I love winter food!

Split pea soup

Curried lentils

Veggie stew

Bean soup

Do you have a crock pot (slow cooker)? I love mine to cook things all day. Fresh bread would go well with all of these.

Also, lasagne or bean enchiladas baked in the oven would be yummy and would warm the house. Okay, now I'm hungry!!

I would love the recipe for the veggie stew and curried lentils.

I don't have a crock pot unfortunately

I also wouldn't mind your lasagne recipe, is it vegan?

I've played around with lasagne before but still havn't found the perfect vegan recipe.

Here are a few recipes for you:

Autumn Stew...this is so yummy and easy!

1/2 cup water or vegetable stock

1 Tbs soy sauce

1 onion, chopped

1 red bell pepper, diced

4 large cloves of garlic, minced

1lb. (4 cups) butternut squash

1 15 ounce can chopped tomatoes

1 cup water

2 tsp oregano

1 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 1/2 cups corn, fresh or frozen

1 15 ounce can kidney beans

Heat water and soy sauce in a large pot, then add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Cook over medium heat until the onion is traslucent and most of the water has evaporated. Cut the sqush in half, remove the seeds, then peel and cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Add to onion mixture along with chopped tomatoes, water, oregano, chili powder, cumin, and pepper. Cover and simmer until the squash is just tender when pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes, then add corn and kidney beans with their liquid. Cook 5 minutes longer.

Here's another...

Curried Lentils & Pineapple

1 large onion, finely chopped

1 clove garlic

12 oz split red lentils 1.5 pints water

4 tsp. curry powder

14 oz. pineapple pieces, drained

Suate the onion and garlic in a little water. After 10 minutes or so add the curry powder and lentils. Stir for a minute or so to make sure the curry powder is well mixed in. Drain and thoroughly mash the pinapple pieces and add them to the pan with the water (note: I always thought it was silly to dump out the juice so I used crushed pineapple with it's juice and lowered the amount of water accordingly.) and bring the lot to a boil. cover the pan with a lid and simmer gently for 20-30 minutes-ensure the lentils are soft and cooked. Garnish with fresh tomato slices and serve with brown rice.
