How to Make Special Vegetarian Lasagna with Greens

Everyone knows Lasagna with Meat Sauce, the classic one. I like it very much and I always cook it in Italian style. This recipe was inspired by the classic lasagna, but I modified it to make it lighter and healthier using greens as main ingredient for the filler. Allow me to show you how this is done.

Ingredients: / Ingredientes:

  • 6 types of greens 150 gr/each (nettles, pazi, poppy leaves, docks, spinach, sorrel) / 6 tipos de verduras 150 gr / cada una (ortigas, pazi, hojas de amapola, muelles, espinacas, acedera)

Preparations: / Preparativos:

Start the recipe with the preparation of the green filler. To see it in details please click here.

As soon as the filler with greens is ready we start with the preparation of the lasagna foils. I used ready foils that I buy in the shop, but the lasagna foils could be prepared by yourself as well. Both ways the procedure is like this. Boils some water in a wide fry -pan and plunge there the first layer of the lasagna foils. My glass baking-pan requires 3 foils. Allow for the lasagna foils to soften a bit, than remove them from the heat. Lubricate the end of the baking-pan with some olive oil and cover it with the softened lasagna foils. Cover the lasagna foils with one layer of filler with greens spread uniformly.

Tan pronto como el relleno con verduras esté listo, comenzamos con la preparación de las láminas de lasaña. Usé láminas listas que compro en la tienda, pero las láminas de lasaña también las puede preparar usted mismo. En ambos sentidos, el procedimiento es así. Hierve un poco de agua en una sartén ancha y sumerge allí la primera capa de las láminas de lasaña. Mi bandeja para hornear de vidrio requiere 3 láminas. Permita que las láminas de lasaña se ablanden un poco, luego retírelas del fuego. Lubrique el extremo del molde para hornear con un poco de aceite de oliva y cúbralo con las láminas de lasaña suavizadas. Cubra las láminas de lasaña con una capa de relleno con hojas verdes uniformemente.

Use your hands to minced 1/3 of feta cheese and spread it all over the filler with greens. Repeat the softening procedure with other lasagna foils and cover the filler fully with lasagna foils.

Usa tus manos para picar 1/3 de queso feta y extiéndelo por todo el relleno con verduras. Repita el procedimiento de ablandamiento con otras láminas de lasaña y cubra el relleno completamente con láminas de lasaña.

Repeat the same procedure with two more layers of filler. You’ll end up with your baking-pan filled with three layers of green filler and four layers of lasagna foils. Attention! the green filler will be little juicy. Make sure to add this juice to the last layer of green filler.

Preparation of the Béchamel Sauce: / Preparación de la Salsa Béchamel:

In a non-stick pan fry the wheat flour until the flour starts to turn color. Add one cup of fresh milk and continue stirring until the milk and flour will create a uniform preparation. At the moment the béchamel sauce is thickened enough, remove it from fire and add one full egg stirring very fast. Spread the béchamel sauce uniformly over the lasagna foils. Cover lasagna with cheese for pizza and bake it in pre-heated oven for 45 minutes at 200.

Repita el mismo procedimiento con dos capas más de relleno. Terminarás con tu bandeja para hornear llena con tres capas de relleno verde y cuatro capas de láminas de lasaña. ¡Atención! el relleno verde estará un poco jugoso. Asegúrese de agregar este jugo a la última capa de relleno verde.
En una sartén antiadherente freír la harina de trigo hasta que la harina comience a cambiar de color. Agregue una taza de leche fresca y continúe revolviendo hasta que la leche y la harina creen una preparación uniforme. Por el momento, la salsa bechamel está suficientemente espesa, retírela del fuego y agregue un huevo completo revolviendo muy rápido. Extienda la salsa bechamel uniformemente sobre las láminas de lasaña. Cubra la lasaña con queso para pizza y hornee en horno precalentado durante 45 minutos a 200ºC.

Lasagna is ready when the upper layers is turned into light-brown, similar to a pizza. Cut Special Vegetarian Lasagna with greens in portions and nicely serve them into a plate. Bon Appetite!
