Lentil loaf made w/ cereal & onion soup

Submitted by: NOVELAFAN

Introduction

This recipe is different than the majority of the other recipes I've found on the net, or on here. Hope you Enjoy it. I'm not a vegetarian, but am always looking for cheaper, healthier alternatives to meat. I have a friend who is a vegetarian and she loves it too. Even die hard meat eaters have been known to enjoy this. This recipe is different than the majority of the other recipes I've found on the net, or on here. Hope you Enjoy it.

Ingredients

    2 cups cooked lentils
    1 pkg onion soup mix
    2 eggs
    1 medium onion diced
    1/3 cup olive oil
    1 1/2 cups crushed up bran flakes
    1/2 skim milk
    garlic, 3 or 4 cloves

    Makes 6 servings.

Directions

In bowl mix together well, egg, milk, oil,.
Add in lentils, cereal flakes, onion soup mix, spices.
Again, mix together.

Pour into a non stick loaf pan, or one sprayed with non stick oil. Bake in 400 degree oven for approximately 50 minutes to 1 hour, or until top gets browned and a little crispy. (Depends on your preference)

For those of you not used to cooking with lentils (I wasn't) a 1 lb bag (16 oz) makes three - 2 cup servings, so if I don't make two loaves at a time, I always make a whole bag of lentils and freeze the extra two containers of lentils to save time the next time I use this recipe.

Makes 6 servings

Great recipe to double and put one in the freezer for a later date.

  • Doubled the recipe for 2 loaves. Subbed seasoned breadcrumbs for cereal, canola oil for olive oil, & almond milk for skim. Next time I will put a tad less bread crumbs. VERY good. My grandson had 3 slices! We all liked the taste very much. Satisfies the longing for meat loaf for us. Thanks. - 11/3/11
