Rinse lentils & cook for about 25 minutes until soft. Drain, reserving the
stock.

Heat oil in a large skillet & saute onions for 3 minutes. Add carrots,
garlic & mushrooms & continue to saute for 10 minutes, stirring
occasionally to prevent burning. Add cooked lentils, tomatoes, tomato
paste, herbs & soy sauce. Add a little of the reserved stock if mixture is
too dry. Cover & cook for 20 minutes to ensure that the flavours are well
blended.

Meanwhile cook enough lasagna strips to make 3 layers. Cook only till al
dente.

BECHAMEL SAUCE: Combine the water, cashews, salt, pepper & nutmeg in the
blender & blend till smooth. Make the roux by heating the oil in a pot &
stirring in the flour when hot. Slowly add the cashew milk, add the bay
leaf & bring to a gentle boil, stirring constantly. When boiling, reduce
heat to very low & simmer for about 1 minute or until the sauce starts to
thicken. Set aside. Remove bay leaf before using.

Oil a casserole dish. Put a layer of lasagna in the bottom & layer with the
lentil mixture followed by the bechamel sauce. Repeat, ending with a layer
of bechamel. Top with shredded soy cheese if desired. Bake at 350F for 35
minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
