It’s been awhile since I’ve done a foodie post and one of the things on my list of 100 things for 2014 is learn a new recipe each month and blog about it. So this month it’s Thermomix Lasagne.
150 g cheese (a mix of Tasty & Parmesan)
lasagna sheets (your choice of fresh or dried)
- 1 onion, quartered
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 carrots, peeled and chopped into chunks
- 30 g oil (olive oil or whatever oil you use)
- 500 g minced meat
- 400 g can chopped tomato
- 30 g tomato paste
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cube beef stock
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp dried Italian spices
- 50 g Butter
- 80 g flour
- 600 g milk
- 1.5 tsp salt
Grate cheeses 10 sec on speed 8. Set aside. Rinse bowl
Chop carrots, onion & garlic cloves 5 sec on speed 5, scrape down sides and chop another 5 sec on speed 5.
Add oil & sauté 2 min, Varoma setting on speed 1.
Preheat oven to 200° C.
Add meat & cook 5 min, Varoma setting, reverse and speed soft (the one that looks like a spoon).
Add tomatoes, tomato paste, salt, stock cube, sugar & oregano and cook 12 min, 100°, reverse, speed 1-2.
Pour into a bowl & rinse out Thermo bowl.
Melt butter for 2 min, 100 °, speed 1.
Add flour & cook for 1 min, 100 °, speed 1.
Add milk & salt, scrape flour mixture from bottom through milk & mix for 2 sec, speed 5 to combine. Cook for 8 min, 100 °, speed 2. Check if all flour combined by scraping again with spatula, then briefly mix again for 2 sec, speed 5.
Spread some béchamel sauce in the bottom of a baking dish, line with lasagne sheets, top with béchamel again, sprinkle some cheese and then start layering meat, lasagne sheets, béchamel, cheese until top of dish is reached. Generously sprinkle cheese on top layer.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Lasagne is done when a toothpick easily pierces through the layers and the cheese is nicely browned. Let rest before serving. Serve with garlic bread
