Red Lentil Loaf

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 375


1 cup dry red lentils
2 cups water
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 cup oats flakes
1 cup grated carrot
2 scallion chopped
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 egg beaten, or egg replacer to equal 1 egg
3 tablespoons tamari sauce
6 cloves garlic pressed
1 teaspoon dried sage


1. Pick through the lentils to remove any dirt, stones, or damaged legumes, then wash and drain. Place in a large pot with the water, and cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes, or until the water is absorbed.

2. While the lentils are cooking, mix together the rice, oat flakes, carrot, scallions, bread crumbs, egg, tamari, garlic, and sage in a large bowl.

3. Add the cooked lentils to the rice-oat mixture and mix well.

4. Oil a 4-x-8-x-2-inch loaf pan and sprinkle the sides and bottom with oat flakes to keep the loaf from sticking. Pack the loaf mixture into the pan and bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 40 minutes.

5. Remove from the oven and let stand 5–10 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the loaf and remove it from the pan onto a serving platter. Serve with a green salad.

*To make bread crumbs, tear a slice of whole-grain bread into pieces, place in a blender or food processor, and process into fine crumbs. Freeze any leftover crumbs.
