I don’t often cook meals. I’m more comfortable baking: cakes, muffins, cookies, the lot. But sometimes I can be found cooking “real” food. Oh, I’m a vegetarian. So it’s unlikely to find meat in the food I cook. And this recipe concerned me. Would it be tasty? Or would it be boring? I had found it in a food magazine (I cannot remember which, I’d written it down two years ago and never tried it) so hadn’t got any reviews. But I adapted it; missed bits out, added bits in…

It was a surprisingly tasty vegetarian dish. I enjoyed it, and had it two days in a row. It would be interesting to have it with pasta too and make a pasta bake out of it (add the pasta in when you put everything in the casserole dish and perhaps extend the cooking time until the pasta is done), or even boil some rice to have along side it. It’s up to you. I had it with a salad, and really enjoyed it.
