Aubergine Lasagne – Whether you are vegetarian or just fancy a meatless meal, this (Eggplant) Aubergine Lasagne is delicious and healthy.
Vegetarian Eggplant (Aubergine) Lasagne
I had an Aubergine (Eggplant) that needed to be used up (one of my favourite vegetables) and was originally going to make a gratin. Instead, thinking about my love of Greek dishes and things like this Healthier Moussaka or Moussaka Meatballs or even this yummy Mediterranean Layered Bake, I decided on this (Eggplant) Aubergine Lasagne and boy was it delicious.
Even meat lovers will enjoy this dish, as it is filling, cheesy and delicious!!
Healthy Vegetable Lasagne
As well as the aubergine (eggplant) this delicious lasagne includes other healthy delicious vegetables, like celery, carrot and bell peppers.
But feel free to add some additional vegetables of your choice, to pack it out even further. Just be aware that other vegetables may release more liquid, so it’s best to saute them first, especially things like mushrooms or zucchini (courgette)
Light Bechamel Sauce
When it comes to the yummy white sauce you expect on a delicious lasagne, you will not find eggs, yoghurt or quark in this recipe, mainly because those really do not belong on a lasagne and are not creamy or decadent like you expect with a traditional bechamel sauce.
A yummy healthier bechamel sauce can easily be made using milk, starch and some cheese and seasoning and it tastes just as good without use butter. Best of all it doesn’t add a huge amount of syn either, so why would you ever ruin a lasagne by topping it with quark, eggs or yoghurt – no thanks!!!
You will notice in this recipe that I use parmesan and I know traditional parmesan is not vegetarian, but here this side of the Atlantic we can get Parmesan that is vegetarian friendly. It’s not proper Parmesan Reggiano, but it’s a good substitute and has the strong cheese taste you expect.
If you can’t get this where you live, just swap for a Vegetarian friendly hard cheese or even some white mature cheddar will be fine.
Can I freeze this lasagne?
Yep, you sure can, it is best frozen all made up in a dish and before baking, but I have also frozen it completely cooked too and it’s fine.
To reheat, I fully defrost and then warm up in the oven or microwave until piping hot throughout. You could make it up in 4 little containers too instead of one big dish and just cook the portions you want and then freeze the ones you don’t for another day.
Sides for Aubergine (Eggplant) Lasagne
I like to serve this lasagne with a simple side salad. Usually just baby greens, cucumber, red onion and tomatoes with a light vinaigrette
Some just can’t have lasagne without a side serving of chip (fries) and we have the perfect recipe for this Oven Baked Chipsor if you are more a potato wedges time person, then how about this yummy Garlic and Herb Potato Wedges
