Ingredients

  • 2 cups uncooked lentils or 4 cups of cooked lentils
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion half cup or so, minced
  • 2 celery stalks half cup or so
  • 2 chopped carrots half cup or so
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste or ketchup
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley or 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • salt and pepper
  • Glaze
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar

Instructions

  • Boil 2 cups lentils in 5 cups of water. Leave them until tender.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Chop the onion, celery and carrot as small as possible. I use the food processor and press several times until they are minced.
  • In a pan add olive oil to heat and add the vegetables with a good pinch of salt.
  • When they are already beginning to brown add the garlic. Leave it for about 10 min.
  • Add the lentils with the remaining ingredients and cooked vegetables in a large bowl.
  • Add salt and pepper.
  • Put the mixture into a loaf pan, if it is not the mold that you're going to serve it, line it with parchment paper.
  • Press it with a spoon, until firm and tight.
  • To prepare the glaze, just mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  • Spoon over the lentil-loaf and bake.
  • Put it in the oven for 30-45 min. until golden and feels firm.
