How far back does the vegan lifestyle reach? Is veganism a modern-day invention? Were there vegans in ancient times? In this first edition of The History of Veganism series, we look back- way back- to ancient times, staring 9,000 years ago to trace the roots of veganism to their very source.
Oh dear oh yeah hello everyone my name is Lisa and I’m gonna be speakin because I did and I’m vegan and today we’re going to be making vegan lasagna but it’s also gluten free because in case you didn’t know I am now gluten free I really love lasagna lasagna is delicious I like that it’s just kind of like a little block of like everything that you want in one kind of like section it’s not the most beautiful food but it’s definitely delicious I mean it’s like spaghetti casserole we will be using a tofu ricotta we’re also going to be making kind of like a meat sauce with it you don’t have to do that if you don’t want to I just kind of feel like it and it was really good when we did it last time I like kind of like a very bulky lasagna and we’re going to be using frozen spinach by the way the gluten-free noodles that we’ll be using are by King Giada brown rice pasta we made it for the last lasagna we made and it was actually really good it tasted exactly like normal pasta it’s great so I recommend this we got a pot a teeny bit of oil doo doo onions kind of keeps cooking away they look sweaty Phyllis nice nice and good got some browning happening caramelizing some from the some natural sugars of the onions I guess some garlic powder I know like it says garlic powder it’s granulated garlic both works I just found out this is what we have so you can use fresh garlic too I’m just being lazy so we got some pasta sauce this looks nice and browned and delicious we’re going to add in the pocket oh dear oh dear oh okay why is it so bubbly this is like a flashback to what happened I think in like my first video just going to jump in the rest of the past so I’m going to add half of this can Oh God so splashy and the best thing causes Lavanya is that it’s like a lot of food like if you don’t really like cooking that often you can make one of these as Anya’s and it can last you probably the entire week depending on how you learn in your house I think with Eddie and myself lasagna probably lasted like four or five meals probably and because it’s so like packed full of protein there’s like the ground around which we’ll be adding in a second and the tofu ricotta which will be making after this is done it’s just like it’s super filling and super delicious if you were to serve this to like an omnivore they probably wouldn’t realize that it’s vegan dispelling those vegan miss that vegan food isn’t satisfying so I’m going to use some ardena beefless ground the Eve’s ones I only use that one has gluten for you this one does not have gluten this is just PR soy baby I mean this is going to be a very soy heavy lasagna that’s just gonna be our protein of choice today if you so choose you can also add lentils into the sauce just on maybe about 1 cup of water to 1 cup of lentils in here and that’ll just cook up some lentils you’ll have a little extra protein in there and it won’t be sitting so I’m adding the whole bag [Music] special thanks goes out to Eddie Eddie did all the dishes and put away all the dishes and helped me set this all up because he is a partner who supports me daddy boo-boo because we’re baking this in the oven it doesn’t need to get like super super cooked through we just want to have it kind of amalgamated into the sauce and you know doing this thing we’re gonna turn off the heat we’re going to take this away some people don’t use this much lemon but I think that like a ricotta is like really cut tart I’m going to squeeze half juice lemon in there then we’re going to add some tahini now this tahini has suck so if you have like actual tahini that’s not this whatever this stuff is I mean I don’t know it’s not it’s not great this isn’t like the kind of delicious silky – key that you get from like middle-eastern stores I’m not gonna lie this is the white people pay me it’s not good sorry I only got it cuz it’s on sale this is about probably two tablespoon about a teaspoon of miso so I’m going to have it in there a quarter cup of nooch I’m going to eyeball it cuz I’m lazy and a little bit of garlic powder this is this garlic powder I’m just going to mix this all up so it looks kind of gross but have faith it is gonna work out you can add a little bit of oil too if you want to but I think that’s heaney already is quite oily enough that looks good to me I got I’d love to help you crumble a tofu because my Azima is not happy with you today so you got the tofu happening and we’re just going to crumble it up [Music] see admit yourself maybe like a quarter teaspoon not a time and because you guys know that I’m super sensitive to salt maybe you need a teaspoon and now taste as we go so I’m going to use some frozen chopped spinach so that’s one cup all bad is the disaster Alomar because I like a lot of spinach so I’m going to do like three cups I actually still come to the surface this is about for a total if you don’t like frozen spinach use something else you can use broccoli you can use kale you can use whatever the heck you want so I’m going to defrost them the microwave for about a minute or two my defrosted spinach just put that all in yeah and you have like a spinach ricotta kind of situation and you can put this inside of like phyllo pastry or like puff pastry – if you guys want to make like I don’t know phyllo cups spanakopita this will be a delicious filling for Senator PETA we’re going to start off with that passeth off before where I use what Eddie called a giant spoon because apparently the spoon of too big it’s a normal system to use the cheezer’s spoons I know what is with the guys in my life who like to have tiny students ate with weird you’re weird so just spread a little bit of sauce on the bottom just to give it a little little some song to work with you don’t do what I did I left this pasta just kind of chillin all clumped up together on the side for an extended period of time and as a result it is well clumpy so don’t do that so this might not be the most beautiful lasagna you’ve ever seen but I’m just keeping it real in the channel mistakes were made so we’re going to grab the ground round soft pasta sauce that we had before [Music] we’re gone a little bit of cheese make sure you get the edges so that you’re lose money doesn’t dry out was speaking you’re going to cover it with aluminum foil and bake for about half an hour and then they can’t uncovered for 10 minutes hello I’m back I changed my shirt because in case you didn’t notice there are a bunch of stains all over from the explosion that happened in the pot so now we’re going to get all up in here the battery on that camera died so no more above food porn kind of this is back to the one camera setup all right let’s cut me a slice an try and leave like this side intact so that I can take a picture which mark I feel like cold lasagna is like much easier to photograph we’ll see so when I go there let’s see if I can do this separate the side got a prep it oh god this is oh wow that butt went a lot better than I expected look how delicious it looks holy man this is beanie and like look at the noodle and looks just like gluten e noodles follow that’s hot I just burned part of my tongue but it’s delicious hmm I love lasagna this brings me back to like being 14 and I was just like living with my mom and we didn’t really my mom wasn’t home a lot because she was working because you know single-parent life so I ate a lot of like that box lasagna from like the grocery store and I would cook that up and that would be my dinner and well my mom came home so this tastes exactly like that you got like some cheesy action some spinach delicious pasta sauce noodles a tiny bit of cheese it tastes like my childhood which is weird because this is not Vietnamese food

in lasagne I hope you guys try this out and subscribe for more videos like this I’m really glad that a lot of you guys stuck around for especially after my video from Saturday about veganism and privilege the video was with Emily from this Russell’s vegan life and it was awesome because I got to hang out with them and we eat delicious foods I know a lot of people don’t really like to talk about that kind of stuff just cuz like they just want to focus on recipes and don’t really worry about like the politics or like the kind of tougher subjects but as vegan advocates I think it is really important that we address privilege because there are some people that just don’t have the privilege in order to be vegan I’m sure veganism is very affordable but there are more aspects to privilege then affluence if you guys haven’t watched that video yet click over there go take a look thank you guys so much for watching and I hope you guys have a delicious day bye
