Easy Lentil Loaf (Vegan and Gluten Free)

Easy Lentil Loaf.  Ever  since I made my Lentil Sloppy Joes, I have been wanting to make more recipes with lentils.  So I made this lentil loaf recipe.

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.


Easy Lentil Loaf - My Whole Food Life


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.
