What We're Cooking! - Meatless Monday Lentil Patties with Gluten Free Macaroni and Cheese

Meatless Monday is an initiative of the Monday Campaigns in cooperation with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. This Campaign helps you to begin each week with Healthy and inexpensive meat alternatives.

Our Meatless Monday was Lentil Patties along with Gluten Free Macaroni and Cheese.

The Recipe for the Lentil Patties began with this one from Simply Trini. I did make some changes to it, of course! Instead of bread crumbs I used gluten free corn flake crumbs. I added parmesan cheese and I cooked my onion, garlic, celery and green pepper before adding it to the mix. I used Arrowroot starch in place of the flour. These were pretty tasty in addition to being incredibly healthy and very inexpensive to make. This one is a keeper!

Next up was a gluten free Macaroni and Cheese.I started with a Bechamel Sauce. I added 8 ounces of grated cheddar, a cup of grated parmesan cheese, 2 TBSP of mustard, a couple of dashes of hot sauce. I mixed 2 eggs with an 8 ounce container of greek yougurt and then mixed it with the cheese sauce. I then mixed in my pasta. I used Heartland Pasta Penne, I put the whole thing into a greased baking dish, sprinkled parmesan cheese on the top and baked at 350 for 40 minutes.


This was very yummy and my daughter (who LOVES mac and cheese) really enjoyed this one. For more Meatless Monday ideas you can visit their web site.
