Cottage Pie:

2 tin of lentils
1 grated carrot
1 diced capsicum
1 grated zucchini
1/2 diced onion
4 mushroom sliced

Put potatoes on the stove to boil for mashing then in a bowl mix all of the above ingredients then transfer to a baking dish. When potato is cooked, mash then spread over the top of the other vegetables and put it all in the oven until it looks ready.

That one is a hit with my daughter which means we have it fairly often.

Also you can make patties with lentils uing a little rice bran oil and gluten free cornflour to hold it together then put that with other veges like we sometime have it with mash potato, pumpkin, and sweet potato, boiled corn on the cob, steamed carrot and broccoli, and some steamed pinach.

**That's 2 anyway sorry. I'm a sole parent with 37 hours a week of work so really busy. I feel like a snob about now but really it's only that I'm busy not snobby :(

Hi -

Can you do beans? We make bean patties a lot - very cheap and easy. The 5 minute mac and cheese from the Spunky Coconut website (it's dairy free - she uses cashews as the base). If you need a quick meal, Amy's has a couple of vegetarian gluten-free options. I also do eggplant parmesan. For the bread crumbs I just run the heels of my gluten-free bread in the blender.

Not snobby at all, I remember busy from when I was working. Thank you for the recipes.

I actually need to try beans, I never liked them growing up but since tastes change so much over the years I will be trying them again. The mac n cheese recipe sounds really good, I'm going to have to try that.

Tonight will be:

-butternut squash soup
-roasted red potatoes
-zucchini tomato frittata with rosemary

You can tell the temperature just dropped 10 degrees! And squash (happily, just in time) appears to have come into season.

That sounds delicious! It has Autumn written all over it. There is something about Autumn foods that is so comforting. That frittata sounds really good, too. I need to make more of those! The last one was asparagus I think.

I was GOING to have Simona's Challah Bread yesterday but was too busy canning. So, I made it today (delicious) to have with leftover Vichyssoise soup. Simple but good. Tomorrow will be a touch more elaborate. :D

Soft polenta with summer corn, basil and asiago cheese topped by sauteed garlic beet greens.

Went to the farmers' market today and came back with an armful of beets & their greens - yum!

Gluten-free lasagna? Did you use gluten-free noodles? If so, what brand do you like? Seems like the gluten-free pasta gets so gummy, it'd be hard to make a decent lasagna. But I'd love to!

This is a delicious gluten-free, veg lasagna that I've enjoyed:

That recipe looks yummy!

Anyway I used the Tinkyada brown rice lasagna noodles except that I didn't cook them before I made the lasagna, it didn't get gummy that way. Just make sure that the sauce that you use covers the noodles so that they are able to cook.
