2 beetroots, peeled
1/2 onion
2 tbsp water
Spinach ricotta layer

300g baby spinach
2 tbsp milk
Pumpkin layer
700g pumpkin
1 tsp peanut butter
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

Other ingredients

100g vegan cheese
40ml hot water
1 tbsp olive oil
-Salt, to taste
-Pepper, to taste

Prepare the vegetables

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C.
  2. Roughly chop onion, beetroot and pumpkin. Transfer everything and cloves of garlic to a large baking tray. Drizzle with a little bit of olive oil and a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper. Toss until everything is evenly coated. Keep the different vegetables separate for easy separation later on. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until pumpkin and onion are tender.

Make the spinach ricotta layer

  1. Meanwhile, make the spinach ricotta layer. Place baby spinach in a microwave-safe container. Cook in a microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes or until wilted. Let cool slightly, then cut up the spinach a little using kitchen scissors. Stir in vegan ricotta and mix until combined. Season to taste with salt. Set aside.

Make the tomato layer

  1. Once the vegetables are done baking, remove from heat. Transfer half the onion and 2 cloves roasted garlic to a large nonstick skillet. Add the rest of the ingredients for the tomato layer. Simmer on medium heat for 10-15 minutes until thickened to pasta sauce consistency. Remove from heat and set aside.

Make the beetroot layer

  1. Add the roasted beetroots and the rest of the onion to a food processor. Process until smooth (or leave it slightly chunky if you prefer more texture). Season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside.

Make the pumpkin layer

  1. Add the roasted pumpkin, 2 cloves roasted garlic, peanut butter, nutmeg and water to a food processor. Process until smooth. Season to taste with salt and set aside.

Assemble

  1. In a large, deep baking dish, spread half of the tomato sauce at the bottom. Add a layer of lasagna sheets.
  2. Spread all the pumpkin mixture on top of the lasagna sheets. Add another layer of lasagna sheets.
  3. Spread all the spinach ricotta mixture on top of the lasagna sheets. Add another layer of lasagna sheets.
  4. Spread all the beetroot mixture on top of the lasagna sheets. Add another layer of lasagna sheets.
  5. Spread half of the rest of the tomato sauce on top of the lasagna sheets. Add another layer of lasagna sheets.
  6. Spread the rest of the tomato sauce on top and top with shredded vegan cheese.
  7. Pour a little bit of hot water into the four corners of the baking dish. This will help keep the the lasagna moist.
  8. Bake at 180 degrees celsius for 35-40 minutes.
  9. Remove from heat and cut into slices. Enjoy!
Notes
  • Leftovers will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.
  • To save time, feel free to prepare all the different layers ahead of time, keep them in separate containers in the fridge, and just assemble right before baking!
  • For convenience, you can use your favorite store-bought pasta sauce for the tomato layer instead of making it from scratch.
  • You can use cashew cheese instead of vegan ricotta.
