 Bechamel:

  •  Salt, as needed

 
 instructions: 

  1. Mix cornstarch into cold plant milk, stir well with    a whisk.

Lasagna:

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C 
  2. Layer the ingredients in a suitable oven pan – start with bechamel.
  3. Last layer should be „Mozarella“ sauce. I also added some of my homemade cashew parmesan which I still had in my fridge.
  4. Bake for about 30 min till golden brown.
  5. Remove from oven, set aside for 5-7 min.
  6. Cut into pieces and garnish with fresh parsley and basil (I added chili flakes as well)
