One of my flatmates moved out yesterday. Tin-eyed Tine and me created a veggie Lasagne as a farewell diner. (He moved to a street only a few blocks from our flat, but we will definitely miss you, män!)
I thought I'd share it, it was so yummy and easy and fun - as T. and me always have a who-makes-the-larger-mess-contest
when we cook a meal. By the way- the boys hate Tofu, and they did'nt realize that it was no real mince... hahahahaha!
(serves two very hungry men and two hungry girls)
400g Veggie mince
400g canned sliced tomatoes (as for pizza)
4 carrots (finely chopped)
1 big onion (finely chopped)
black pepper, cayenne pepper chilli powder, paprika, salt, oregao, rosemary
1 tbsp live oil
--> mix well in a large bowl.
Prepare one sachet instant bechamel or make one yourself (bit of butter in a pan, melt, DON'T BURN!, add a bit of plain flour, STIRRRRRR, and then add a bit of milk, STIRRRRRRRRRRRR until you die. Take from stove, let cool a bit)
And last but not least, have ready loads of grated cheese, about 200-300g (emmental, gouda, parmesan, pecorino).
You will need two medium sized lasagne pans.
First layer: mince mixture
second layer: bechamel ( only a bit spread on top of the mince part)
third layer: cheese
fourth layer: lasagne sheets
Start again with mince, repeat other two (haha, sounds like a crochet pattern now)
End with cheese.
For the bechamel: Use sunflower oil instead of butter and plant based milk of your choice.
Instead of cheese: Soak 2 cups cashews for about two hours, rinse. Mix them with 1 package silken tofu (about 200g), salt, pepper, dash of nutmeg, 2 tbsps nutri yeast, 1 clove garlic. Puree with food blender. If you like, you can make a bit more of this and use instead of bechamel, too.
Let cook in the oven for about 40 minutes at 200°C until crust is crisp and looks like fair caramel.
Now don't burn your tongue, baby!
Goes very well with a simple rucola salad with balsamico vinaigrette.
Hope you like it, ladyboys.
Now I need a bit of sleep, got tattooed again today and it F***s a bit... Pics tomorrow, here, for sure.
Love you all!
