  4. For the vegetables, heat up a pan with oil and add garlic. When it turns brown, add the zucchini and eggplant. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Layer the lasagna on a 30 cm x 18 cm pan. Heat up your béchamel sauce again to make sure it’s not too thick. Add some water and soy milk to make it creamy.
  6. Put the first layer of lasagna sheets, then add tomato sauce. Put some lasagna sheets again, then a layer of béchamel sauce. A layer of sweet potato goes next, then lasagna sheets, followed by béchamel sauce and tomato sauce.
  7. To make the vegan cheese, heat the cashew butter and soy milk then stir. Add nutritional yeast, salt and oregano and keep stirring until it thickens.
  8. Spread cheese over your lasagna and bake for about 30-35 mins. Keep an eye on it after 20mins to avoid overcooking. Garnish with chopped herbs and nuts. Serve and enjoy a fabulous meal!vegan lasagna
