Recipe: ‘Make & Freeze’ Roasted Squash & Creamy Pesto Lasagne (Vegan)

Roasted Squash & Creamy Pesto Vegan Lasagne

I’ve lamented in previous posts that lasagne can be a bit of a faff to make, and whilst it is one of my top five all-time-favourite meals, I can’t always muster up the energy to make it.  But now and again I have a burst of enthusiasm and make a batch of individual lasagne for the freezer, ready to pop in the oven when I haven’t got the time or inclination to cook.

Here’s a recipe for just that sort of lasagne – this Roasted Squash & Creamy Pesto Lasagne freezes really well, and is a fun cooking project for a rainy Saturday afternoon, making you 8 individual dinners for cold winter nights to come.  Layers of sweet roasted butternut squash, a creamy (and vegan) pesto béchamel, and roasted cherry tomatoes pack this with flavour between the sheets, and a breadcrumb and pine nut topping give it a lovely crunchy top without the need for cheese.

Veganuary-heartThis is my last Veganuary post as the month draws to a close, (though there will be lots more vegan recipes coming up, don’t fear!), and I thought I would share one of my very favourite “but surely that can’t be vegan” meals, my super-duper vegan lasagne.

The big surprise is the intensely creamy, velvety, even (dare I say) “cheesy” sauce layer, for which the recipe is below.  For the other tomato-ey ‘mince’ layers I used a batch of my Slow-Cooked Borlotti Bean Chilli from the freezer, bulked out with some soya mince and extra veg to make it stretch a bit further.   Continue reading “Recipe: Creamy Vegan Lasagne Sauce”
