Pumpkin, Kale & Lentil Lasagne- Not to be missed!

Pumpkin, Kale & Lentil Lasagne- Not to be missed!
Serves: 6 - 8 serves
It's not easy being cheesey! Especially with approx 70% of the world's population being lactose intolerant 😉 This creamy lasagne is just what you need to kick a bad cheese habbit, as the pumpkin/nutritional yeast sauce will satisfy any craving! Dairy free, gluten free, vegan and without any store-bought sauces full of who-knows-what, this is the lasagne for you that your body (and family/friends) will love! Serve as a main with a side salad or some roast veggies. You can jazz it up with fresh herbs, chilli, or even a layer or two of napoliana sauce for variety.


For: 6 - 8 serves


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C. Scatter the cubed pumpkin onto a baking paper lined tray and bake for 30-40 mins, until soft.
  2. Remove from oven and allow to cool (leave oven on).
  3. Whilst pumpkin is baking, boil the lasagne sheets as instructed on package. Drain and set aside.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large pan or wok, cook minced garlic and onion in a little coconut oil.
  5. After 3 mins, add in the kale. Stir-fry for a further 5 minutes, until softened.
  6. Drain and rinse your lentils. Throw them into the pan combine well. Remove from heat.
  7. Once the pumpkin has cooled, remove skins.
  8. Throw pumpkin into a high-powdered blender with the coconut milk, nutritional yeast, lemon and salt and pepper. Blend until smooth.
  9. In a deep baking dish, pour an even layer of the pumpkin sauce first.
  10. Next, add a row of lasagne sheets.
  11. Spread another layer of the pumpkin sauce over the sheets, followed by a layer of the kale/lentil mix.
  12. Continue this pattern - lasagne sheets, sauce, vegetables - until ingredients run out. I like to leave some veggies to sprinkle on top.
  13. Feel free to add any fresh herbs you choose.
  14. Cover the dish with aluminium foil and bake for 25 minutes.
  15. Remove foil and bake for another 20 minutes.
  16. Once cooked, allow to cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving warm!
