Recipe Ingredients for lentil-oat magical vegan loaf

1/2 cup walnuts
2 tbsp water or broth for steam-frying
1 onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
2 cups cooked lentils
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup vegetable broth, more as needed
1 tbsp flaxseed meal
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 tbsp soy sauce

Recipe Directions for lentil-oat magical vegan loaf

  1. Preheat the oven to 350º. Spray a loaf pan or 8x8 square baking pan with nonstick spray and set aside (an 8x8 pan makes a crisper loaf).

  2. Grind the walnuts into a coarse meal using a food processor or spice/coffee grinder. Place in a large mixing bowl and set aside.

  3. Sauté any vegetables you've chosen in the water or broth for steam-frying until soft. Add to the large mixing bowl along with all the remaining ingredients. Mix and mash together well, adding only as much liquid as needed to create a soft, moist loaf that holds together and is not runny (you may not need to add any liquid if the grains and protein are very moist). Add more binder/carbohydrate as needed if the loaf seems too wet.

  4. Press mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until cooked through.

  5. Let the loaf cool in the pan for 10 to 15 minutes, then turn out onto a plate or platter and slice. Serve with potatoes, vegetables, and vegetarian gravy, if desired.

  6. Cold leftover slices of make a great sandwich filling.
