  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 medium red onion diced
  • 100 g vine tomatoes chopped into quarters
  • 120 g mushrooms sliced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 2 cans black beans drained and rinsed (400g x2)
  • 680 g passata 1 large glass jar
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 4 handful fresh spinach
  • Salt & Pepper

Vegan White Sauce Ingredients:

  • 200 g cashews soaked for 15 mins in warm water
  • 4 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 4 pinches pepper
  • 200 ml unsweetened plant milk I use almond
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp water


  1. Pre heat your oven to 200C and place your cashews in warm water
  2. Start by heating a large pot on a medium heat with olive oil, garlic, onion along with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook this down for a couple minutes
  3. Meanwhile chop the mushroom and tomatoes and add them to the pot along with the dried basil and oregano to cook down until soft
  4. Whilst that is cooking, drain and rinse the black beans before adding to the pot with the passata and tomato puree and stir. Cook all this together on a low/medium heat for 10 minutes
  5. Once the tomato sauce is cooked, simply stir through the spinach allowing it to wilt down
  6. Now add all the white sauce ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth
  7. Simply layer up the lasagne how you like it (I go for tomato sauce, lasagne sheet, tomato sauce, white sauce, lasagne sheet and so on)
  8. Finally grate over the vegan cheese and place in the oven at 200C for 30 minutes
  9. Top with fresh chopped basil + serve with a side salad (optional)


If you have leftovers, store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
