Easy homemade Quorn lasagne is delicious. This vegetarian Quorn mince recipe serves up to six people. Making it a great meat free meal for entertaining.
Folks, if I’m entertaining guests for dinner then one of my favourite go-to dishes to prepare and serve is this easy homemade quorn lasagne.
Ready in just over one hour this healthy vegetarian lasagne recipe is also low in calories. Each tasty slice is only 295 calories.
If you’re not entertaining then this a great recipe for feeding your family. If you have any leftovers they can be easily frozen too.
I adapted my original beef mince low-cost healthy lasagne to make this vegetarian recipe.
I’ve been making that lasagne recipe for about 25 years and it’s never failed to please. So you can be sure that this one is no different in taste, quality or simplicity to make either!
Those of you who are regular readers and followers (thank you!) know that I use Quorn in a lot of my recipes.
I’m not an affiliate of Quorn. Although I should say that they did once send me some vouchers for their other Quorn products. They did this as a way of thanking me for promoting their product in my recipes.
They have as well shared my Quorn burgers to all their followers on their Facebook page. For those vouchers and that endorsement on their facebook page I am extremely grateful.
What I’ll just say about Quorn is that it’s not only a fantastic healthy vegetarian alternative to meat. But it’s also really versatile. Hence me using it in many of my recipes!
Lady Lynne and I particularly like to use Quorn as a substitute for where we would previously have eaten red meat.
That has helped us to reduce to a minimum the amount of red meat that we eat in our diets.
We try to eat as close as possible to a Mediterranean diet. That diet is rich in vegetables and fruits. And includes a low intake of meat.
The Health Benefits of this Quorn Lasagne
- Quorn is made from Mycoprotein which is an excellent source of protein and essential amino acids.
- It’s good for our digestive systems as it’s high in dietary fibre.
- Quorn is low in salt, fat and saturated fats.
- There is no cholesterol in Quorn.
Just to emphasise that last point more. Red meats such as beef, pork and lamb have higher levels of cholesterol.
A high level of cholesterol in our diets can be a contributing factor towards heart disease. So it’s good to cut down on products containing lots of cholesterol.
But, you don’t have to give up your favourite meals. Just use healthier alternatives. As I’ve done by using Quorn in place of beef in this Quorn lasagne!

This is the basic pasta dish I use. As you can see it’s relatively inexpensive and its perfect for pasta bake recipes.
For making the cheese sauce you’ll need a good hard wearing balloon whisk too. This is the one that I use which definitely won’t break the bank either!

Coming Next Week on Neil’s Healthy Meals
Well folks it’s taken a few days for Lady Lynne and I to come back down to earth after our amazing holiday climbing Kilimanjaro and suning ourselves in Zanzibar!
I’d more or less emptied our freezer of all frozen meals just before we left. So at the moment I’m cooking up lot’s of quick healthy meals to re-stock my freezer. Two of which I’ve photographed and are coming as next week’s blog posts.
Tuesday I’ve got a new budget tinned mixed bean curry recipe. Especially good as you can imagine money is a little short after our holidays.
Then on Thursday, another low cost meal. A quick healthy tomato and basil risotto.
Well, I best get back to tending to all the mounds of washing we brought home. Hope you can join me next week!
Watch the short video I made to show you how to make this delicious easy homemade quorn lasagne. It shows you how easy it really is!
