Cauliflower Sausage Lasagne

Cauliflower lasagne
Joerg and I are trying to eat a low carb diet as much as possible, so I came up with this recipe and we think it’s superb! We didn’t miss the lasagne sheets at all. I used sausage instead of minced meat, well because I happened to have loads of it!!

Serves 8
Cauliflower lasagne
1-2 cauliflower, thickly sliced
1kg sausage, chopped into bite size pieces
4-6 onions, roughly chopped
1-2 tbsp oil
2-3 red peppers, chopped in bite size pieces
2 tins tomatoes
Salt and pepper
1 tsp paprika, sweet or hot
½ tsp chilli powder
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 small tin tomato paste
Handful olives, chopped

75g butter
75g flour
1 lt milk
1 tbsp mustard, optional
Salt and pepper to taste
½ tsp nutmeg

150 - 250 grated cheese, cheddar or emmental, or whatever cheese you enjoy eating
Cauliflower lasagne
1. Blanche the cauliflower for 5 minutes and then plunge into cold water to stop the cooking process. Remove and drain well.
2. MEAT SAUCE: Brown the sausage and onion in the oil. Add the rest of the sauce ingredients and simmer till slightly thickened.
3. WHITE SAUCE: Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the flour, stirring constantly till combined, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, add a bit of milk, stirring constantly, till well combined, then add the rest of the milk. I always use a whisk to avoid lumps forming. Return to the heat and stir till thickened. Add the mustard if using and salt and pepper to taste.
4. LAYERING: Place 1/3 of the white sauce on the bottom of the dish, then ½ the cauliflower, then ½ of the meat sauce. Repeat. Spread the last 1/3 of the white sauce on top and sprinkle the cheese on top.
5. Place in a pre-heated 180C / 350F oven and bake for about 30 minutes till warmed through and cheese has melted and browned.

And that’s it! It really is deeeelicious! Enjoy!
