Recipe

To be completely honest, I am normally not a big fan of vegetarian meatloaf, or any meatloaf for that reason.  Maybe it's because it wasn't something my mother never made  growing up or maybe it's just not my thing.  However I have recently become a bit of a convert after trying this lentil meatloaf recipe from a friend.  Between the veggies and lentils, and let's be honest a lot of of barbecue sauce, this is a meatloaf I can get behind.  It also freezes well, so consider doubling up the recipe and saving one for later.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Simmer the lentils with the broth and a pinch of salt until they absorb all the broth and are tender, about 25 minutes.
  3. In a food processor, pulse the carrot, celery, garlic, onion, and mushrooms until finely diced. You could also dice by hand.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a skillet and cook vegetables until just soft.
  5. Mash about half the lentils using a fork in a large bowl. Add the veggies, breadcrumbs, tomato sauce, egg, and spices. Press into a standard bread pan.
  6. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
