Happy National Vegetarian Week!

18th May 2015

Happy National Vegetarian Week!

Whether you are a vegetarian or not, there are some delicious recipes you can cook and what better week to try them than this one!

We have found a recipe online for a vegetarian aubergine lasagne, recipe by Jamie Oliver (link below) which we are going to make this week!

Ingredients:

 

  • 3 aubergines
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
  • a few sprigs fresh thyme, leaves picked
  • 1 dried red chilli, crumbled
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2×400 g organic tinned plum tomatoes
  • 1 splash balsamic vinegar
  • 1 bunch fresh basil, leaves picked and stalks chopped
  • 150 g Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 handfuls Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 6-8 fresh lasagne sheets

Method:

Preheat the oven to 200°C/400ºF/gas 6. Steam the whole aubergines over a pan of simmering water for 30 minutes, then scoop out the flesh and cut it up roughly. Slowly fry the aubergine, garlic, thyme and chilli in the olive oil for around 10 minutes. 

Add the tins of tomatoes, chopping them up roughly with a wooden spoon, then add the balsamic vinegar and most of the basil leaves. Bring to the boil and simmer for around 10 minutes until the sauce has reduced and thickened. 

Spread a layer of aubergine sauce in a large, shallow dish. Sprinkle over some Cheddar and a handful of Parmesan, then spread over a layer of lasagne sheets. Repeat once or twice more, until your dish is full. Finish with a final sprinkling of Parmesan, a scattering of basil leaves and a drizzle of olive oil. 

Place in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes until bubbling and golden.

Since the lasagne serves 6, we thought it was a good choice for an evening dinner party, we plan to put our William Morris Pimpernel cloth on the table for the evening, we thought it would look lovely with some candles on it!

🌷 William Morris month day 30 🌷 As we come near the end of Morris month, we’re celebrating with a fabric stack, full of beautiful licensed designs, which is your fave? 🌿 “Remember that a pattern is either right or wrong. It cannot be forgiven for blundering, as a picture may be which has otherwise great qualities in it. It is with a pattern as with a fortress, it is no stronger than its weakest point.”- William Morris 🤍

🌿 William Morris Day 20 🌿 William Morris fact of the day; did you know he founded the Kelmscott Press? 🖋️ He wrote of the venture – “Here is a new craft to conquer and to perfect.” Printing began at the press in Spring 1891 🪴 He designed multiple fonts including “Golden” Roman typeface and “Troy” Gothic type along with “Chaucer” and he worked to create beautiful books in regards to their designs which took into account their type, image and decorative elements – you can see beautiful examples of what he achieved today if you do a quick search on the Kelmscott Press- it’s well worth a Google! 🌷
