Vegan Gluten-Free Lentil Lasagne With Cashew Cream Sauce

Meatless Mondays

This gluten-free, vegan lasagne is a fantastic alternative to the meaty, dairy laden versions. It’s tasty, filling and full of healthy protein and nutritional goodness. In this version I use twirly rice fusilli pasta instead of flat lasagne pasta sheets. You can, of course, buy pasta sheets and use them instead. Gluten free pasta sheets are more specialist and expensive (here in the UK at least), so I prefer to…
