Start the tomato sauce

  • Put the cherry tomatoes and garlic cloves on a baking tray and roast them for 15 minutes

Start the béchamel sauce

  • Pour the soy milk, flour, nutritional yeast and seasoning into the pan and stir it until the béchamel reaches your desired thickness (it needs to be roughly the same thickness as custard)

Continue cooking the tomato sauce

  • Pour the olive oil, chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, olives, capers and seasoning into the pan and cook them so they're simmering gently
  • Take the cherry tomatoes out of the oven, add them to the pan and stir them in to the tomato sauce and take the pan off the heat

Arrange the lasagne

  • Arrange a layer of roast vegetables on top of the tomato sauce
  • Sprinkle a layer of chopped spinach
  • Add a layer of dry lasagne sheets
  • Pour a cup of the béchamel on top of the lasagne sheets and smooth it out over them with the back of a wooden spoon
  • Sprinkle on some plant-based cheese
  • Repeat the process until all the ingredients have been used - make sure you finish on a béchamel layer

Time to bake

  • Put a layer of tin foil on top of the lasagne & bake it in the oven for 30 minutes
