nut roasts, I often have leftovers. Some days we serve them with more vegetables on the side. Other days I enjoy finding creative ways to use the leftovers. When I saw Mel of Veganise This making a cheezy nut roast lasagne, I was keen to try it.
Green (pea) Nut Roast. So my nut roast was chopped up and thrown into a tomato sauce with heaps of vegies. I also added buckwheat for a bit more body.
tofu ricotta and tofu sour cream. These vegan dairy alternatives made lasagna a far lighter dish.

Nut roast lasagna
Adapted from Veganise this
serves about 6-8
1 tsp olive oil
1 red onion
1 medium carrot
2 medium parsnips
5 largish button mushrooms
700ml passata (pureed tomato)
2 cup water
1 cup of diced pumpkin
1 medium zucchini
1/4 cup dried buckwheat groats
1 bunch basil, roughly chopped
1/2 quantity of green (pea) nut roast
2 cups boiled cauliflower and broccoli
1/4 tsp salt or to taste
lots of black pepper
2/3 cup nutritional yeast
1/3 cup unbleached plain flour
1 teaspoon onion powder (I used granules)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon Massel vegetable stock powder
2 cups water
1 teaspoon seeded mustard
1 box of instant wholemeal lasagna sheets (250g?)
2-3 handfuls of cornflakes, crushed
To make the filling: heat oil is a large saucepan and fry onion, leek, carrot parsnips and mushrooms. I just put them in as I chopped them and took about 30 minutes. Add passata, water, pumpkin, zucchni, buckwheat groats and basil. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 20 minutes until vegetables are tender. Stir in nut roast, cauliflower, broccoli, and season. Remove from heat and set aside until ready to assemble lasagna.
To make the sauce: place the nutritional yeast, flour, onion powder, garlic powder and stock powder in a medium saucepan. Gradually stir in the water. Stir in the mustard. Bring to the boil so that the sauce thickens.
To assemble: Splash a little tomato sauce from the filling on the bottom of a rectangular lasagna dish. Layer lasagna sheets, 1/3 filling, lasagna sheets, 1/3 filling, 1/3 cheezy sauce, lasagna sheets, 1/3 filling, lasagna sheets, 2/3 cheezy sauce, crushed cornflakes. Bake at 180 C (350 F) for about 45 minutes or until topping is golden brown and when you push a knife inside the lasagna, the sheets feel soft.
