ORGANIC VEGAN SPINACH AND ‘RICOTTA’ LASAGNE ROLL UPS

Vegan spinach and creamy 'ricotta' stuffed lasagne roll ups - made with our lentil lasagne sheets for an undetectable protein boost.

1 tbsp olive oil

1 onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, crushed

750g passata

½ tbsp tomato puree

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

400g spinach

1 block silken tofu

3 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 whole nutmeg, to grate

6 Profusion Lentil Lasagne Sheets, cut into 4 equal strips lengthways

28g pack fresh basil, leaves picked and chopped

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6. Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the onion. Cook for 10 minutes until soft, then add the garlic and cook for a further minute. Add the passata, tomato puree and balsamic vinegar with some seasoning and simmer for 20 minutes, until thickened. 
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large pan over a medium heat. Wash the spinach, then add to the pan and wilt. Place in a sieve over a bowl to get rid of excess water then, once cooled, pat dry with kitchen paper and roughly chop. Set aside.
  3. In a blender, add your block of silken tofu and nutritional yeast, along with salt and pepper to taste. Blend until completely smooth, you may want to add a splash of plant milk depending on consistency.
  4. Place a generous teaspoon of the tofu mixture on a slice of Profusion Lentil Lasagne sheet and spread evenly. Roll this up and repeat with the remaining pasta and tofu mixture until you have 16 lasagne roll-ups.
  5. Once the tomato sauce has thickened to a good consistency, stir through most of the basil, reserving some to garnish. Pour this into the base of a roughly 21 x 21 cm baking dish and place the lasagne roll-ups in the dish, so they stand up. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until lightly golden and the pasta is cooked. Garnish with the remaining basil and serve.
