3. Bake, uncovered, until heated through and cheese is melted, 20-25 minutes.
Zucchini Tomato Casserole
Created by: Zerrin & Yusuf
Who doesn’t love a good healthy meat-free dish like this flavor-packed vegan zucchini tomato casserole? You can serve this casserole either hot or at room temperature. We always pair it with some yogurt. If you are following a vegan diet, use your favorite plant-based yogurt.
3 large zucchinis, (1 pound) thinly sliced
3 large tomatoes, pureed (makes 2 cups)
6 cloves garlic, mashed
¼ cup chopped parsley
½ cup chopped green onions
1 lemon, squeezed
1 TBSP vinegar
3 TBSP olive oil
2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp chili powder, Mexican or another type
1. Preheat oven to 350F (180C).
2. Mix pureed tomato, garlic, parsley, green onions, lemon juice, vinegar, olive oil and spices in a medium bowl.
3. Put zucchini slices in a large bowl and pour the pureed tomato mixture over them. Stir well using your hand so that each zucchini slice is coated with the red sauce.
4. Transfer them in a large baking dish so that the layer is not very thick. Bake for about 45 minutes or the top gets golden.
5. Serve hot or cold.

Carrot, Parsnip and Lentil Casserole Created By: Happy Baking Days
A hearty vegetarian meal!
1 TBSP olive oil
3 carrots, peeled and sliced
2 parsnips, peeled and sliced
1 onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup red lentils, rinsed
1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp finely chopped coriander
1 bay leaf
Salt and pepper to taste
600 ml vegetable stock
2 medium yukon gold potatoes
2 TBSP milk
1 TBSP butter
Parmesan cheese, grated
1. Add olive oil to a large pot and sauté onion and garlic until soft. Add the carrots and parsnips to the pan along with the stock and bring to a boil. Add the lentils, herbs, and spices. Simmer covered for 20min. or until the vegetables are tender and the lentils are cooked.
2. Preheat oven to 300F. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray if needed. Mix kidney beans into the large pot with the carrot mixture. Using a slotted spoon transfer vegetables into the casserole dish, then ladle in enough liquid to cover the vegetables. Bake for 30-40 min. until a slight skin forms and the casserole is bubbling. You may want to cover it at this point.
3. Meanwhile, peel and chop potatoes and cook in boiling water until tender. Mash with the milk and butter and season with salt and pepper. Remove the casserole from the oven and carefully put spoonfuls of mashed potato onto the vegetables. Increase oven to 350F and return the casserole to oven and bake, uncovered for an additional 20-30 min. until potatoes begin to crisp.
4. Add grated parmesan and broil until slightly browned. Cool slightly and serve with warm crusty bread.
