What you need:
2 garlic cloves
1/4 red cabbage
1/4 green cabbage
2 tins of chopped tomatoes
4 tbsp red lentils
salt pepper and oregano
4 gluten free pasta lasagne sheets
50g plain flour
What you do:
1. Chop the vegetables up small
2. Put 2 tbsp oil in a large pan and add the onion and garlic
3. Cook onion and garlic until soft, for about 5 minutes
4. Add the carrots, cabbages and lentils, cook for another 5 minutes
5. Add the tinned tomatoes, add a little water to one of the tins to wash the tomatoes out into the pan
6. Leave to cook for 15 minutes
7. Make the white sauce. Put the butter in a pan and melt it gently.
8. Add the flour and stir. Keep stirring.
9. Add the milk a bit at a time and keep stirring.
10. Keep stirring until the sauce starts to go thick and bubble.
11. Take the sauce off the heat and leave to one side
12. The veggie mixture should be soft now, add salt, pepper and oregano - check it tastes nice
13. Use a large baking pan to put the lasagne in
14. Put a layer of veggie mix on the bottom of the pan
15. Add a layer of pasta lasagne sheets
16. Add some white sauce
17. Add another layer of veggie mix
18. Add another layer of pasta lasagne sheets
19. Put the white sauce over the top
20. Grate cheese over the top and put into a hot oven until bubbling and brown on top
It doesn't matter what vegetables you use, use whatever you like. And it doesn't matter what cheese you use - or you can leave it out altogether if you don't like it. I used gluten free flour and pasta, but you don't have to.
