Green mac’n’cheese

Although new magazines give me more than enough inspiration for daily cooking, I regularly re- inspect my favorite cookbooks. This vegetarian recipe from Jamie Oliver’s cookbook VEG is a perfect combination of comfort and healthy.

For 2p, heat a pan (which you can also put in the oven). Melt 20 grams of butter. Bake 4 chopped garlic cloves, 1 chopped leek, 500 grams of chopped broccoli and 1 table spoon of dried thyme. Bake and stir for approximately 10 minutes. Add 1 table spoon of flour. Mix and bake. Pour 500 ml of milk on the vegetables. Keep on stirring. The sauce will thicken slightly. Stop the fire Add 80 grams of grated cheddar cheese and 100 grams of fresh baby spinach. Mix. Taste, add pepper and salt. (Jamie puts everything in the blender, I prefer visible greens).

Boil 150 short farro pasta not even ( they will cook further in the oven)al dente. Mix with the vegetables and the sauce. Finish with 25 grams of almond flakes and 20 grams of grated cheddar cheese. Bake in the oven at 180° for 30 minutes, until golden brown.

Healthy comfort food. Thanks, Jamie Oliver.
