LASAGNE: The Quick and Easy Cousin!!

I have watched and tasted Traditional Lasagne that is cooked All day. It’s true! It’s Delicious but do we have the time in today’s modern culture to cook all day? Do we cook for 20 or 30 or 40 people who just happen to be all satisfied with the same meal? It’s hard to find places where this still happens in today’s modern and fast paced world. 

Let’s have a go at a far Easier and Quicker Cousin to the traditional. For more Home-Style recipes like this which are Quick and Easy, Wholesome and simply Delicious download Cooking Pot the iPhone App here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cookingpot/id586052832?mt=8

Beef Lasagne – Cooking Pot’s Quick and Easy Cousin

OK this recipe does take longer than 30 minutes but this is also an opportunity to cook more!! Refrigerate or Freeze for later as a Main Meal or divide into Lunch portions when needed. When you feel like Lasagne simply reheat, add a salad and Who-La!!

All those busy days can now be stress-free and you’ll find more pennies in your pocket as an added bonus! Please use Organic or home grown ingredients whenever possible.

500g minced beef

1 onion, chopped

oil for cooking

375g lasagna sheets

600ml thickened cream

1 cup cheddar cheese, grated

herb finely chopped ie rosemary, oregano

Method

  1. In a fry pan cook the onion and mince.
  2. Reduce heat and add pasta sauce and seasoning. If making your own sauce place ingredients in separate saucepan with oil and cook until soft.
  3. Place cream in a saucepan and stir with cheese salt and pepper and nutmeg. Stir and reduce a little.
  4. Place a tiny bit of meat sauce and spread in a baking tray to prevent the pasta sheets from sticking. Layer pasta sheets, meat and sauce. Sprinkle with extra cheese and herbs and bake in a moderate oven for 45 minutes or until done.

This is one recipe where I add heaps of veggies and make as much as will fit in my oven. One is always frozen and one is left in the fridge for a quick lunch. After all that lasagne I have a 2-3 month break but having said that let’s ‘step out of the box’, there are some great variations that don’t necessarily contain meat or tomato!

Method

  1. Wash and dry all veggies with a tea-towel. Process all veggies except ginger. Process coriander last.
  2. Grate ginger.
  3. In a small mixing bowl mix ginger, sake, sesame oil and potato starch to form a paste.
  4. In a large bowl combine veggie mix, potato paste and quinoa.
  5. To make dumplings: put a teaspoon amount on the pastry, use a bit a water on the edges and squeeze the pastry together.
  6. To cook the Gyoza: Mix 1 ½ tspn flour with 200ml water and set aside. Grill gyoza in a frying pan on 1 side, then turn and add the flour/water mix. Close the lid and steam on low.
  7. Once cooked remove lid until water evaporates. This leaves them crispy. Drizzle with sesame oil and place on a serving dish.
  8. Serve with Vinegar/Soy Dipping Sauce. 1 part Rice vinegar to 1 part Soy Sauce or vary proportions to taste.

 

There are a few steps here but it’s sure worth it! I usually make at least 90 and freeze them. Best frozen before they are cooked. They are fast to defrost and easy to cook up!

Japanese Gyozas are also Healthy, delicious, vegan, glutenfree
