I nonetheless keep in mind my first style of lentil loaf. I used to be a newly declared vegetarian and simply returned dwelling from my first semester away in school for Thanksgiving. My mom, terrified that I wasn’t going to get sufficient protein, pulled out her dusty copy of the Moosewood Cookbook for inspiration and customary probably the most Thanksgiving-y dish she might: a ketchup-glazed lentil loaf made with oats, raisins and legumes. It did the job, however I’m pretty sure the remainder of my household of omnivores checked out me with pity whereas they loved their fried turkey.

The way to Make a Vegan Lentil Loaf

I do know this recipe looks as if it’s loads of steps, however I promise it comes collectively pretty rapidly. Utilizing a meals processor makes this recipe even simpler as you should utilize your processor to mash the lentils, grate the carrots and apples and chop the walnuts and greens. I not often pull out my meals processor simply to cut issues, however discovered it extremely helpful on this recipe!

The key to actually good lentil loaf is to verify it’s seasoned earlier than cooking. That’s the fantastic thing about a vegan loaf like this as an alternative of a meat based mostly one- you may style, including extra salt/seasonings as wanted.

Lentil loaf additionally must be an ideal stability of moist and texture. An excessive amount of moisture will make for a soggy cake and an excessive amount of texture will make issues crumbly. This recipe utilizing grated apple to assist present sweetness and extra liquid and loads of finely chopped greens and mashed lentils that maintain collectively with out falling aside. Do the pinch take a look at earlier than placing the loaf within the oven: it ought to stick collectively like meatballs.

Place it within the loaf pan, then add your glaze! Any favourite glaze will work right here, I simply did a easy mixture of ketchup, maple syrup and tangy balsamic vinegar. Don’t skip the ketchup! I like to think about it as a peace providing, a well-recognized invite to those that are nervous about biting right into a dish made from greens, nuts and lentils. In order for you it sweeter, think about including in just a little brown sugar as effectively.

Bake, then let cool. Once more, we are attempting to scale back any crumbly loafs and permitting the lentil loaf to chill barely will assist it cool after cooking. Slice, then take pleasure in! We like this with much more ketchup and/or gravy.

Notes

*This recipe comes collectively actually quick when you use your meals processor to prep the components. Use the meals processor to finely mash among the lentils, to finely chop the walnuts and greens and to shred the apple and carrots.

** Lentil loafs might be pretty difficult, so I don’t suggest subbing out components as you desire a good stability of taste and moisture. Style as you go- that is one of the best ways to determine the salt and spice stage that’s finest for you and your loved ones! The combination must be simply held collectively in a pan, it shouldn’t be crumbly.

*** I make my very own oat flour by inserting rolled oats in a blender/meals processor and whizzing till a tough flour is created. I discover that oat flour doesn’t get as gummy as utilizing an all-purpose flour does in these type of loaves.
