Vegan Mexican lasagna

  • SHARE
It's actually logical that Italian lasagna and Mexican chilli sin carne would go together! Both use tomato sauce and either white sauce or sour cream, so why not combine the two. And the resulting fusion was amazing! I don't know why I haven't tried that before!


Chilli sin carne is super delicious, nutritious and very easy to make. And then you just combine it with some white sauce made from cashew nuts and layer like you would with a normal lasagna. Tastes super nice and will have people talking.

METHOD:


Preheat your oven to 180C (360F).


Then finely chop 1 onion and 1 red pepper. Sauté in a bit of oil. Then add all other chilli sin carne ingredients. Cook on high to medium heat for 20min. Add a bit of water if necessary. Stir occasionally to make sure it doesn't burn.


While this is cooking prepare the cashew white sauce. Just add all ingredients to a blender and blend until you get a smooth texture. If you have an average smoothie blender there is no need to soak cashews first.


Then get an oven-proof glass dish and spoon in a layer of chilli sin carne. On top of that add a layer of lasagna sheets. Then pour over the white sauce. Layer with thinly sliced peppers, then pour some more white sauce on top to cover them completely. Add another layer of lasagna sheets and then pour over more of the chilli sin carne to cover the sheets completely. Repeat the last step one more time.


Put in the oven and bake for 35-40 min.


Take out and serve with avocado slices on top and garnish with parsley. Enjoy!


And if you don't have much time why not try the quickest lasagna ever here.




Enjoy!
