Hello Geek Food! Long time reader of the food porn poster here, first time poster! You will probably find my cooking pretty rustic. Depending on how lazy efficient i feel, sometimes i start from scratch, sometimes i cheat. I rarely measure anything, therefore i am a terrible pastry baker. Thought i'd make a contribution. First up! Vegetarian Lasagna. Don't get any bad first impressions. I love meat! But, as you will see, there are great alternatives to it! Alot of these quantities will depend on how much you want to make. I always make a dish full and take any left overs into work (30x50x10) So, what will we need? The Sauce: 1 jar of any plain old tomato sauce 1 can of diced tomatoes (You can make your own tomato sauce from scratch. I add the diced tomatoes because i barely have enough with a jar sometimes) You could also fry off some onion and garlic and add it to the sauce if you like too) Small bag of mushrooms 2-3 Carrots 2-3 zucchini You don't want to run out of sauce when making lasagna, The lasagna sheets depend on the sauce for cooking properly. if you make too much, freeze it and use it as a vegitarianised base. The Layers: 1/4 to 1/2 of a pumpkin 1-2 Eggplants Packet of Lasagna sheets Tub of ricotta cheese (i think they come in 500g tubs) Grated cheese (traditionally mozzarella+parmesan mix. I just use any cheese that i think would melt nicely, some times i use edam+pecorino mix) Method: First off, get that oven cooking, 180 BAM! Throw your tomato jars/cans into a pot and get it to a simmer. You could add seasoning to the sauce if you want, Oregano/Basil. Julienne the carrots and zucchini and get those shrooms into some nice slices. Put the carrots, zucchinis and mushrooms in the sauce pot and let them cook for a bit untill the vegies become soft. While you're waiting for the sauce. Slice up the eggplant and pumpkin. Sauce should be done. Pour some of it into the base of your dish. This will stop the lasagna sheets from sticking to the bottom. Add a layer of lasagna sheets, doesn't matter if they overlap a little. Add a layer of ricotta and make sure to spread it to all the corners of the dish. Add a layer of eggplant and pumpkin. Add a bit of your melty cheese mix Add a layer of sauce Add another layer of ricotta More lasage sheets....and so on, untill you reach the top of your dish. Top the dish with some sauce and the left over melty cheese mix. Throw it all in the oven. You know it's cooked when the top layer of lasagna becomes firm/golden. Click to view full size!
