  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 175°C (155°C fan-forced). Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add butter. Stir until melted. Add onion, garlic and thyme. Sauté for 5 mins or until onion is just tender. Add cauliflower. Cook, stirring, for 6 mins or until softened. Add milk and cream and simmer for 5 mins or until cauliflower is tender. Remove from heat and discard thyme. Allow the cauliflower mixture to cool slightly. Carefully place in a blender. Blend until smooth. Season cauliflower mixture generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Step 2

    Wipe frying pan clean. Heat over medium-high heat. Add oil and kale. Cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until kale is wilted and tender. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to drain.
  3. Step 3

    Spread ¾ cup of the cauliflower cream over the base of a 24cm x 18cm x 5cm baking dish. Place a layer of lasagne sheets over sauce, breaking to fit (don’t worry if there’s space around sheets – they expand as they cook). Place one-third of the kale on top. Spoon ¾ cup of the cauliflower cream over kale and sprinkle with one-third of the mozzarella. Repeat layers twice with lasagne sheets, kale, cauliflower cream and mozzarella. Top with remaining lasagne sheets. Cover with remaining 1¼ cups of cauliflower cream.
  4. Step 4

    Cover baking dish with foil. Place on a baking tray and bake for 45 mins or until lasagne is heated through (the tip of a knife inserted into centre of lasagne for 10 secs should feel hot to the touch) and lasagne sheets are softened.
  5. Step 5

    Preheat grill on high. Remove foil and sprinkle with parmesan. Cook for 2-3 mins or until golden brown. Set aside for 15 mins to cool before serving.
