dahl, very simple, boil up some lentils with a bit of garlic and tumeric for about an hour until it is the same consistency as mashed potato.

Or Lentil gratin

First make the lentil mixture: Chop up 2 stalks of celery, 1 carrot, some onion, garlic. Heat oil and put all the ingredients in then add about 600ml of water to 8oz of lentils. Heat for 40 minutes until lentils have gone soft.

Meanwhile make the middle layer by frying 8oz mushrooms with a bit of garlic and butter.

When the lentil mixture is done, put half of it in an oven proof dish, then put the mushrooms over this layer then place the remaining lentil mixture over the mushrooms. Top with grated cheese.
Place in the oven at gas mark 5 for 25 minutes or until the cheese has gone golden.

I make a soup which can be oureed for th ebaby and then salt added for parents.

I don't have measurements for it as I do most things by eye but roughly

3 large carrots
3-4 courgettes
3-5 celery sticks
non-salt veg stock (I think marigold is non-salt)
1 medium tomato

chop very small and then sautee the vegetables until very soft. Add water/ stock to just cover and tomato. Bring to the boil and simmer for 25 minutes.

Take some out for the baby and puree. I don't puree it for adults. I do add salt for adults.
