Add the tomato paste, tomato cubes and sugar. Allow the sauce to simmer uncovered for 15 minutes so that excess liquid can evaporate.

Step 2

Cut in slices the eggplant, the zucchini and the potatoes into ½ inches. Salt them and place them in the oven for 20 minutes in 180 °C

In a saucepan melt the butter over low heat, using a whisk. Add flour and whisk continuously to make a smooth paste. Add warmed almond milk to mixture and whisk continuously again. Simmer over low heat until it curdled a bit, but does not boil! Remove for the heat and stir in the beaten eggs, the nutmeg, salt and pepper. Return to heat and stir for 1 more minute. Remove from heat and add 100gr cheese.

Step 4

Put the potatoes in a baking tray. Cover them with a layer of eggplant and zucchini slices. Add the mince of soya and sprinkle with 100gr of cheese. Top with another layer of eggplant, zucchini slices and the rest of the cheese. Pour the white creamy sauce and bake in a 180°C oven for 45 minutes or until the sauce gets a nice golden brown color. Wait for 15–20 minutes before slicing and serving.
