but still delicious!)

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 11:41 p.m.

We're so happy the recipe was enjoyed! Thanks for sharing your experience with it, Elizabeth ☺️

Yvonne - July 25, 2021, 3:22 p.m.

Made it several times already. It is very delicious! Thank you for this receipe!

Sarah-Jane - July 14, 2021, 8:38 p.m.

This is my go-to winter soup. Sooooo comforting and delicious. Even if you miss an ingredient or two, eating it always ends up feeling like a big warm hug. I love this recipe!

Clare - July 12, 2021, 9:14 p.m.

I made it with brown lentils and it's really delicious! I would only add more spinach since it adds an extra bit of freshness!

Aarika - July 12, 2021, 4:22 a.m.

This is one of my favorite meals. I love having a batch to take for lunch during the week in the winter. I always follow this recipe as is!

PUL Team - July 16, 2021, 6:29 a.m.

So glad you're enjoying it, Aarika, thank you!

Matilda - July 10, 2021, 10:05 a.m.

So tasty and easy to make!

Ritz - July 8, 2021, 8:38 p.m.

This soup is AMAZING. I love one pot meals and this one is so good. You get the comfort of lasagna but so much quicker and easier. I love adding a sprinkle of vegan cheese on top. If you add less liquid, it also makes a great, hearty pasta dish.

PUL Team - July 11, 2021, 12:34 a.m.

We're so happy you're enjoying the soup, Ritz, thank you 😃

Wilma - July 8, 2021, 6:16 p.m.

This recipe is amazing! It's so creamy it doesn't need anything like cheese and it's so easy to prepare. What I like about this recipe is that you can get a lot of veggies in without feeling like you're eating super healthy. I imagine it would be great for kids.

Can't wait to try more of your recipes Sadia!

PUL Team - July 10, 2021, 3:11 p.m.

In our experiance, little ones love it too! Thank you for the lovely review, Wilma ✨😃

Cris S - June 5, 2021, 4:29 p.m.

This is absolutely fabulous! It's much much better than a non-vegan equivalent could ever be!

PUL Team - June 5, 2021, 9:46 p.m.

So glad you enjoyed the lasagna soup, Cris 🙌😃

Michaela - March 31, 2021, 8:52 p.m.

so so good! i made this 100 times. instead of the mushrooms you can use 2 Tbsp. porcini powder (i make my own by grinding dryed mushrooms). For the soy veggie ground i use brown cooked lentils.
thank you to PUL!
The new website is great :-)

PUL Team - April 3, 2021, 1:03 a.m.

Thank you for taking the time to share, Michaela! We're so grateful for the support 🥰
