Brinjal Lasagne

Mince Ingredients
Mince +- 300g
1 onion
chopped mushrooms
1 grated carrot
1 tin tomatoes
3 Tbs tomatoe paste (I used about 5Tbs tomatoe sauce because I didn't have paste)

Cheese Sauce Ingredients
1 cup grated cheddar
3 Tbs flour
3 Tbs butter
1 cup milk

Other Ingredients
3 brinjals (I used 2 and was a bit short) 
1/2 cup grated gouda
1/4 cup lentils (optional)

Mince Method
  • Fry the chopped onion and mince until the mince has browned
  • Put in the tinned tomatoes, tomatoe paste and the lentils 
  • After a while add the rest of the veg and and top up with boiling water (I also threw in some white wine)
  • Simmer for as long as you'd like (I let mine simmer for about 30mins while I was preparing everything else) 
Cheese Sauce
  • On a low heat melt the butter and flour
  • Add the milk and cheese and stir until the cheese has melted
Lasagne Method
  • Fry the brinjals until browned - Do not use any oil when frying
  • In a baking tray add a layer of the mince followed by a layer of brinjals and then the cheese sauce
  • Repeat layers and top with the grated gouda
  • Grill until cheese has browned.
Warning: This meal is very addictive

I ate half the lasagne at 1 sitting (which serves 4+)
