Béchamel sauce:

  • 20g flour
  • 250ml plant milk
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • nutmeg
  • lemon juice

Instructions

Cashew Ricotta:

  1. Add all cashew ricotta ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend/process until you get a smooth, creamy consistency. Taste test & add more plant milk/water & seasonings if need be.

Spinach Ricotta Filling:

  1. Thaw the spinach and remove excess liquid. Sauté the onions in oil until they’re caramelized.
  2. Add the spinach, onion & cashew ricotta to a bowl & mix with the seasonings (to taste). Set aside.

Tomato sauce:

  1. Heat oil in a pot & sauté the garlic & onion for 2-3min. Add the diced tomatoes & mix in the maple syrup, spices, and lemon juice (to taste). Bring the sauce to a boil, then reduce heat to low & let simmer for 10 more min.

Béchamel sauce:

  1. Add the vegan butter to a pot & start letting it melt. Slowly mix in the flour & cook over low heat for 2-3min. Continuously mix using a whisk.
  2. Little by little, add the plant milk while mixing (to avoid lumps).
  3. Bring to a boil & add spices & lemon juice to taste. Reduce heat & let it simmer over low heat for about 10min until the sauce thickens.

Cannelloni:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/360F.
  2. Fill the cannelloni using a piping bag or a small spoon. Spread the tomato sauce at the bottom of a baking tray, then add the filled cannelloni & top with the Béchamel sauce.
  3. Bake in the oven for approx. 20-30min, until the cannelloni are fully cooked.
  4. Remove the tray from the oven, let it cool a little & serve warm and enjoy.
