Ingredients
  

Lasagna Sheets

  • 2 lb cauliflower
  • 4 eggs
  • 0.5 tsp kosher or ground sea salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1.25 oz parmesan cheese grated

Cheese Sauce

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 0.25 cup heavy cream
  • 4.5 oz shredded cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 14 oz crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp concentrated beed bouillon
  • 0.5 cup red wine
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 pinch groung black pepper
  • butter for frying

Instructions
 

  • Set the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Chop onion and garlic finely and fry in butter in a thick-bottomed pot.
  • Add ground beef and keep frying until cooked thoroughly. Add tomato paste in the pot and pour in crushed tomatoes.
  • Season with bouillon, red wine, salt and black pepper and let simmer for about 20 minutes.

Lasagna sheet

  • Place a parchment paper in a large baking pan and grease with oil.
  • Grate a medium-sized cauliflower head in a food processor. The cauliflower should be finely grated.
  • Place the grated cauliflower in a bowl and cook for two minutes on high in the microwave oven. Stir and microwave for two more minutes.
  • Let the grated cauliflower cool and place in a baking cloth (towel) and squeeze the liquid out by tying and wringing the towel. Almost a cup of liquid has to come out for the rice to be dry.
  • Put the cauliflower rice, eggs and spices in a bowl and stir them together.
  • Spread the batter on to the parchment paper and bake on lower rack of the oven for about 15 minutes. Remove and let cool. Cut into adequate-sized pieces, like lasagna sheets.

Layering and baking

  • In a deep baking dish add some bolognese, then sheets and cheese sauce. Alternate and finish up with cheese sauce and grated parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for 20–30 minutes and let cool for a few minutes before serving.

Ingredients
  

Meatloaf

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 yellow onion finely chopped
  • 1.25 lbs ground beef or ground lamb or ground pork
  • 0.25 cup heavy cream
  • 2 oz shredded cheese
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano or dried basil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 0.25 tsp ground black pepper
  • 7 oz sliced bacon

Gravy

  • 1.25 cup heavy cream
  • 0.25 tbsp tamari soy sauce (optional)

Instructions
 

Meatloaf

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C)
  • Over medium heat, melt the butter in a frying pan. Add the onion and fry until soft, but not browned, and then set aside to cool.
  • Mix the ground meat in a bowl. Add in the fried onion and all the other ingredients, except the bacon. Mix well, but avoid overworking it because this can make the end result too dense.
  • Form into a loaf and place into a greased baking dish. Wrap the loaf in bacon.
  • Bake in the middle of the oven for about 45 minutes. If the bacon begins to overcook before the meat is done, cover with aluminum foil and lower the heat a bit. If the bacon doesn’t appear to be completely done, broil the meatloaf for approximately 5 minutes.

Gravy and serving

  • Save the juices that have accumulated in the baking dish, and use to make the gravy. Mix the juices and the cream in a smaller sauce pan.
  • Bring to a boil and lower the heat and let simmer for 10–15 minutes until it has the right consistency. If you want, use a little tamari soy sauce to taste.
  • Serve with freshly boiled broccoli or cauliflower with butter, salt and pepper or any other side dish of your choice.

Ingredients
  

  • 8 eggs
  • 5 oz bacon slices
  • cherry tomatoes optional

For eggs cooked over easy — flip the eggs over after a few minutes and cook for another minute. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and fry them at the same time.

Zuccini fettucine

  • 2 zucchini
