I made this recipe foolishly thinking that I would have leftovers for my lunch the next day. My family devoured it. Found my way back to the blog today as I'm making this along with a sweet potato casserole to take to the in-laws for Easter supper.
Thank you for a lovely recipe.
Can I put this together a day in advance and then just pop it in the oven when it's time to serve??
I made it 2 nights ago and it was AMAZING. I'm having company this weekend and I know everyone will love it!
Hi! I really enjoyed this recipe, but found the lentils needed just a little more flavor overall...would it be ok to cook them in vegetable broth instead of water?
If I need to roast vegetables at 400 degrees F, is it possible to put this loaf in the oven at 400 but for much less time?
this sounds terrible.
I get it- you don't eat meat- but what the hell is this crap?
Make lentil soup.
Its like you went vegan but never learned what vegetarian dishes look like in TRADITIONAL cooking. Dont want to eat turkey? THis is what you get- make your bed and lie in it.
Theres MANY vegetarian cuisine worldwide that wasnt made by hippies with dreadlocks and stretched earlobs, and its healthy and delicious and doesnt ry and imitate MEAT.
Hi, this may be a stupid question but what kind of lentils did you use? I only have red ones as I've just started experimenting with them and I know there are a variety out there. This dish looks awesome so I can't wait to try it :)
Oh my. What must it be like to be the type of person that looks at a picture of food and gets angry about it? Delicious steamy food at that! It must be a stressful way to live.
Mental note: I am allowed to eat lentils, but only in soup form. Do not put lentils in loaf pan. Do not smush together. NOT ALLOWED.
And vegans are the ones telling people how to eat... *sigh*
Anyway! I've made this twice and it's fantastic. For some reason the recipe didn't really look impressive to me (the other loaf recipe I use has about a gajillion ingredients) but when it's put together, wow! The flavors and textures are all so nice together. The spinach is such a nice addition. Only change I make is adding a Tbsp of nutritional yeast flakes to the lentil batter. I find it hard to resist adding it to most things! It was also easier to whip up than I thought it would be. It seemed kind of fancy :) I'll be making again and again. Thanks!
I modified this to accommodate my ten year old: added butternut squash to the lentils, & skipped the spinach & mushrooms in the recipe, instead I made a wild mushroom leek gravy & a spinach salad- divine. I will definitely make this again, and will try the original as well!

This was my first try at a lentil loaf and was incredibly good. I added some sweet potato to the mash and used a square pan so it wasn't really a loaf, more like 3layered shepards pie. Was really great, thanks!
