Lentil Loaf

Ingredients:
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, shredded
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups cooked lentils
1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1/2 cup walnuts, finely chopped or ground
1 Tablespoon ground flax seed
1/2 cup ketchup, plus more for spreading on top of loaf
2 teaspoons vegetarian worcestershire sauce
2 handfuls chopped parsley
1 teaspoon salt


Directions
Preheat oven to 350 F.

Spray a loaf pan with non-stick spray.

Saute onion, carrots, and garlic in the 2 tsp of olive oil until tender.

Add to a large mixing bowl along with all of the other ingredients.

Stir and lightly mash the mixture with the back of your mixing spoon until it comes together. If it’s too dry and won’t come together you may need to add a few splashes of water or vegetable broth. (or if it’s too wet you can add more bread crumbs)

Press mixture into loaf pan and spread a little more ketchup on top.

Bake for 1 hour, let cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.

Cut into slices- you should get eight servings. Serve with mashed potatoes, green beans, and rolls for some classic home cooked comfort food. OR on a sandwich- the best thing to do with the leftovers the next day!!!
