There was the request for more hearty meals - here one of my favorite ones: lasagne.
The problem we have with hearty meals is that the both of us are usually such ravenously hungry that we devour everything before even thinking of taking a picture. And recipes without pictures are quite boring, I think.
The nice little treats are easier to cope with as I normally have some time while the frosting or couverture tightens. But I will try to post more good and solid meals in future.
Usually each of us eats up 3 dishes, so that the family-sized lasagne (6 dishes) fits perfectly our needs. The list of ingredients is not that long and fulfilled with some Mediterranean vegetables as well as a few sheets of lasagne.
For 6 dishes:
1 can minced tomatoes
1 pack vegan Bolognese
1/2 red bell pepper
1 pack vegan cream e.g. "Oatcuisine" (8 fl. oz. / 250ml)
1 tablespoon margarine
2 tablespoons flour
salt, pepper, nutmeg, oregano
1/2 pack lasagne sheets
1/2 cup vegan cheese (50g)
For the tomato-sauce: chop the onion and stew it in some olive oil. Add the Bolognese, thereafter the canned tomatoes. Season to taste and time to add the chopped bell pepper. Found half of the sauce into a casserole and cover it with sheets of lasagne. Slice the zucchini and aubergine and roast them gently in some oil. They dont have to be done, just a bit browned. Flavor them afterwards with salt, pepper and oregano and layer them with some sheets of lasagne. Then disperse the remaining tomato-sauce on top and cover everything with a final pasta layer.
Heat the margarine and stir in the flour. Add bit by bit the cream.
Season the bechamel with nutmeg, salt and white pepper and give it across the lasagne. At last grate the cheese and scatter it on top.
Bake it at 360°F for about 45 minutes. Enjoy your meal!
