Healthy Pregnancy Mexican Lasagne

healthy_pregnancy_recipesA delicious healthy pregnancy recipe is this healthy option for a Mexican Style Lasagna, that is great when following a healthy pregnancy eating plan.

This is a great recipe for a dinner party – and your guests don’t need to know it’s healthy!

Try serving it with light sour cream, or a simple guacamole of avocado mashed up with lemon/lime juice and salt and pepper.

On the side you could serve a colourful salad of iceberg lettuce, diced tomato, diced red onion, diced red and yellow capsicum, grated carrot and cucumber.

This tastes even better the next day so it can be prepared ahead of time. It also freezes well if there are any leftovers which makes it great to add to the healthy pregnancy recipe list so you have healthy meals in the freezer when your baby is born.

Ingredients:

  • 400g premium beef mince
  • 410g can of salt reduced red kidney beans, drained and rinsed well
  • 2 medium carrots, grated
  • 2 medium onions, finely diced
  • 1 red capsicum, finely chopped
  • 400g can salt reduced diced tomatoes
  • 35g sachet salt reduced taco seasoning
  • 5 x wholegrain wraps/tortillas
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated.

Method:

  • Preheat your oven to 180C.
  • Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat.
  • Sauté onion for a couple of minutes, then add 1 tbsp water (this takes away the need for any added oil) and cook until the onion is soft and translucent, and water has evaporated.
  • Increase the heat to high and add the mince.
  • Cook, stirring, until there are no lumps and mince is brown.
  • Add grated carrot, chopped capsicum, red kidney beans, diced tomatoes and taco seasoning. Stir and then simmer for 10-15 minutes until mixture has thickened.
  • Lightly spray an oven safe dish with cooking spray.
  • Layer the dish with 2 x tortillas, then half of the meat mixture, 1 x tortilla, the remaining meat mixture, 2 more tortillas, then sour cream. Sprinkle the cheese over the top.
  • Cook for 30-40 minutes, or until golden brown.
