Method – vegetable prep and preparing lasagne
The first thing you want to start off with is preparing your vegetables! To prepare the vegetables, you will want to;
- Peel and finely chop both onion and garlic
- Wash and slice your mushrooms
- wash and cut your courgette into brunoise
- wash and cut your broccoli into florets
- wash, peel, then rewash your carrots and cut them into brunoise
Once you have done that, heat up oil in a pot or a pan and sauté the onion and garlic for 2 minutes, add the mushroom and courgette and continue to sauté for an additional 3 minutes! Add the broccoli, oregano, chopped tomatoes, carrots, puree, water and stock and
bring to the boil and then stew gently for 10 minutes.
Once you are waiting on the veg to stew, we are going to start on the sauce. Start off by grating your cheese onto a plate, then separate it into 3 equal bundles.
Place your margarine and flour into a small pot or a pan and gently heat it, on a very low heat or flame. Stir it until it becomes a paste, making a roux. Gradually add the milk until there are no lumps, and the milk has went a creamy colour.
Add in two of your bundles of cheese, and leave the last one for later! Set your sauce aside once it is ready (it should be thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon)
Get a lasagne dish and put the bottom layer filled with 1/3 of your veg mix! Then add a lasagne sheet and 1/3 of your cheese sauce.
Then on top of that, add another 1/3 of the veg mix, a pasta sheet and 1/3 of the white sauce.
And for a final time, on top of the last layer add another 1/3 vegetable mix, pasta sheet and then add the rest of your white sauce. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top, and pop your dish into the oven!
Bake it for 25 minutes, until it is golden brown on top, and then it is ready for you to eat and enjoy!
