Minus the oats. Add 1 cup bread crumbs. Add 1 jar of tomato sauce and yummy!!
Step one: Cook your lentils. I will have to make note of that NEXT time I make this. Cook your lentils. I'll update when I re-make this. :)
Great recipe, I did add sauteed onions and a lot more garlic to it!
I am not a vegetarian or vegan. That being said, I used an egg and added 1/3 of a cup of parmesan cheese and 1/4 cup of ketchup and served a slice of this loaf along side a piece of meat. I enjoyed it and my husband said it was OK and ate it (which is saying a lot). I cant wait to have the left overs for lunch. Thanks for posting.
Thanks, this was great! I omitted the egg and used my own brown rice "mix" which includes equal parts of brown rice, barley and bulgur. I topped it with my own homemade BBQ sauce (which I will post one of these days!!) It turned out wonderfully. We took it to an after church potluck and it was a hit with everyone! Thanks for posting!
This was alright in my opinion, buy my family loved it. It turned out kind of dry and broke in half when taking out of the pan. I probably contributed to the dryness, i squeezed the carrots and let the lentils drain really well. The soy sauce i think is what made the taste i didn't like.
Yum!! I had never had or made lentil loaf before and boy was I missing out! The only change I made to the recipe was to take the adice of the other reviwers and added 1 tsp of thyme and an extra garlic clove. I also made Roasted Red Pepper Sauce and served that on top of the lentil loaf. This is definately a keeper that I will be making again! Thank you for sharing your recipe.
Very good. Have made it twice. The first time it was a bit too loose so the second time I added the optional breadcrumbs. That came out perfectly. As I found it a bit on the bland side the first time I decided to up the spices the second time I made it. Added one finely diced jalapeno pepper, two more garlic cloves and a tsp thyme. Will stick with that combination the next time I make it. Thanks for posting.
We are not vegetarians though we eat a lot of meatless meals. Still, my 7 year olf's favorite foods are in the "pizza, chicken nuggets, french fry" department. So the fact that he loved this as much as he did makes it a winner with me! I used egg whites, leeks instead of scallions, a penzey's spice mix with sage as the first ingredient, and used the optional breadcrumbs. This was beautiful and came out of my well sprayed loaf pan with absolutely no problem. I do think a sauce would only have enhanced this loaf, though I served mine with Sauteed Garlic Mushrooms, applesauce, and stuffing with fruit mixed in. A wonderful meal with the cold weather upon us.
