Found this when searching for a loaf that I could whip up in the morning and have cold after work. Nice and easy to make, as you can see from the photo it holds together well when sliced. For those that find the peanut butter unusual, I would suggest using an egg instead. It made for a very tasty and enjoyable vegetarian meal.
This wasn't horrible, but it's not something I'd make again. The end result was pretty cohesive, but tasted strongly of the tomato/peanut butter and not much else. Would have preferred if the flavor was a bit more complex or more interesting.
Thank you for this recipe! I tweaked it a bit... didn't add peanut butter or tomato paste or breadcrumbs, instead I added 1 egg, almost 2 Tbs of ketchup, oatmeal (for the breadcrumbs) and fresh chopped cilantro. It was yummy!
Awesome, awesome! Son in law and daugthter loved it and so did I, a non-vegetarian. Believe blending a cup of the lentil/veget mix with the peanut butter is vital to keeping the loaf together. Served with mushroom gravy. Will pass on recipe to non-vegetarian friends to try since it's so easy to eat and smells so delish while baking (might try it on DH, too). Thanks for the recipe!!
This was an awesome meat alternative! I only made some small changes like curry paste in lieu of powder and added some frozen peas. Mine didn't turn out very 'loaf' like either but was still very tasty. I may add some cheddar or mozzarella, and mushrooms next time for variety.
Thanks for sharing! :)
What can I say about this, other than that I loved it! The flavor is perfect and doesn't need any tweaking in my opinion. Mine came out fairly loaf-like. It was sort of crunchy on the outside and creamy on the inside and kept its shape pretty well after being sliced. I made sure that while I was simmering the veggies most of the liquid was soaked up/evaporated before moving on, which might have helped with the texture. I was going to make sandwiches out of leftovers by frying the slices in a little vegetable oil to make veggie patties. Unfortunately the loaf didn't survive to the next day because I couldn't stop nibbling on it!
Very very savory and delicious! Mine turned out too moist , however, so I served it as a curry.
This was pretty good. I took it to a church potluck and LOTS of people LOVED it, but I guess I just need a bit more convincing! VERY interesting taste and texture - baked up well as a loaf and sliced easily. Thanks for this healthy recipe!
I've made this a couple of times now and it's always been excellent. I had friends over for dinner one time and I knew one wasn't a curry fan so I basically used just a little coriander instead the full blown curry powder. He loved it. On another note, any recipe that typically calls for curry powder, I typically use curry paste instead. You can buy this at most grocery stores that have an international section. The tastes are so much better developed.
I've cooked this recipe several times and always to rave reviews. I take a couple of lazy shortcuts: I just bung the lentils, peanut butter and breadcrumbs (I add about twice the amount of wholemeal breadcrumbs) into the pot without blending. A really tasty, filling and nutritious veggie (vegan!) recipe that pleases veggies and meateaters alike. Yum! Thank you for sharing it KB.
