Ingredients

Portions: 6
  • 50g vegan butter alternative
  • 50g plain flour
  • 500ml Wunda Unsweetened
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp white miso
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 fresh bay leaf
  • 200g mushrooms, cleaned and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated, crushed or finely chopped
  • pinch grated nutmeg
  • 600g spinach, washed and shredded
  • 30g pine nuts
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • 175g Vegan Cream Cheese Alternative
  • 300g lasagne sheets

Steps

1m

Heat oven to 200˚C, (180˚C for a fan oven), gas mark 5.

5m

Melt the vegan butter in a saucepan on the hob over a medium heat. Add the flour and stir to combine. Let the mix cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the mixture starts to look a little thicker.

10m

Add about 50ml of the Wunda to the saucepan and stir in until completely combined. Continue to add the Wunda a bit at a time, mixing in completely before adding the next bit.

5m

Once all the Wunda is mixed in, stir in the nutritional yeast, white miso, apple cider vinegar and fresh bay leaf. Cook the sauce for another 3 minutes, stirring occasionally to stop it catching. Set aside until it’s time to assemble the lasagne.

15m

In a large pan add half the oil and all the mushrooms and fry over a medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until all the mushrooms’ moisture has evaporated. Transfer the cooked mushrooms to a plate. Add the remaining oil, onion and garlic and cook until the onion has softened. Add the spinach, vegan cream cheese, pine nuts and nutmeg and season to taste. Cook until the spinach has softened down – this takes about 3 minutes.

10m

Remove the bay leaf from the white sauce. In a large wide dish, layer the lasagne sheets with the tomato sauce, spinach mix and two-thirds of the white sauce, finishing with a layer of lasagne sheets. Pour the remaining third of white sauce over the top of the final pasta layer. Cover the dish with tin foil and place in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove the tin foil and bake for a final 5 minutes.
