VEGAN LENTIL LOAF #Vegetarian #HealthyRecipes

This is the best veggie lover and vegetarian meatloaf! This simple lentil portion is loaded down with veggies and lentils, and is far better than the work of art!

This formula created entertainingly. One night a couple of months prior, my family was eating at one of our most loved nearby Italian eateries. My humblest love began experiencing considerable difficulties and went on a little stroll with Yummy Hubby. They walked around a cafe and returned to our table enthusiastically visiting about "Meatloaf Mondays" at the coffee shop. As you can envision, I promptly started conjuring up approaches to make a meatless Meatloaf Monday at home. I attempted a veggie lover lentil meatloaf formula however it was simply excessively soft, and I needed to dispose of the dairy. After around 5 attempts, I've gotten the lentil portion down.

This simple veggie filled veggie lover and vegetarian lentil portion is far and away superior to the great meatloaf! Make certain to utilize green or darker lentils, not red.

VEGAN LENTIL LOAF #Vegetarian #HealthyRecipes

INGREDIENTS

  •  2 cups cooked French lentils (I used vacuum packed steamed lentils from the produce section. Be sure your lentils aren't too wet from cooking.)
  •  1/2 yellow onion, diced
  •  2 carrots, diced
  •  2 celery stalks, diced
  •  1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  •  1 ¼ cup diced crimini mushrooms
  •  2 cloves garlic, minced
  •  2 tablespoons tomato paste
  •  1 tablespoon bbq sauce
  •  2 tablespoons flax meal
  •  1 tablespoon dried parsley
  •  ¼ teaspoon salt
  •  ¼ teaspoon pepper
  •  ½ cup quick oats
  •  ½ cup breadcrumbs
  •  3 bell peppers, halved and seeded (optional)
  •  1/3 cup ketchup
  •  pinch brown or coconut sugar

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute onion, carrots, celery, pepper, and mushrooms with a pinch of salt and pepper until softened. Add the garlic and saute another minute longer.
  2. In a food processor, pulse together the lentils, cooked vegetables, tomato paste, bbq sauce, flax meal, parsley, salt, pepper, oats, and breadcrumbs. You may have to work in batches if your food processor is small. Do not puree, but blend into a chunky dough. You want some bits of veggies for texture.
  3. Form the dough into a ball and place on the prepared cookie sheet. Form into a "loaf" shape as shown in the pictures. Alternatively, fill bell pepper halves with the lentil mixture and place in a baking dish. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and spread the ketchup on top. Sprinkle with sugar to help caramelize the topping. Bake for another 10 minutes. Let the lentil loaf cool at least 10 minutes as it firms up during this time.
