Roast Veggies With Tomato & Lentils

Roast Veggies With Tomato & Lentils

Lots of cold weather and snow bring the need for a hot veggie casserole. The oven is on, the house is wonderfully cozy and warm despite the winter outside. The aroma of onions and garlic fill the kitchen and 70’s music is playing. What a great way to spend a lazy Sunday.

As you probably know, (if you have visited before), Sunday, is cooking day at my house. I spend the afternoon making a couple of dishes that I put into serving size containers. Then, during the week, I grab one or two and take them to work for lunch. This week, it is a potato corn soup and this delicious Roast Veggie Casserole.

I am a leftover lover. I love eating any kind of leftovers cold straight out of the fridge (especially anything with potato or pasta), so I don’t even bother to reheat this dish, it is great hot or cold.

Speaking of cold, I hope we don’t go back into the frigid temperatures here again anytime soon. We have had a couple of really cold weeks (in the -30’s C) and this Aussie is ready for some warmer (comparatively speaking, anything north of -20 would be great) weather. One consolation is being able to cook up a storm in the cold weather, it feels very comforting and toasty with the oven on.

Enjoy,
