You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy this delicious vegetable lasagne. It's flavoursome, filling and full of nutrients.
The base of the lasagne is made from layers of zucchini, pumpkin and sweet potato which provide B vitamins, vitamins A and C, manganese, potassium, magnesium, antioxidants and fibre. Passata (especially if you’re making your own or going for a really simple one which is about 99.9% tomatoes) will be a great source of vitamin K and the phytochemical lycopene, which is a powerful antioxidant.
The creamy delicious bechamel is a nutrient powerhouse. The bulk of it is made from cauliflower and silken tofu. Cauliflower contains some powerful antioxidants including sulforaphane, which is a well-studied antioxidant associated with a lowered risk of lots of chronic illnesses. Some of the other amazing nutrients found in cauliflower include Vitamins C, K, B6, Folate, Pantothenic acid, Potassium and Manganese. The silken tofu provides a source of protein, calcium and iron. We’ve also included our Wholefood Pantry Nutritional Savoury Flakes add delicious flavour and heaps of nutrients (they are a great source of all of your B vitamins, calcium, iron, zinc and potassium). So layer the bechamel on generously!
