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.
I will have to try this again with more seasoning - I thought it was bland. It didn't stay together either, but I put way too many lentils in. I should have measured them and not relied on the measurement listed on the bag of lentils.
This was good! It didn't hold together very well and I think it could have used additional seasoning. I added thyme but other herbs and spices would have worked. Thanks for sharing.
I like this simple recipe. I like to try different vegan loaves and this is a good one. I replaced the walnuts with oatmeal to keep it lower in fat and the bread crumbs with flour because that's what I had. I used ground flax seed (mix with 1 tb. flax and 3 tb. water to replace one egg) for egg replacer. It seems best served with some type of sauce. We used ketchup. I used half wild rice and half brown rice.
i had very high hopes for this, made it for thanksgiving and it was very bland and too earthy tasting. I suppose with some tweaks i could make it more to my liking, but it took a long time to make, so I will probably just try another recipe.
Great recipe! This is the easiest (and tastiest) lentil loaf I have tried. The walnuts were great, adding a little crunch to every bite. I added 1 shredded carrot and a pinch of celery seed to the original recipe and served it with steamed veggies & vegan gravy.
