Who does not lasagna?! It’s the ultimate comfort food that everyone loves. This healthy aubergine, dairy free version is to die for and I promise you, you will not be missing meat! I must admit that my relationship with aubergine was rather…bumpy. For a long time I was not exactly a fan of this shiny purple beauty.
