1 Preheat oven to 200°C on fan bake. Cover the kumara in a microwave-proof dish with a dash of water and microwave on high for 8—10 minutes until soft.
2 Heat oil in a frying pan on a high heat. Add garlic, cumin and mince and fry for 4—5 minutes until browned. Add the tomatoes and Worcestershire sauce and simmer for a further 5 minutes.
3 Remove the kumara from the microwave-proof dish and replace with broccoli. Microwave for 5—10 minutes until the broccoli is lightly steamed. Pour half of the mince into a medium-sized deep ovenproof dish and completely cover with half of the kumara. Spread half of the cottage cheese over the kumara, followed by a layer of spinach. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients. Top with grated cheese; press down lightly. Place in the oven for 8—10 minutes until the cheese is melted.
4 Serve the lasagne with a grind of pepper, alongside steamed broccoli.
