Easy Lentil Loaf

Rated as 2.67 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe makes 2 loaves so you can freeze one for later or feed a big family. A perfect dinner loaf, but would also would make great open-face sandwiches for lunch. This recipe is easy and after you've cooked the lentils, everything else is stirred into a bowl, and transferred to a loaf pan to bake."

  1. Bring water and lentils to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until lentils are tender, about 40 minutes. Drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease two 5x9-inch loaf pans.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion, spinach, carrot, and garlic in the hot oil until onion is tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Mix lentils, onion mixture, bread, vegetable broth, eggs, 1/4 cup ketchup, soup mix, parsley, basil, and black pepper in a bowl. Divide mixture into the prepared loaf pans. Drizzle 2 tablespoons ketchup over each loaf.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through, about 50 minutes. Let loaves sit for 10 minutes before serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I have used several different flavors of the Lipton® soup mix. The onion and the mushroom onion both taste VERY good with this recipe!

It was not good. I reduced the liquid but it was still mushy.

this recipe turned out strange. It was mushy. I prefer tvp loaf more for a meat loaf type recipe.

Very delicious! Nice and moist. Tastes great with/without ketchup.
