This Vegan Lentil & Courgette Parmigiana is a nutritious and delicious meal for the whole family. Have a healthy and hearty dish made in only twenty minutes!

You can’t have parmigiana without a layer of cheesy goodness to top it all off. By using nutritional yeast, which has a cheesy flavour, and mixing it with garlic granules, you can sprinkle your cheesy mix over your dish and let it melt into a vegan friendly cheese-like topping.

Some Helpful Tips

To get the best tasting Vegan Lentil & Courgette Parmigiana, I got my puy lentils from Merchant Gourmet. These puy lentils provide a good source of protein as well as adding a delicious peppery flavour to the dish. I also used Italian Organic Chopped Tomatoes from Mr Organic which have no added salt or sugar.
