    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.

    Minus the oats. Add 1 cup bread crumbs. Add 1 jar of tomato sauce and yummy!!

    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.


I WILL NOT say they are Vegetarian or Vegan any longer due to the database changes. I DO NOT WISH YOU TO RECOMMEND THEM. Consider them as faulty. It's your own fault if you trust them. Don't bother to review. Don't ask me a question. I won't answer. I'm not here anymore. I will NOT warrent any recipe on this site put up by me as correct due to Scripps problems. IF they claim to have fixed it, I still do not warrent any recipe as correct except the ones that I put up personally on the tripod site so use any recipe posted under my name at your own risk. Basic? Lots of luck. Now the ones at [see De Gustibus Veg*n in link on top], yeah, I will take responsiblity for all of them and the ingredients. I put them up and any errors are all mine. No the door didn't hit me on the ### but the skid marks in the parking lot are mine.
