Dairy Free Pumpkin and Spinach Lasagne.

Dairy Free Pumpkin and Spinach Lasagne

One of the big conundrums of my life was how do I eat lasagne with a dairy free husband. I love lasagne, I love it with meat, I love it vegetarian, however it comes I just love lasagne.  So after much thought I came up with a solution and invented the following recipe.

You can make this with pumpkin and spinach or you can make it with a traditional bolognaise sauce.  I do either. Todays is Pumpkin and Spinach. No measurements.  You make it what size you need.

Ingredients

Roasted, mashed Pumpkin and cooked Spinach

Lasagne Sheets,  6 cloves Garlic

and the Sauce that makes it all possible.

Soubiose Sauce  

made with Soy Milk

Souboise Sauce is a traditional white sauce made with Onion.

Saute a large onion in margerine/butter until transparent.  Add 2tbs cornflour stir through, add 2 cups of Soy Milk gradually stirring to prevent lumps. You can replace 1 cup of Soy with 1 cup of chicken stock if you like a more savoury flavour.   Bring to boil and simmer for a few minutes till thickened.   If you are preparing this early press clingwrap onto the top of the sauce and put in the fridge to cool. (the clingwrap stops a skin forming).

Lasagne

Spread three chopped cloves of garlic on the base of your dish.  A layer of mashed Pumpkin, Lasagne sheet, A layer of Spinach, Lasagne Sheet, A layer of Souboise sauce, Lasagne sheet.

Repeat layers finishing with Sauce.

Topping

Put bread, remaining three cloves of garlic and parsley into blender with a splodge of olive oil.   Turn into breadcrumbs and top Lasagne. Bake for 1 hour or so till crumbs are brown and crunchy and pasta is cooked.

Lasagne is great for busy mums, I cooked the pumpkin two days ago when I roasted vegies for dinner. Yesterday we made the sauce and cooked the spinach. All I did today was make the topping and put everything together. It took about 15 or 20 mins.

Served with a salad, it was an easy and delicious meal, Silverbeet, Pumpkin and Parsley all came from the garden. Leafy green.
