Budget Series: Green Vegetable Lasagne


Serves: 4 | Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 45 mins

Back in our own kitchen and not that we are vegetarian or vegan, but we are aiming to try out some meatless alternatives to classic dishes like this! With broccoli, spinach and kale, this vegetable lasagne is almost healthy if you ignore the amazing cheddar cheese dashed all over the pasta sheets. 

The verdict: nothing beats the classic, but it doesn't take away from the great taste and the fact that we'll most definitely be making this again! Pair it with a salad with your favourite dressing to give it that extra dimension! 



Ingredients:

- 350g broccoli, broken into florets
- 100g kale
- 100g spinach
- 30g unsalted butter
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 2 tbsp plain flour
- 650ml milk
- 75g Cheddar, coarsely grated (£2)
- 200g lasagne sheets (£1)

Optional salad
- 85g bag crispy salad
- 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- ½ tbsp cider vinegar

Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Bring a pan of water to the boil. Add the broccoli, cook for 3 mins, then add the kale. Cook for 3 mins, drain, then stir through the spinach to wilt. Rinse under cold water, then drain thoroughly.

2. Heat the butter in a pan over a medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 min before adding the flour. Cook for 1 min, then gradually stir in the milk. Simmer for 2-3 mins until slightly thickened, then stir in 50g Cheddar.

3. Spoon a quarter of the cheese sauce on the bottom of a square proof baking dish. Cover with a third of the lasagne sheets, then top with half the veg. Add another quarter of the sauce, another third of the lasagne sheets, then the remaining veg. Top this with another quarter of the sauce, followed by the remaining lasagne sheets, then remaining sauce. Sprinkle with the remaining Cheddar.

4. Cover with foil and bake for 40 mins or until golden and bubbling, removing the foil for the last 10 mins.

5. Meanwhile, combine the oil and vinegar, season, then drizzle over the salad. Serve with the lasagne.

  3. Lasagna is one of my all time favourite! I love it! I usually make a salmon (of tuna) and spinach one when I'm not making the original recipe, so this is definitely going on my list of dishes to make :) it looks so delicious!

  14. I do love a good vegetable lasagne! I definitely agree that you can *almost* call this a healthy meal, so long as you've got plenty of nice salad and don't think about all that cheese too much, you're golden haha! I must say that I am partial to a few tasty slices of garlic bread with my lasagne, however, so that might detract from the healthiness even further! But sssshhhh, we won't tell anyone! ;-) I actually have a big bag of spinach in my fridge at the moment and I certainly don't have enough recipe ideas to use it all up just yet, so I'm going to have to put together a lasagne of my own! Everything looks delicious as always!

  15. I love lasange. I'm not a huge fan of brocolli but I do like kale and spinach so I would be up for trying this dish. Thanks for sharing it! That cheese looks yum though! I'm not vegan or vegetarian either but I am also trying to eat different meals and some without meat too.
