1 vegetable stock cube

2 cauliflower heads, broken into florets

2 tbsp low fat milk or unsweetened soya milk

Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg

9 dried egg-free lasagne sheets

50g grated cheese of choice, white cheddar works well or fresh mozzarella torn into pieces

In a large pan, heat the oil, add the onion, carrot and celery, and gently cook for 10-15 minutes until soft.

Add the garlic, cook for a few minutes, then stir in the lentils and corn flour.

Add the tomatoes plus a tin of water, the oregano, stock cube and some salt and pepper.

Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Grease a baking dish lightly with some oil.

Cook the cauliflower in a pan of boiling water for 10 minutes until tender.

Drain, then purée with the milk using a food processor. Season well and add the nutmeg and mix through.

Spread a third of the lentil mixture over the base the prepared baking dish.

Cover with a single layer of lasagne, breaking the sheets to fit.

Add another third of the lentil mixture, then spread a third of the cauliflower purée on top, followed by a layer of pasta.

Top with the last third of lentils and lasagne sheets, followed by the remaining purée. Scatter the cheese.

Cover loosely with foil and bake for 35-45 minutes, removing the foil for the final 10 minutes of cooking to allow the cheese to bubble.
