    My fave casserole is full of veg and my kids don't even know, they love it. I dice 1kg of casserole steak, an onion and celery stalk, roughly chop a carrot, sweet potato, potato, parsnip, turnip and a swede, 2l beef stock liquid, 2tbs worchestershire sauce, tbs Dijon mustard and a can of crushed tomatoes, simmer as low as possible for 3-4 hrs stirring every hour or so, add some water if it's getting too thick. Add some green beans about 5-10 mins before it's done so they cook but still have a bit of crunch. Yum!
    Can you post the recipe for the veg lasagne?

    Sure

    Filling: Peel and chop 2 eggplants, season with salt and roast until cooked. Fry a couple of handfuls of chopped button mushrooms in a pan with butter, add 2 grated carrots, 1 grated zucchini, 1tsp minced garlic, dried basil and oregano, cook for a few minutes. Add 2 cans of crushed tomatoes, a bottle of passata and a couple of handfuls of chopped spinach. Simmer until thick, adding the eggplant in near the end.

    Topping: Thaw a 250g packet of frozen spinach, mix with 500g tub of ricotta, 1 egg, handful of grated Parmesan cheese, season with pepper and nutmeg. Mix it all together.

    Layer the sauce between fresh lasagne sheets(like Latina) I use about 3-4 layers. Spread the ricotta/spinach mix on top. Sprinkle some grated tasty or Parmesan cheese on top and cook in the oven on about 180 for 20-30 mins

    I also do the same lasagne with 500g mince meat instead of the eggplant, just put the meat in the pan after the mushrooms.

    I made pea and ham soup last week

    Two ham hocks
    250-300grams dried split peas
    2 onions chopped
    4/5 garlic cloves crushed
    4 large carrots peeled and grated
    Water

    Chucked it all in the slow cooker on high for 6-7 hours or until meat is falling off the bone, remove the hocks get all the meat off, and the rind and excess fat, add meat back into the pit.

    Stir and add more water if it's too thick

    Once you have cooled it and put the leftovers in the fridge, the soup thickens up a lot! So it goes a long way. I normally add more water with each serving after the first meal (if that makes sense)

    I have just made a chicken dish that I love, It is sort of a curry, but very mild and super tasty..
    I toast a tsp each of ground cumin and coriander, a tsp of curry powder, and then add one small deseeded chilli a bit of grated ginger and a little olive oil and cook until it smells awesome..
    I add chicken breast sliced thinly and a head of cauliflower, 3 sliced zucchini and 3 sliced carrots.. I cook until the chickens browned and the veg is tender.
    I pop a tin of condensed cream of chicken soup in and stir around, then a tin of coconut cream. Oh and I found a can of corn kernels so I popped that in too as I'm trying to clear my pantry.. Simmer, serve with steamed basmati turmeric rice.
    This stuff is so yum and easy. It doesn't take long.. Reheats well, freezes well..

    I also have a freezer full of soup for cold nights.
