Ever since I made my Lentil Sloppy Joes, I have been wanting to make more recipes with lentils. So I made this Easy Lentil Loaf. I searched Pinterest and came up with this recipe. I used that recipe as a base, but had to change out many of the ingredients to use what I had on hand. It came out so good, that I made it a second time and made notes of all my changes. The original recipe is very tasty, but it is a little too involved for me. I omitted several ingredients and also some cooking steps. I hope you enjoy my version of this Easy Lentil Loaf. If you also enjoy lentils, you may like my Red Lentil Soup.
My husband loved this so much, that he wanted me to make it a 3rd time in a row! I ate my lentil loaf with a side of roasted veggies. You can also serve it with a salad or just eat it as is. Anyway is delicious. It also freezes well. I think you could also sneak some extra veggies in here for your kids. Spinach or carrots might go well. Maybe even cauliflower.
