Mushroom thyme lentil pie and a Zucchini fudge cake

Testing a recipe for the Guru challenge on another forum. 

A mushroom thyme and lentil pie.  I sautéed onions, carrots, mushrooms and garlic.  To that I added some thyme,  tomato paste and sherry and cooked till soft. To thicken the mixture I added some corn starch. I added the mixture to ramekins and topped with puff pastry.  I cooked these at 400f for about 15 minutes. 



Now for the zucchini fudge cake.  I mixed butter, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, instant coffee, coco powder and flour then I added the shredded zucchini.  I added this mixture to a baking dish and topped with chocolate chips, chopped pecans and vanilla sugar.  Baked at 350f for about an hour.




Here is the zucchini fudge cake

The both all plated up

    Brother, you need to come by for a visit so I can help you with technique.  Yours is a little rough around the edges, although I'd eat it.  Very nice brother Tiny!

    Had to be a meatless dish.

    Thanks @Tinyfish . i have a few vegetarian friends (grandfathered in - I don't befriend vegetarians), so this would be a nice cook for them.
