Vegan Spinach and 'Ricotta' Cannelloni step by step

  1.

Store other half for other meals..
  2. Marinate crumbled tofu in onion, garlic, and lemon juice for 1 hour…blend cashews, yeast, yogurt and salt…lightly fry tofu mixture over light heat until onions are clear. Allow to cool slightly before combining with cashew mixture in a medium bowl….add shredded spinach and nutmeg…stir to combine…spoon filling onto the lasagne squares and roll them up..
  3. Saute chopped onion, garlic, and finely chopped silverbeet stems (if using) for 1-2 minutes….put a thin layer of passata sauce along bottom of a rectangular casserole dish…add remainder of passata to the onion mix…shake a bit of water in the jar to remove all sauce and add to frypan…simmer for 5-10 minutes..
