Prep time: 45 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
For the tomato sauce:
- 3 packs button or baby Bella mushrooms (750g) (preferably sliced)
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 3 cans (400g each) chopped tomato
- fine sea salt and black pepper
For the white sauce:
- 6 tbsp olive oil
- 5 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 4 cups (960ml) non-dairy milk
- 2 tsp yellow mustard
- salt and black pepper (to taste)
For the Lasagna:

The most important part of this recipe is making the tomato and white sauces. For the tomato sauce, add the sliced mushrooms in a pot and cover with soy sauce. Saute the mushrooms for a couple of minutes and cover with a lid so that the mushrooms release their water. After most of the water has cooked off, add the chopped tomatoes and let it simmer. Add salt and pepper to taste.
For the white sauce, heat some oil in a pot. Sift the flour into a bowl and add it to the pan when the is hot enough (not sizzling). Stir continuously and vigorously. Add the non-dairy milk and continue to stir until the sauce reaches a nice thickness. Add salt, pepper and mustard.
Use oven-ready spinach lasagna sheets to layer the sauces and reduce cooking time to 30 minutes.
