vegetable bake

I’ve had a lot of requests for some vegan meals. This vegan vegetable bake is one of my favorites! I know it doesn’t look that pretty (I did try my best lol) but it actually has some much flavor and tastes much better than it looks.

One of the great things is that you can use whatever vegetables you like. And if you want to add meat, you can! So feel free to adapt the recipe as you feel like :)

I hope you enjoy it, and I will continue to post more of my vegan meals!


  • 1 large eggplant/aubergine
  • 1 large red pepper/capsicum
  • 1 large white potato
  • 1/3 head broccoli
  • 5 large mushrooms
  • Olive oil (optional)
  • Salt and pepper


  • 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked in water for at least 3 hours
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (can exclude this but adds a great flavor, plus it’s high in B12 for all the vegans)
  • Salt and pepper

  • 1 can crushed tomato
  • 1 small onion
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 180C/360F.
  2. Cut up all your vegetables.
  3. Lay them out on an oven tray (or two) lined with bake paper. You can add a bit of olive oil if you like (I find the potatoes and mushrooms taste better with a bit of olive oil), and salt and pepper.
  4. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until they are cooked through.
  5. While the vegetables are baking, make your white and tomato sauces. To make the white sauce, put all ingredients in a high speed blender and mix. It’s as easy as that!
  6. To make the tomato sauce, put the crushed tomato and onion in a pan and cook on a low heat until the tomatoes soften and the liquid thickens up a bit.
  7. Layer it all in a baking tray. I put mine into a cake tin and this made 2 serves, but you can always make up a bigger batch!
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  9. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Makes 2 serves.
