I got this vegetarian recipe from www.recipecenter.com. I haven't tried it yet,but I thought some people might be interested in trying this healthy dish.
- Steam the carrots until tender.
- Drain the carrots, and, if desired, reserve the water to make a sauce to serve with the loaf.
- Mix together the cooked carrots and lentils.
- Mash them coarsely with a potato masher.
- Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
- Pack the mixture into a well-oiled loaf pan.
- Decorate the top of the loaf with nut halves, if desired.
- Bake at 350 °F for 35-40 minutes, or until firm and golden brown.
- After baking, let the loaf stand for about 5 minutes, and then unmold it onto a serving platter.
- For an attractive presentation, surround the unmolded loaf with sliced ripe tomatoes, or any other colorful vegetable.
- Serve with the sauce of your choice.
Not bad! Holds together well if you let it cool first. I took others advice and changed the seasonings: used about 1 tbsp curry as well as a dash of cumin and some minced garlic. It needs a sauce. If you go with curry flavorings, I suggest a spiced yogurt.
This is a wonderful recipe but I find that omitting the sage and using 1 tablespoon of curry and a teaspoon of garlic powder results in a much better and stronger flavor.
This turned out great. I was worried about it holding together, but it did fine. I added a bit of powdered garlic but otherwise followed the directions. Used canned black lentils. I served it with a veggie gravy, a side of baked veggies and sauteed cabbage. This was a great meal. Thanks for posting!
