Hello and welcome to the UnPCKitchen, a grain free place that believes in real food for human beings (and cats for that matter, I have 3 of them, all raw foodies).

I am Caroline Spear, Nutritionist  Certified GAPS Practitioner  Homoeopath  Doula and  Mamma.

Tonight we ate Unlasagne. A simple recipe calling for:

1 onion

1 carrot

2 Sticks of celery, all finely diced and fried in beef fat.

Add to that a few chopped tomatoes, a good sprinkling of organic mixed herbs, black pepper and about 1kg of fattty minced  grass fed beef and a few tablespoons of bone stock. Cook thoroughly.

Whilst cooking, dollop a decent lump of butter into a saucepan, add about 300 grams of  good full fat cream cheese (avoid any that contain anything other than milk, starter culture and salt), a dash of full fat milk (preferably raw) and stir over a low heat until the you have a smooth sauce. Add about 125 grams of grated cheese. Stir till all melted.

Take a 250gm piece of Emmantal and slice very finely. I grate mine on the widest part of my grater.Erica BIrthday2013 007

Assembly… using a 2 litre oven proof bowl, I used one that measures 24cm X 19cm X 7cm, layer the ingredients. Start with the cooked mince, then a layer of sauce, then a layer of Emmantal, finish with a layer of sauce and topped with the remaining Emmantal.

Bake in an oven,  gas mark 5 for 20 – 30 mins till hot through and Emmantal has melted on top.


This is a nourishing, filling dish that should feed 6 people. You can serve on it’s own, or with green leafy veg, swimming in butter or a salad.
