4 servings


  • 1/2 tbsp oil
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 1/4 tsp sea salt or less/more to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup dry red lentils
  • 5 cups water or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup plant-based milk or cream
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 6 lasagna noodles broken into pieces (you can use gluten-free noodles)
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/3 cup cashew butter
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Red pepper flakes (optional for added spice)
  • Vegan ricotta or mozzarella to garnish (optional)
  • Fresh herbs (e.g. parsley or basil) to garnish


  • In a sieve, rinse lentils under running water, set aside.
  • Chop the onion and garlic.
  • Heat oil in a large pot and sauté the onion for about 3-4 minutes over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté for a further one minute.
  • Add all spices (Italian seasoning, onion powder, paprika, sea salt, black pepper), the lentils, tomato sauce, tomato paste, cashew butter, and the vegetable broth or water. Stir with a whisk and bring to a boil.
  • Meanwhile, break the lasagna noodles into smaller pieces. Once the soup boils add the lasagna noodles and cook for about 9-10 minutes or until the noodles are al dente.
  • Finally, add the plant-based milk (or cream), the lemon juice, and nutritional yeast. Turn off the heat.
  • Taste and adjust the seasonings. Add more salt, pepper, Italian herbs as needed. You can also add red pepper flakes or hot sauce for a spicier soup!
  • Serve immediately and garnish with fresh herbs and vegan ricotta cheese. Enjoy!
  • The soup will thicken over time, as the noodles will absorb a lot of the liquid. Simply add more vegetable broth if you want to eat leftovers the next day. Store covered in the fridge for up to 5 days.
