What you get:
Cherry vine tomatoes
Organic Wootton white cheese
From your larder:
1 large red onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, fine dice
250g mushrooms, sliced
1 tin chopped tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato purée
3-4 cherry vine tomatoes, chopped
1 tbsp miso paste
30g Oregano, picked and chopped
150g Organic Wootton white cheese, crumbled
500g sweet potatoes, washed and finely sliced
20g Basil, picked
2 tbsp Olive oil
Preheat the oven to 180-190 degrees and grease a large oven dish with olive oil.
To make the mushroom bolognese:
In a large frying pan, sauté the diced onion and garlic until the onion is soft and golden brown. Add the sliced mushrooms and diced tomatoes. After approx. 4 minutes, add the tomato puree, tinned tomato and miso paste to make a tomato/mushroom sauce. Taste and season as you like. (Remember miso is already quite salty so you might not wish to add more salt). Cook for 10 minutes and set aside.
Slice the sweet potato as thinly as possible (a mandolin works great here). Don't worry about peeling the potatoes, just give them a good wash. Spread the sauce to cover the base of the oven dish and top with a layer of sweet potato. Spread the cheese and sprinkle some chopped oregano over the potatoes.
Continue layering in this order until all the ingredients are used up.
Cover the dish with foil and bake for about 20 minutes on about 180-190 degrees. Remove the foil and bake another 20-25 minutes until the lasagna is ready and a knife passes cleanly through.
Top with basil and serve.
