New blog from Piotrek

There was also a new blog from Piotrek :) Read it here after the cut or at dunesite.com :)

Very important is FOOD! This is the fuel for all of us human beings. Without it, we would die. Food can be a profession, a passion, a business, a plague, a curse, an addiction, an art and a big joy.
We all have some favorite dishes, and today my blog is about making one of my favorites.

Almost everyone knows it, almost everyone has tasted it.
So here we go:

What do I need?
 - 2 red onions, finely chopped
 - 5 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
 - olive oil
 - 400g ground beef
 - 250g brown portobello mushrooms, cut in thin slices
 - 2 carrots, shredded
 - 1 head of broccoli, broken into florets
 - 2 cans of chopped tomatoes
 - 1 little can of tomato purée
 - herbs (thyme, oregano, rosemary, salt & pepper)

How do I prepare it?
Heat up some olive oil in a medium sized pot. Fry the onions and garlic together until the onions are softened. Meanwhile, boil the broccoli florets in slightly salted water for about 10 minutes. Add the ground beef and chop it in small pieces inside the pot. When the beef gets browned, it’s time to add carrots, mushrooms, broccoli and the herbs. When the mushrooms shrink and get soft, add the chopped tomatoes and the tomato purée and a little bit of water. Stir slowly until the sauce get a nice, tomato’ish consistency. Let it simmer on small heat and stir it once in a while.
Here are some pics:

THE WHITE SAUCE: (inspired by a guy called Jamie)

What do I need?
 - 3 cups of creme fraiche
 - herbs (thyme, rosemary & pepper)
 - 50g cheddar cheese, finely shredded

How do I prepare it?
Just mix everything in a bowl and put into the fridge until the time, when you will be assembling the lasagna.
At this point, preheat the oven to 185 degrees Celcius.

Even though many of these plates don’t need pre-cooking, I always cook them in water with salt & olive oil for 2-3 minutes and let them dry on a piece of paper.

What do I need?
 - 1 package of fresh mozarella cheese, sliced
 - 2 big tomatoes, sliced
 - a bunch of fresh basil leaves
 - 50g parmesan cheese, grated

What's next?
It's time to put everything together in layers (I manage to make 3 layers of each) in following order:
 - tomato sauce
 - lasagna plates
 - white sauce (put some salt & pepper on top every time)
 - tomato sauce
 - etc.

Anyway, you should end up with a layer of the white sauce on top. Place the slices of mozarella cheese and tomatoes on the whole surface. Decorate with basil leaves. Last thing - sprinkle the grated parmesan cheese on top of your lasagna. Now, it's ready for baking.


Cover your lasagna with aluminum foil and bake it for 20 minutes.
Then, remove the foil and continue baking for another 30 minutes. Voila! It’s finished, warm and incredibly tasty!


Have fun with cooking!
If you want, you can send pics of your lasagne to: photos@dunesite.com
I’m curious to see, how it looks, when it’s finished.
Buon appetito!
