Ingredients

Cheese sauce: 2 tbsp Nuttelex or other vegan margarine 1 onion 1 tbsp whole grain mustard. 1 cup vegetable stock 1 cup plant milk (not sweet) 1 heaped tbsp nooch 2 tbsp tapioca starch 1.5 tsp vegan lactic acid salt 1 packet silken tofu (optional) Tomato 'Bolognese' sauce 1 cup red lentils 2 cans tomatoes 1 can water 2 heaped tsp vegan 'beef' stock (Massel is good) 2 tsp oregano 2 tsp paprika 1/2 tsp liquid smoke 1 tsp crushed garlic 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar. Parmesan 1/3 cup bread crumbs 1 tbsp savory yeast flakes 1 tbsp oil Lasagna sheets Bunch or two of spinach wilted and chopped.

Method

To make the cheese sauce: Cook till onions are soft. Mix the stock, plant milk, nooch, tapioca starch, vegan lactic acid, and salt in a jug and then add to onion mixture. Stir over low/med heat till thickens. Blend the silken tofu with a stick blender and stir through the sauce. Tofu at end is optional, it thickens it further and increases protein but the sauce works great without it if you don't do soy. To make the bolognese sauce Put everything except vinegar into pressure cooker and cook till lentils done, (or just a normal pot with lid, just takes longer) then add vinegars. To make the parmesan Mix all ingredients in a cup. To assemble Order goes as follows: small amount (just enough to thinly coat the dish) of tomato sauce on bottom then pasta sheet, 1/2 spinach, 1/3 cheese sauce, pasta sheets, 1/3 tomato sauce, pasta sheet, 1/2 spinach, 1/3 cheese sauce, pasta sheets, 1/3 tomato sauce, pasta sheets, 1/3 tomato sauce, 1/3 cheese sauce. Top with vegan parmesan. Bake in 180 deg oven till poking a skewer through pasta sheets is easy-peasy. Take out and rest for 5 or 10 mins and then devour. Serves 8 depending on how hungry you are feeling!
