Recipe Ingredients for VEGETARIAN LENTIL LOAF

1 1/2 cups lentils
3 1/2 cups vegetable broth (or water)
2 onions, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp olive oil
2 cups rice (pre-cooked)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup ketchup or barbecue sauce
1/2 tsp sage
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

Recipe Directions for VEGETARIAN LENTIL LOAF

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. In a large soup or stock pot, simmer the lentils in water or vegetable broth until cooked, about 30 minutes. Drain thoroughly then mash the lentils until they are half mashed.

  3. Sautee the onions and garlic in olive oil for 3 to 5 minutes, or until soft.

  4. Combine the onions, garlic and olive oil with the mashed lentils and add the rice, salt, ketchup or barbecue sauce, sage, and Italian seasoning.

  5. Gently press the mixture into a lightly greased loaf pan. Drizzle a bit of extra ketchup on top if desired.

  6. Bake for 1 hour. Allow to cool slightly before serving, as this will help the lentil loaf to firm up.
