what flour to use to make it?
I like to use my universal homemade gluten-free flour blend. Which is a mix of the following flours :
3. Sweet Rice Flour (Glutinous Rice aka Sticky Rice)
4. Tapioca Flour (tapioca starch is the same as tapioca flour)
5. Xanthan Gum
If you can’t make that one, you can try with any gluten-free flour mix (just make sure it contains xanthan gum because that helps in binding the dough). The final result using different flour mix might vary slightly, depending on what flours your mix contains.

* fodmap tip:
*To make sure that your flour mix is fodmap friendly I recommend that you make your own gluten-free flour mix, I always make this one. Or always read the ingredients of the store-bought gluten-free flour mixes. Make sure your mix doesn’t contain soy flour, chickpea/besan/gram/garbanzo bean flour, lentil flour, coconut flour, amaranth flour, or lupin flour.
*If you are using store-bought garlic-infused olive oil, make sure there are no floating bits of garlic in it. You can also make Garlic Infused olive oil at home by frying garlic cloves in the olive oil until they are golden and fragrant. Then remove them from the oil and continue cooking your meal.
*Use plain tomato passata, without any additional flavorings or spices (since there can be hidden FODMAP’s.)
*As a general rule always read the labels of the ingredients that you use as there can be sneaky FODMAP’s in any product. To educate yourself on which foods are high in FODMAP’s I’d strongly recommend downloading Monash Unversity FODMAP Diet App

To make the Vegetarian Ragù
- Heat up a skillet over a medium heat. Once hot add the garlic infused olive oil, courgette,carrots, spring onions or chives, mushroms and cook for about 5min or until they start to soften. Add the fresh tomatos and the tomato passata, season with salt, pepper and italian hearb mix and let it simmer for about 10 to 15min on low heat.
- In the meantime prerpare the Béchamel sauce.
To make the Béchamel sauce
- In a medium saucepan, heat the butter over medium-low heat until melted. Add the gluten-free flour and whisk until smooth. Over medium heat, cook until the mixture turns a light, golden sandy color, about 6 to 7 minutes
- Meanwhile, heat the milk in a separate pan until just about to boil. Add the hot milk to the flour mixture 1 cup at a time, whisking continuously until very smooth. Bring to a boil. Cook 10 minutes, stirring constantly, then remove from heat. Season with salt and nutmeg, and set aside until ready to use.
- Once both the béchamel and the ragù sauce are done, you can start assembling your lasagna.
- The first layer of the lasagna should be the ragù sauce, then one layer of lasagna sheets, then the ragù sauce, the béchamel sauce and the grated cheese, and then another layer of lasagna sheets. Repeat this until all your ingredients are finished. The last layer of the lasagna should be the ragù sauce topped with cheeses.
- Place it in the oven and bake for 30 to 35min on 190C degrees. Or until the top is golden.
- Serve while it's warm.
- And enjoy! 🙂
