Perhaps the best snack ever! It’s loaded with vitamin c, beta carotenes and antioxidants. It’s also super tasty ;-) Some may dislike the bitter taste but that can be prevented. Just sprinkle some sugar or stevia.
Alright, going to be honest here. I don’t have the recipe for the lasagna. I just took what we had at home, but I’ll try to describe it in case anyone else wants to give it a try (or be inspired)!
Ingredients Pasta plates Ready-to-serve Green lentils (? or maybe it was red.. I can’t remember) Crushed tomatoes Chili Garlic Onion Light creme fraiche Carrot Spinach Béchamel sauce Salt and pepper
How to: Rinse the lentils in cold water. Dice the onion, carrot and garlic and fry it with some oil in a frying pan. Add the crushed tomatoes and chili. The creme fraiche is meant to be used if the chili got too strong, it will round of the flavor :-) Add the lentils. Allow to cook for about 5-10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper if you wish.
Heat up the béchamel sauce (I used a pre-made one) in a sauce pan, bringing it to a boil. Let it then simmer for about 5 minutes.
I used frozen spinach. If you do too, put the frozen spinach in another sauce pan on medium heat and cook until it isn’t frozen anymore ;-)
When everything is ready, layer the lentils with pasta plates, béchamel and spinach. Put in oven (200°c), 20 minutes. Serve :-)
White fiber pasta with spinache sauce and broccoli.
Ingredients ~ 4 portions
Pasta (as much as you’d like, and any kind you want) 1 cup Spinach 1/2 cup Creme fraiche Some cheese (I used mozzarella, but I think parmesan would be nice too) ~15 g 1/4 cup milk A garlic clove or some garlic powder Red pepper Chili powder Salt & pepper
How to do it Now, you can make this as easy or as complicated as you want. I made this all up while cooking (that’s how I like it, making up my own recipes) and therefore didn’t really measure to well.
Bring some water to a boil and add the pasta. If you’re using frozen spinach, heat it up in a sauce pan. When melted, add the creme fraiche and milk. I used low fat chili&paprika-flavored creme fraiche but if you’re having regular, just add some red pepper and chili to it. Fresh, frozen, powder.. whatever floats your boat ;) Add some garlic if you want. I just happened to find a jar of dried garlic and added some. ‘Cause I like garlic. Sprinkle with cheese (as earlier mentioned, I used mozzarella ‘cause that’s what we had in the fridge) and stir ‘til it’s melted. Season with salt and pepper if needed.
And the broccoli! I used frozen. Put them in another sauce pan, almost cover with water, bring to a boil. Let it boil ~2-3 minutes, then let ‘em have a cold shower.
