Gluten-Free Vegetable Cottage Pie

Here is a quick, easy, and tasty gluten-, MSG-, soy- and dairy-free recipe!  I created this recipe nearly 20 years ago after enjoying something very similar in a small tea-house in New York City.  I thought I would share.  It can be served as a side dish or as a main vegetarian dish.  The flavors are supposed to be very subtle, so if you are looking for something more robust, add your favorite seasonings.


  • 2 cups of coarsely chopped Leeks
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cups quartered and sliced zucchini
  • 2 cups quartered and sliced summer squash
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons chopped parsley
  • 1/8 teaspoon savory
  • Black pepper as desired
  • Mashed potatoes for topping (prepared instant or home-made)
  • Parmesan Cheese for topping if desired


– Preheat oven to 350.

– Steam squash until almost done.

– Mix all ingredients except for mashed potatoes; put into casserole dish.  Bake uncovered for 20 minutes.

– Remove from oven; top evenly with potatoes and cheese.  Bake 20 minutes longer.

Makes 4 servings.
