This is a super easy and budget-friendly lentil loaf recipe that I've been making for a while now. With a decent side, it makes a excellent hot meal on the cheap for vegetarians.

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine water and salt in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until lentils are soft and most of the water is evaporated, about 30 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Generously spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.

  • Drain and partially mash lentils, then scrape into a mixing bowl. Stir in oats, Cheddar cheese, and onion. Add tomato sauce, egg, garlic, parsley, basil, and pepper; mix until well combined. Spoon into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top with the back of the spoon.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until top of loaf is dry, firm, and golden brown, 30 to 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Run a sharp knife around the edges of the pan and invert onto a serving platter.

Great recipe. Will join the rotation of our favorite recipes. I like lentils and my wife is not crazy about them. She loved the recipe as well. Thank you Mike! Read More
