  • Lentil Loaf
  • 2 cups prepared brown lentils
  • 1/2 cup white or yellow onion, diced (1/2 onion)
  • 1 large carrot, diced (about 1/4 cup)
  • 2 stalks celery, diced (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/2 cup red pepper, diced (half a red pepper)
  • 1 1/4 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 2 cloves, garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp barbecue sauce of choice
  • 1 Tbsp yellow mustard
  • 2 Tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 1 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs (I used Dave's Bread and made my own), but prepared bread crumbs is fine
  • Garnishes
  • Extra barbecue sauce for the top after cooking


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Chop onion, celery, mushrooms, red pepper, and carrot (diced). I used the small blade on my favorite Vegetable Chopper

  4. In a large skillet, cook onion, garlic, mushrooms, carrots and celery and salt and pepper until browned. (You may use a little vegetable broth to avoid sticking )
  5. In a food processor, pulse prepared lentils, quick oats, flaxseed, bread crumbs, cooked vegetables, tomato paste, bbq sauce, and parsley. The finished product should be chunky; do not over pulse.
  6. Place dough into the loaf pan, and gently press the top to form a bread shape on top. I used a silicone loaf pan or place parchment paper in the base of a glass loaf pan. If you don't have a loaf pan, you may form the dough into a loaf shape on a cookie sheet.
  7. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 35 minutes covered.
  8. Uncover after 35 minutes, and drizzle additional barbecue sauce on top. Return to oven for 10 minutes, uncovered.

  10. Remove from oven; recover and let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. I find it easier to remove it from the pan prior to cutting.

When you say "prepared lentils"... how are they prepared?

Lentils are much easier to cook than other legumes. You can follow the directions on the package or follow the link for an easy recipe. It looks like canned lentils are available too.

I have a simpler lentil "meatloaf" recipe I make sometimes. You boil the lentils until tender, then drain; it doesn't take very long. Sometimes I double or triple the lentils, then drain and freeze in portions ready for the recipe so it saves prep time the next time I make it.
