Gluten Free Vegan Lentil Loaf with Vegetables


Gluten Free, Nut Free, Vegan Lentil Loaf Recipe


I was trying to decide what to make for dinner tonight when I decided to try something new. Lentil Loaf has been on my recipe radar for a while now - ever since my friend made one when they had us over for dinner several years ago. I figured today was as good a day as any to give it a go, and got to work cooking down some green lentils. Once I decided on the rest of my ingredients, I was excited and a little skeptical about how it was going to turn out; but I was pleasantly surprised how amazingly delicious this vegan lentil loaf tasted. I am adding it to my mental list of favorite recipes that I need to have again.
