INGREDIENTS:

Serves 8

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 brown onion

3 garlic cloves

2 red chillies, seeded

400g button mushrooms, quartered

300g pumpkin, peeled, cubed

1 red capsicum, diced

800g can lentils

800g can tomatoes

1/2 cup mixed herbs

1 cup vegetable stock

2 tablespoons tomato paste

1 packet of Rice and Corn Lasagne Sheets

 

White Sauce

2 cups oat milk

1/3 cup miso paste

1/4 cup spelt flour

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

2 tablespoons olive oil

 

Optional Toppings

Vegan Cheese.

 

HOW TO:

1. Preheat oven to 180C. In a deep frying pan heat oil on medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and chilli and sauté until onion is tender.

2. Add quartered mushrooms, cubed pumpkin, diced capsicum and herbs and continue to sauté for a further 4 mins.

3. Stir in drained and washed lentils, tomatoes, vegetable stock and tomato paste.

4. Bring mixture to the boil then reduce heat and simmer until thickened.

5. While the mixture is thickening, make the 'white' sauce. In a bowl, slowly stir the oat milk into the miso until a smooth texture. Add nutmeg to taste. In a saucepan on low heat combine the oil and spelt flour, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and blend in the miso mixture until smooth. Return your 'white' sauce to high heat and stir until thick.

6. Cover the bottom of a lasagne dish with half vegetable mixture. On top of this add lentils and cover with half miso sauce. Add a single layer of the rice and corn lasagne sheets. Repeat the process 2-3 times depending on how many layers you want.

7. Bake lasagne for 40-45 mins. Remove from oven and let sit to cool and set.
