Cooking With Kitty #8

So this week we’re going vegetarian, which doesn’t really please Kitty but she’s willing to let it be. My husband noticed this recipe in the Woolworths Magazine and though I was dubious, it turned out to be really nice.

Bean and Eggplant Lasagna

F.Whitlock & Sons


1 medium eggplant
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 x 420g cans F. Whitlock & Sons
Killer Beans in Fred’s Ballistic
Tomato & Basil Sauce
½ cup vegetable stock or water
1 tsp dried rubbed oregano
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
4-6 large Dried Lasagne sheets
250g pottle lite cream cheese
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
Chopped parsley to garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (fan assisted). Slice the eggplant into 1cm thick
    rounds. Brush the slices with olive oil and place on a baking tray lined with
    baking paper. Bake for 15 minutes, until the eggplant is cooked. Remove
    from the oven. While the eggplant is cooking prepare the bean flling.
  2. Heat a dash of oil in a pan. Add the onion and cook over a medium low
    heat until softened. Add the garlic and cook a further minute. Add F.
    Whitlock & Sons Killer Beans in Fred’s Ballistic Tomato & Basil Sauce,
    stock (or water), oregano and balsamic vinegar. Stir to mix and allow to
    heat through. Remove from the heat.
  3. To assemble, grease a small lasagne style dish (approx. 6-8 cup capacity).
    Place a layer of eggplant in the base of the dish. Spoon over half the bean
    mixture and top with lasagne sheets. Repeat the layers fnishing with a
    layer of pasta.
  4. Mix together the cream cheese and Parmesan and spoon over the top of
    the lasagne. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until pasta is cooked, flling hot and
    topping golden. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before serving, garnished
    with freshly chopped parsley if wished.

  1. I was just going to ask the same question as Sadje. We don’t get the ‘Killer Beans’ here either, which is a shame. I guess I could mix tins of chickpeas and tomatoes in basil sauce – sounds like a winner!
