Lasagna with ground beef, green cabbage and carrots!

Lasagna with ground beef, green cabbage and carrots!

1 big Carrot
Leaves of Green Cabbage
500 g Ground beef
1 Spring Onion
1 can of crushed tomatoes
Spices according to your liking
2 cubes of beef broth

Shred the carrot with a potato peeler to long strings. Steam the cabbage leaves to soften them. Fry the ground beef in the frying pan with a little olive oil. Cut the spring onion in small pieces and add to the ground beef. Add the tomato sauce to the ground beef and let it simmer. Add spices until it tastes according to your liking.

I added some Mexican spices as well. And it tasted great. When the sauce has simmered some and the cabbage is soft. Place a layer of cabbage leaves in a baking tin and put a layer of the sauce on top, add a layer of carrots, continue with another layer of cabbage leaves and sauce and carrots until the tin is full.

Cover the tin with foil when full and put in the oven on 200 Celsius Degrees for about 1 hour, or until the Cabbage leaves are really soft.
Cut and serve as any lasagna.

To make it faster and less time in the oven I could have steamed the cabbage longer and maybe not even had to put it in the oven. Anyways just be bold and experiment in your kitchen yourself as well.

This dish is really making you feel full and it is very healthy with vitamins and minerals. The green cabbage is full of C vitamins and the carrot full of A vitamin. There is no fat and no carbohydrates. And even the ground beef have a lot of nutrients good for you as well and with little fat as well. It is really fun to find alternatives to dishes and the satisfaction of knowing it is so healthy. It inspires to experiment in the kitchen!

Pancake Dessert

  Pancake Dessert

This batch will make a small portion for about two people only.

  • 3 large eggs
  • 115 g almond flour
  • 1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
  • 140 ml milk
  • 1 pinch salt
  • Food coloring
  • Quark, Cottage Cheese, Frosting * for decoration according to your choice
  • 1 Banana

Mix the eggs, flour, milk, salt and baking powder. Divide the batch into different cups and add the food colors you want to each cup and stir. Fry the pancakes in a frying pan and cool off.

Making the cake
When cooled off cut the pancakes in halves. Place them on top of each other with a layer of frosting and banana slices in between. Place the pancakes with the cut edge out, to show the colors of the layers. If you want to avoid sweets totally, use natural yoghurt or quark between the layers instead of frosting. Since I wanted to make it cake-like I mixed frosting with vanilla tasting quark.  Another alternative could be to use cottage cheese between each layer and on top. Decorate with the frosting around the backside.
