  • 1/2 cup chopped dried tomatoes
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp. mixed herbs
  • Chilli if you like

White sauce:

  • 3/4 litre soya milk or other plant milk
  • 1 tbsp mustard powder
  • 1 tbsp chopped ginger
  • Black pepper

  • 2 heaped tbsp. wholemeal flour

Step by Step Instructions

Red sauce

Cover base of large pan with a little water. Add onions and garlic and simmer till translucent. Add tinned tomatoes, dried tomatoes, olives, pepper, beans, bay leaves, and herbs. Add chilli if you like heat. Add ¼ litre of water and simmer for approximately 20 minutes until nicely cooked down. Keep adding water if the sauce gets too thick.

White sauce

Put the wheat flour in a separate large saucepan. Add soya milk a little at a time and stir to make a paste. Keep adding the soya milk as you slowly heat the sauce so that you don’t get any lumps. Not to worry if you do, just whisk it a little to break them up. Add in the mustard powder, chopped ginger, pepper and yeast extract. Bring to a simmer to thicken.

Layer your lasagne

In a large rectangular dish, put a base layer of red sauce, followed by a little of the white. Arrange the pasta sheets across the top, covering any gaps with broken pasta sheets. Do this for another two layers, ensuring that you have saved enough of the white sauce to cover the entire top of the lasagne. Arrange your toppings.

Final Step

Put into the oven at 180°C for about half an hour or until browned to your liking.


All these ingredients are approximate. Add more or less of each to taste.
