Spinach, Tofu and Feta Lasagne






👌Dinner last night was a great hit. My daughter has recently discovered she likes the spinach and feta combo, so I made this lasagne, full of veg and using Haricot beans*. These are a really nice way to add pulses to a dish like this lasagne, without being noticed as they are tiny, soft and perfect. Pulses are great as they are high in fibre and protein and they add variety and balance to a meal like this.


💥It’s important that we all eat a diet high in fibre for good digestive health. Kids often miss this out of their diet. Constipation is a huge issue that I see often in women and children. So understanding how to add more fibre to your diet is a really vital part of optimal health. And this meal is a perfect way to eat a delicious and nourishing meal whilst feeling like you are eating something indulgent.


*Alternative to the beans, if you prefer, you can also use a block of firm tofu crumbled in, which works like magic with the ricotta and feta.


Recipe:

1 packet of purple sprouting broccoli, chopped finely and steamed

3 x 100g bags spinach, wilted, drained and chopped

1 carton of ricotta

1 pack of feta

2 tbsp grated parmesan

1 tin haricot beans

2 onions chopped and roasted

Salt & pepper to taste


Blend everything in a bowl


Tomato sauce:

1 red onion

1 red pepper

1 tin tomatoes

1 tbsp tomato puree

2 tsp oregano

3 cloves garlic

1 slug of red wine


In a pan fry the onion and pepper in some olive oil for 5 mins until starts to soften. Add all the other ingredients, bring to a boil, put on the lid and simmer for 20 -30 mins. Blend with a hand blender.


Layer lasagne:

Thin layer of tomato sauce

A layer of lasagne sheets

The spinach mixture

A thin layer of tomato sauce ( I use a pastry brush to gently cover the whole area)

A layer of lasagne sheets

The rest of the spinach mixture

A layer of lasagne sheet

The res of the tomato sauce

A good sprinkle of parmesan, salt and pepper





👏A wholesome and seriously delicious family dinner.
