- Make up a cheese sauce using
- 1/2 pint soya milk
- 2 level tablespoons cornflour
- 3 ounces strongly flavoured cheese or cream cheese
- lots of grated nutmeg
For a vegan dish you can make your favorite white sauce. Boil 4 oz lentils in water until soft (as a rough guide, cover them and add the same amount of water again). Fry a chopped onion and some garlic in the oil of your choice. Add a finely grated carrot and fry that too for a while. Add a can of chopped tomatoes. Add some (tablespoon or so) of tomato paste. Add some oregano or sweet mixed herbs. Add the lentils *and* the water they were cooked in. Add a spoon of yeast extract. Season with salt and pepper. While you are frying the rest of the stuff above put around 2/3 oz of TVP mince in a bowl with plenty of boiling water and some concentrated veg stock (vecon or stock cubes or yeast extract). When the other stuff is ready add the TVP mix instead of the lentils and adjust the seasonings. Just like any other lasagne. If you use the no pre-cook pasta make sure that the filling is sloppy so there's plenty of liquid to cook it. Stick it in the oven at gas 4 (electric 350) (fan 160) for about half an hour. The lentil version is particularly nice and freezes well. However it is very dry if you eat it the next day (or out of the freezer) and you will need a wet sauce to go with it. I prefer it dry.
