Before you start

Preheat oven to 180°C | Food processor | Saucepan | Lasagne dish

Making the béchamel

  • Start off by soaking your cashews - 30 minutes in a pan of water on a low heat should do the trick
  • To make the béchamel, put all the ingredients a part from the nut milk in a food processor and blend until smooth
  • Pour the mix into a pan and stir in the nut milk. Keep stirring on a low heat until it has thickened nicely

Making the tomato sauce

  • Fry the onion in a pan with the olive oil until translucent, then add the garlic and stir for a few more minutes until softened
  • Next stir in the sun-dried tomatoes, oregano and tomato puree
  • Add the red wine and keep stirring for a few minutes until the alcohol has cooked off and the sauce has thickened slightly
  • Then add the chopped tomatoes, capers, olives and pasatta, stir until well combined, and then take off the heat

For the veg

  • Slice the aubergines and courgettes fairly thinly and griddle each one for a few minutes

Assemble your lasagne

  • It's really up to you how you go about this, but we started with the tomato sauce, sprinkled over some basil, then 4 sheets of lasagne, a layer of béchamel, some pesto, then the griddled veg
  • Repeat until your dish is full

Cooking the lasagne

  • Cover your lasagne in foil and bake for 45 minutes
  • Remove the foil for the last 10 minutes of baking to get a slight crust on top
  • Serve with a side salad
