Prepare the Meat Loaf

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a loaf pan.

  2. In a medium saucepan, boil lentils in three cups water until soft. (This may take half an hour or more.) Strain.

  3. Remove lentils to a mixing bowl and mash. Add onions, oats, cheese, egg, tomato sauce, and seasoning. Spread in prepared pan.

  4. Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until the top of the loaf is dry, firm, and golden brown.

  5. Cool for a few minutes before slicing.


You can replace the grated cheese with an equal amount of barbecue sauce. (I prefer the cheese-based dish.) This “meat loaf” can be served as is, or topped with a (mushroom) gravy or white sauce.
