To begin, preheat your oven to 450 degrees F.

Cook the lasagna noodles according to the package directions (don’t overcook). If the box says 7-9 minutes, I’ll usually cook them for 7 minutes. Drain and rinse. Set aside.

Meanwhile, make the béchamel sauce. To a large saucepan over medium heat, add the vegan butter (I use Earth Balance). When melted, add the flour and stir with a whisk. Immediately add 1 cup almond milk and nutmeg. Stir with a whisk and simmer over medium heat until thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

When the béchamel sauce is thick, remove from heat and transfer to the bottom of a 9×12 glass baking pan. Distribute evenly on the bottom of the pan.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the vegetable broth, minced garlic and shallot. Sauté for 2 minutes, stirring, then add the zucchini, mushrooms and carrots. Cook for 5 minutes until veggies are starting to get soft. Remove from heat.

Meanwhile, in a high powered blender, add the raw cashews, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Blend until very fine. Add the lemon juice and 1/2 cup almond milk and blend until creamy.

Transfer the cooked veggies to a large bowl and add the cashew cream. Next add the spinach and 1/2 cup chopped basil. Stir until combined.

To each piece of lasagna, add about 1/4 cup veggie/cashew mix and spread across the noodle.

Roll the noodle up and place each roll in the baking pan, spaced apart evenly, on top of the béchamel sauce. Repeat until all noodles and filling are used up.

Bake uncovered at 450 F for 25-30 minutes or until bubbling. Add extra sauce, or sprinkle with chopped basil and/or nutritional yeast if desired. Makes 8 lasagna rolls.

You can also cover and freeze for later. To do this, remove from the freezer and let sit for 20 minutes, then bake at 450 for 35-40 minutes.

  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

Notes

*If you don’t make the béchamel sauce, you save about 4 grams of fat and 40 calories per lasagna roll.

  • Hi! Can we sub macadamia nuts, instead of cashews?

    Reply
    • Hi Andrea, I haven’t tried that yet. I imagine it would change the flavor quite a bit. I’d recommend cashews, but if you try macadamia and it works out, let me know. =)
