Hello, I need to understand vegan cooking philosophy better
So I am not vegan, and I am cooking for my three housemates, one of which is new and vegan. I want to make lasagna, so as to include everyone I want to make a smaller vegan lasagna. I have found cool recipes online but I'm sort of stuck on the philosophy of vegan cooking.
When I look up recipes I see things that tell me "okay make this as much like ricotta cheese as you can" then there are ones that say "okay make it like this and move on" I want to know if in your experience the vegan food pretending to be non vegan food is better or the stuff that just "accepts" its vegan nature is better?
Like I imagine if I tried to make a steak as much like a salad as I could it wouldn't be very good so do I try to find a recipe that mimics lasagna as much as I can or do I try to find a recipe that works for its strengths and just happens to be layered noodles?
I'm sorry if I am not explaining this very well.
