Mushroom and kale lasagne with pine nuts
  • 9-12 sheets lasagne
  • 400 g field or portabello mushroomssliced
  • 200 g curly kalesliced roughly
  • 50 g pine nuts
  • Fewo sprigs Thymefresh (about a teaspoon of leaves)
  • 4 cloves garlicfinely chopped
  • 75 g stiltoncrumbled on top
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 l whole milk
  • 75 g butter
  • 75 g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon English mustard(you can't taste this, it just adds depth - please use more or less to taste)

1. Preheat your oven to 190C. 2. First, heat a generous knob of butter in a large frying pan. Add your sliced mushrooms, thyme and garlic and fry over a high-ish heat until they go black (not burnt) and all the liquid has come out of them. This can take a while, about 20-25 minutes. Set aside. 3. Cover your kale in cold water and bring to boil. Let it boil for 3 minutes. Drain and set aside. 4. To make your béchamel, simply place your butter, milk and flour in a large jug and microwave on high for 7-10 minutes, whisking every minute or so. It will suddenly thicken, when it does, turn your heat down to medium and cook for a further 6 minutes to cook out the flour. Once it's done, season, add mustard and set aside. 5. With all your components made, you are ready to assemble. 6. Ladle about a third of the béchamel into the drained kale and combine. 7. In a large baking / lasagne / pie dish, layer 3/4 sheets of lasagne, then add all your kale. Now sprinkle a third of your pine nuts over. Add 3/4 more sheets of pasta. Then your mushrooms. Ladle a second third of the béchamel over the mushrooms. A further third of nuts. Now 3/4 more lasagne sheets. Finally the last third of the sauce and the rest of the pine nuts. Crumble your stilton over fairly evenly. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Feed the most ardent meat eater and smile when they exclaim their appreciation!
