Decided to do this recipe and then realised that I didn't have any lentils. Substituted 1 cup of mashed chickpeas instead, and 1cm of diced root ginger and my meat loving partner asked me for seconds!. Thanks Shannon W.

I keep re-reading the recipe to see what I did this was very tasty...but very, very dry and crumbly. I followed the directions....but I must have skipped something...

I made an Indian version with raw cashews and 2 t curry powder instead of the soy sauce, ginger, and cumin. Also used a can of mushrooms (chopped up) instead of zucchini as I had none. I was afraid that with no egg to hold it together it would fall apart, so I packed it tightly into the loaf pan. It held together quite well. Very tasty and healthy - thanks for posting!
