Okara (free form) Lasagna

Okara a la Italia reminded me of lasagna filling. I love melted cheese and lasagna is always a good excuse to pile on the cheese. Since the okara is already fully cooked (which means pretty dry), I decided to cook lasagna sheets  and assemble the lasagna on the plate instead. The resulting dish is worth a dinner’s try!


  • Lasagna sheets (I use 2 per one-person serving)
  • Gratin cheese, mozarella, gouda or emmental, grated or sliced
  • Okara a la Italia


  • Boil lasagna sheets according to package instructions (usually about 8-10 minutes, depending on the kind of bite you prefer)
  • Reheat okara if it’s been cooled. You may want to add a little more seasoning, especially salt because the pasta is plain and depends on the filling for flavour.
  • Cut each lasagna sheet in half
  • Layer lasagna sheet and okara filling alternately
  • Top with cheese
  • Melt cheese using either a microwave (about 30 seconds using 600 watt) or the grill function of the oven (2 minutes or so)

Buon Appetito!
