Chef Recipe: Open Buckwheat Gluten-Free Lasagna
This summer, Andrea Oschetti of Blue Flower Inspired Travels and Cuore Private Kitchen shares a simple, nutritious recipe.
Former banker, entrepreneur, anthropologist, private chef, photojournalist, extreme wanderer, and travel guru Andrea Oschetti says: “This is a simple recipe for open buckwheat lasagne, thyme-scented mushroom and oven-baked goat cheese with a light basil pesto. The buckwheat flour is free of gluten and highly nutritious!”
- 200 grams buckwheat flour
- 200 grams mushrooms
- 50 grams goat’s cheese
- 2 bunches thyme
- 3 bunches basil
- 2 cloves garlic
- 100ml vegetable broth
- 1 tbsp grated parmesan
- 10 grams pine nuts
- Mix the flour with water and knead the dough for a few minutes until you obtain a smooth and even consistency.
- Roll the dough and cut it into rectangles of 10cm.
- Cut the mushrooms into slices and cook them in a sauté pan. (Note: You do not need olive oil when you sauté vegetables; a little bit of water will do!)
- When cooked, set aside and sprinkle generously with fresh thyme.
Cut the goat’s cheese – the cheese with the lowest fat content – into medallions 1cm thick.
- To prepare a light version of the traditional pesto, place basil, oil, garlic, parmesan, pine nuts, vegetable broth and a pinch of salt in a mixer and blitz briefly.
- Lay the squares of lasagne on an oven tray covered with greaseproof paper.
- Place the mushrooms on the lasagne and finish with a medallion of cheese and a twig of thyme on top.
- Put the tray in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes.
- Remove, place the open lasagne on a plate, garnish with the light pesto and serve.
