Bechamel Butternut Squash Lasagna

Updated: Dec 28, 2021

I hope you are enjoying this holiday season as much as I am! There’s something so wonderful about sharing love. Sometimes when i can’t be with family, I just have create my own little family. I realized that there were lots of friends without family in town this year. So I decided to make some vegan goodness to share with others who also didn’t have family.


I made a butternut squash lasagne using my muun chi CoCoFir. It’s a lot like the sauce that I created for the mac and muun chi.


You will need:


A small butternut squash - cut in half and clean out seeds. Put approximately

10 cloves of garlic to replace the seeds. Brush lightly with olive oil. Place face down on cookie sheets and roast til tender. About 30 min in a 425 degree oven with


1 cut up red bell pepper

1 small onion

on the same roasting pan surrounding the squash.


When the squash is tender, scoop out the insides. Save the skins for your veggie broth you may decide to make for tomorrow. Place the squash, the roasted garlic and veggies in a blender with


1/2 c muun chi CoCoFir

1/4 c nutritional yeast

1 cup cashews or if you are allergic to cashews try using 1 T chickpea miso instead

1/2 Tsp smoked paprika

salt and pepper.

Feel free to add water or broth if you find it’s too thick


Set sauce aside while you prepare the other layer:


6 cups of chopped mushroom. I used cremini and lions mane, but any would do.

8 cups of chopped kale. I used celery leaves. You may also use collard greens, or Swiss chard

1 cup chopped onion


saute the onion in 2 T. avocado oil. When translucent, add the mushroom and chopped dark green veggies. Sauté on medium for about 10 minutes, until tender. Drain.


Layer your veggie goodness, starting with a little of the sauce on the bottom.

Sauce

noodles (I used steamed celery leaves, but any noodle would be fine)

veggies

sauce

repeat, ending with sauce.


Bake at 350 for about 40 mIn, let cool for 5-7 min, cut and serve.

I hope my guests loved that feeling of family and the warmth of the earth’s goodness filling their bellies. Happy holidays to all and I do hope you enjoy the beauty that surrounds us every moment of every day~!! I love you!

I love to cook seasonly. Asparagus is at all the markets now, peaking April and May. Look for asparagus that is firm and bright green, the tips may be a little purplish. If its mushy or shriveling,

Avocados are packed with all kinds of goodness! I use it in place of butter in lots of my baking. Using it in a dressing adds to a thicker consistency and pairs well with the CoCoFir. This dressing
