lasagna – vegetarian style

For those of you who like American Football, you know that Sunday is game day. Here in Denmark they broadcast the games live (meaning pretty much in the middle of the night!). We have our friend Kristian over for dinner and then the guys get into a comfy position on the couch and enjoy hours of football. So manly!

I love taking care of the two by making manly food. Well, most of the times. Tonight we’ll have a girly dish: vegetarian lasagna. I tried this recipe in school and fell totally in love with it.

6 portions:

1 onion, finely chopped

1-? cloves garlic (see, I would add 5 – it’s totally up to you)

1 1/2 tbs. olive oil

8 oz. (250g) mushrooms, sliced

1 can peeled tomatoes, chopped

1 small can tomato puree

2 tsp. oregano

2 tsp. basil

14 oz. (400g) carrots, shredded

8 oz. (250g) leek, sliced

12 lasagna noodles, whole wheat would be nice here

8 oz. (250g) mornay sauce

4 oz. (125g) grated cheese

salt and pepper to taste

Combine onion, garlic and olive oil in a sauté pan and cook over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes. Stir and add leeks and carrots. Add tomatoes, tomato puree and herbs. Turn down the heat and let simmer for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 400°F (200° C). Spread a little bit of mornay sauce on the bottom of a baking pan. Put a layer of lasagna noodles down first, add 1/3 of the vegetable sauce and top it with a bit of mornay sauce. Repeat two more times. You wanna end with a layer of lasagna noodles, topped with cheese and lots of mornay sauce. Cook for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool 5-10 minutes before serving. Serve it with some whole wheat bread and a fresh salad.

I will add a picture later.

food tasting I

With one week left on my food analysis report, I arranged a food tasting last night! Friends from both my and Morten’s flagfootball team came to lend me their well-trained taste buds. After tasting three different tomato soups, we enjoyed some home made chili and watched an NFL game. A night well spent!
