IntroductionLiving on a grad school budget. Living on a grad school budget.
0.25 Cup Onion, chopped very small
1 Medium Carrot, chopped very small
1 Cup Cooked Lentils
1 Cup Cooked Pinto Beans
1 Cup Cooked Rice
1/2 Block Extra Firm Tofu
Preheat oven to 350
Chop onion and carrot. Squeeze water out of the 1/2 block tofu and crumble into onion/carrot bowl. Smash lentils and pinto beans until it makes a pastes (i used a separate bowl for this, then transfered). Beat egg and add to mixture. The rice should be done by now, add to the bowl and mix together.
I used premade cajun spices to flavor the loaf, mix well together. Spray a 9x9 pan and add mixture. Cook for 30 minutes. Let cool to set before cutting.
(Added a little bit of ketchup in the picture to taste test. Didn't add it in to the calorie count.)
Also can remove the egg to make it Vegan. I did the first time and the meal was still good, just didn't hold together too well.
