i have 4 small jars of C&G lentil and veg bake that i bought before i started to wean dd. I then decided to do BLW so have never used them. Does anyone have any idea what i could turn them into that could be used as a finger food? i dont want to waste them. they arent too runny, but is there something i could add to them to turn them into croquettes or something?
any ideas welcome! TIA

Beetroot Thu 05-Jul-07 20:45:15

LucyJones Thu 05-Jul-07 20:45:51
