Hi folks I hope you are all staying safe and keeping well during this Coronavirus Crisis. I was tested because I had some of the symptoms and also have a low immune system, lucky for me the result was Corvid-19 NEGATIVE.
The supermarket shelves are looking empty. I did manage to buy a Silverside/Corned Beef which I plan to slow cook tomorrow.
Today I fancied a meal of Lasagne. I couldn’t buy any beef mince at the shops. I remembered I had a small amount of beef pieces in the freezer for a stew so I minced them up.
I got out the large electric fry pan, browned the mince in a small drizzle of oil. I then added the following;
Chopped up leeks and celery Grated carrots and sweet potato A tin each of diced tomatoes and Mexican three Bean mix 2 cups of cooked lentils. I also added some powdered corriander, turmeric and roasted cumin. I am not keen on too much spice or chilies. I then added enough water to cover and then simmered it for 45 minutes.
After it was cooked I tried a small bowl of it……yummy. I then made a white sauce, added tasty cheese and nutmeg and then layered it into a dish ready for the lasagne. I had the oven preheated at 180 degrees and then cooked it for 30 minutes.
While the lasagne was cooking I put the remaining mince mixture into one person serve freezer bags.
The lasagne is ready and smells delicious.
I can assure you it was lovely, I had two helpings 😋😋👍🙂 and there’s plenty left for tomorrow or to freeze .
