A dish calls itself accomplished when it satisfies your appetite, pleasures your heart and quenches your soul. It is a dish’s pride when you first savour it with sight, then smell and finally taste. I tried to engage my diners’ senses in that same order with this Vegetarian Lasagne.
Now, the fresh pasta sheets aren’t native to me like the rotis or parathas. But these translucent sheets that came out from the pot of boiling water didn’t let me down neither did the crusty bread that stepped out of the oven. The pasta had the right bite which held the layers of vegetables and a generous pour of tomato sauce. The smooth Bechamel sauce on top is of course integral to the lasagne. I had a melange of seasonal vegetables which I left crunchy but not raw, seasoned with oregano and salt.
The Balsamic Thyme Onions caramelized perfectly with a blend of butter, olive oil and vinegar. They were tender and roasty at the same time. It was my first time after reading about it on #BetterHomesandGardens and I completely loved, how they looked and turned out. The garlicky buttery bread bars on the side brought it home together.
I have missed the flurry and excitement of plating food in the Pop-ups. Trying to get better at it and learning the art.
