To prepare this delicious meal, you will need:
1 1/2 cans (600g) chopped tomatoes
7 cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
1 large onion
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp oregano
100 ml water
A handful of chopped basil
50 g all-purpose flour
450 ml soy milk
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp nutmeg
3 big tbsp cashew butter
150 ml soy milk
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tsp salt
1 tsp oregano
1 sweet potato, cut 4 mm thick
1 clove of garlic
Salt and pepper
Baking pan (30 cm x 18 cm)
Chopped parsley and basil
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
Prepare the tomato sauce. Heat up oil on a pan and fry the chopped garlic and onions. Once golden brown, add the tomato paste, cherry tomatoes, salt, chopped tomatoes, and around 100 ml of water.
Let it simmer for a moment, then add basil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Keep mixing until it forms a creamy consistency.
Prepare the béchamel sauce. Heat up the coconut oil and add in the flour. While stirring, slowly add a portion of the soy milk. Keep stirring until it thickens and continue to pour in the rest of the milk.
Season the sauce with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Set aside to cool.
Heat up coconut oil in a pan and add in 1 clove of chopped garlic. Once golden, add in the thin slices of eggplant and zucchini and season accordingly. Keep stirring so it doesn’t stick to the pan and burn.
Start layering, from bottom to top:
Zucchini and eggplant
Prepare the vegan cheese. Heat up the cashew butter and add in soy milk. While stirring, add in the nutritional yeast, salt, and oregano. Once it thickens, spread it all over the lasagna and bake for around 30-35 minutes.
Garnish your lasagna with chopped herbs, spices, and nuts.
Cut out a slice and enjoy!
