I made this last night as a test run for Thanksgiving and it was wonderful! The celery, onion, and sage create a subtle flavor that will go perfect with my dressing. I used real eggs because I've heard varied opinions on how well egg substitutes work, and I used 2 cups each of rice and lentils instead of 3 and it still turned out delicious!

I made this for Thanksgiving with a vegan mushroom gravy---my family did not miss the "turkey" and requested that I make this again and again. I did not have egg substitute---so I used soft tofu instead----other than that I followed the recipe exactly and used quantities listed----I actually made it the day before and waited until Thanksgiving to bake after it returned to room temperature-----great recipe---thank you for sharing.

I can not beleive how good this is. It is my new obsession. My boyfriend does not like lentils and he even liked this. It is a great vegetarian main dish. I did cook my lentils and rice in veggie broth to add flavor and added a little garlic salt.
