Vegetarian lasagne

After the classic lasagna lasagna with mince meat and tomato sauce (too see it click here https://annieandjeff.com/en/lasagne/), I would also like to introduce to you its vegetarian analogue. With the vegetarian version, the options are almost endless – with eggplant, peppers, mushrooms, spinach and whatever else you like. All options are a good choice and you can’t go wrong 🙂
Look at our eggplant and mushroom option – a super delicious temptation. Well, the preparation of the sheets makes the cooking a little longer, but it’s worth it. Here’s how we did it 🙂

And now look at the recipe 🙂

DIRECTIONS:

PREPARATION OF FRESH PASTA
1

Measure the right amount of flour and sift it into a bowl. Make a hole in the flour and pour the eggs. Stir the eggs, gradually absorbing the flour. Once the dough becomes difficult to mix, pour it on a floured surface and continue kneading until all the flour is absorbed.

2

A non-sticky hard dough is obtained.

3

Put the dough in a bowl and let it rest for about 30 minutes to relax. Cover it with fresh storage foil to prevent it from crusting and drying out. In the meantime you can cook the stew for the lasagna.

I used my new pasta machine to roll the lasagna sheets. At first it took me a little while to figure out how it worked out, but after a few sheets I was already acting like a pro. If you made a nice hard dough and the pieces you put in the machine are generously sprinkled with flour, you won't have any problem rolling it. If you do not have a pasta machine, which is very likely, you can roll the dough by hand. The shape of the sheets is not important at all. The sheets may then overlap during the construction of the lasagna. The important thing is not to fold them again after they have been rolled, as they are likely to stick and have to be rolled again.

PREPARATION OF THE VEGETABLES SAUCE
5

Cut the mushrooms into slices.

6

Cut the eggplant into cubes about 1.5 cm in size.

7

Pour the eggplant in a hot pan. Fry it for about 5 minutes until it changes color slightly.

8

Add the mushrooms. Stir.

9

Once the mushrooms have softened, add the tomatoes. Season with the spices.

10

Let the mixture simmer for 5-10 minutes on low heat, stirring occasionally. Keep the sauce relatively rare, because in this recipe, we do not cook the lasagna sheets, but rely on the sauce to cook them.

11

Be careful not to over-salt. If there is salt in your tomatoes, it is best not to put more.

PREPARATION OF THE BECHAMEL SAUCE
12

Put the butter in a casserole on medium heat.

13

After the butter has melted, pour the flour. Stir vigorously because it fries very quickly. Make sure it does not burn. The mixture should have a golden color, which is obtained after a maximum of 1-2 minutes.

14

Start pouring the milk (it may be cold) into portions - for example first about 200 ml. Once the flour has absorbed the first part of the milk, then pour about the same quantity. Thus no lumps in the sauce are obtained. Finally, pour in all the milk.

15

Season with salt and pepper.

16

Let the sauce simmer for about 10-15 minutes on low fire, stirring occasionally, so it doesn't stick on the bottom. Once the sauce has a little thicker consistency, it is ready. Even if you find it quite liquid at this stage, do not worry, after it will thicken further, and it is not good for béchamel sauce to look like a glue.

PREPARATION OF THE LASAGNA
17

Before placing the first lasagna sheet, spread a thin layer of béchamel on the bottom. This prevents it from sticking and taking out in a decent square piece when serving.

18

Then place a layer of lasagna sheets.

20

Pour béchamel sauce over the sauce with a spoon. It is no problem if there are empty spaces. When baking it will distribute wonderfully.

21

Sprinkle with grated cheese on béchamel. You can use mozzarella, parmesan, or any other cheese you like.

22

Continue to arrange the layers of lasagna as shown above until the products are finished. The important thing is to cover the top sheet with béchamel and sprinkle with grated cheese.

23

Bake for about 30 minutes at 200 degrees until the surface of the lasagna gets golden. Serve the lasagna while still warm. Bon appetit!
