Oh dear, just went to check recipe book shelf for you and find no Cranks book there. Must have chucked it out and am a bit angry with myself for that.

Mind you with the number of lentil weavers on Mumsnet I'm sure someone will come to your rescue soon smile.

as if by magic.....

Base:
Fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs 6oz (175g)
Butter or marg 2oz (50g)
Cheddar cheese, grated 4oz (100g)
mixed nuts, chopped 4oz (100g)
mixed herbs 1/2 tsp
garlic clove, crushed 1

sauce:
3 medium sized leeks
4 tomatoes
2oz (50g) butter or marg
100% wholemeal flour 1oz (25g)
1/2 pint Milk
salt & pepper to taste
4bsp fresh wholemeal breadcumbs

Pur breadcrumbs in basin, rub in the butter then add the remaining ingredients. Press mixture into a 11 x 7 tin. Bake at 220c (425f / gas mark 7) for 15-20 mins until golden brown.

Meanwhile, slice the leeks and chop the tomatoes. Melt the butter in the saucepan. Saute the leeks for 5 mins then stir in the flour. Add the milk, stirring constantly, then bring to the boil, reduce heat to a simmer. Add the remaining ingredients, except bread crumbs, and simmer for a few mins to soften the tomatoes. Check seasoning. Spoon the vegetable mixture over the base, sprinkle with breadcrumbs and heat through in the oven at 180c (350f / gas mark 4) for 20 mins.

Another cry for help, I've also lost, given away, misplaced my Cranks recipe book and have vegetarian friends coming for dinner tomorrow, does anyone have the recipe for Aduki bean, leek, mushroom casserole with herb dumplings, I've made it so often but I'm still hopeless without the recipe! I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed..
