I came home the other day to find a box in the stairwell and I knew right away it was for me! My new GT Xpress (aka redi set go cooker) has arrived and with it, like, a million pan inserts. It came with the semicircle, the full circle, the muffin, the quarter circle AND the heart pan! I can’t even tell you how psyched I am to have this pan. I’ve been thinking about heart shaped muffins for days, but now that I find myself suddenly with a lot of free time (I was made redundant on Tuesday) I was hungry for lunch, not muffins.

I had leftover lentil sloppy joes (Snobby Joes from Veganomicon) and brown rice, so I thought, why not heart burgers?
I mixed the lentils and rice together and then added a few tablespoons of chickpea flour to bind it all together and plopped it all into the well oiled adorable little heart wells.

Next, using the BRAND NEW TIMER feature on the cooker, I baked these for 15 minutes and then flipped the removeable pan onto a plate and they came out perfectly!  I wasn’t expecting them to just fall out in little heart shapes, but they did.   It would have been pretty hard to get these out in the old GT Xpress with that spatula.

I ate two of these little guys in a pita with some ketchup.  Nice cheap lunch!

Love your blog! I went to the GTExpress site, but didn’t see the other inserts yet that came with yours. Do you know how to order those? Also – how is the non-stick holding up? That is the one complaint I saw on Amazon. Right now I’m pretty creative with a Cuisinart Sandwich Maker – but am considering moving up to this new GTE.
