Introduction

I was tired of trying to find a vegan lentil loaf recipe I really liked that would appeal to my three-under-three. So I made one. You can use onion instead of shallot and up the spices and such, but I keep it on the underseasoned side for the kids.

Ingredients

    2 cups green lentils, cooked
    1/2 cup diced shallot
    4 slices whole wheat bread, diced
    3 tbsp ketchup
    5 cherry tomatoes (or half a large tomato)
    1 1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1 cup (approx) water

Tips

For kids, I cut the loaf into small cubes and give them a little ketchup on the side for finger-food dipping. We serve it with baked sweet potato and steamed broccoli.


Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

1. Prepare lentils as you normally would. (I simmer a cup of dried lentils in 2 cups of boiling water for about 40 minutes.)

2. Put shallots, bread, ketchup, and seasonings in the blender and blend until they are a paste.

3. Slowly add in the lentils, half a cup at a time, blending each time until smooth.

4. Scoop a third of the recipe into each mini loaf pan. You can spray the loaf pans beforehand, but I find it still sticks. I line mine with parchment paper.

5. Cook in a 400-degree oven for 40 minute. (optional) add a ketchup glaze on top in the last ten minutes. Adds calories, though!

6. LET COOL BEFORE REMOVING FROM PAN (seriously, it'll fall apart if you don't.

Serving Size: makes three mini loafs, which in our house is 6 servings.

Number of Servings: 6
