Vegan Lentil Loaf! This plant-based lentil loaf recipe is packed with healthy vegetables, spices and of course- lentils! Perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
*This recipe comes together really fast if you use your food processor to prep the ingredients. Use the food processor to finely mash some of the lentils, to finely chop the walnuts and vegetables and to shred the apple and carrots.
** Lentil loafs can be fairly tricky, so I don’t recommend subbing out ingredients as you want a good balance of flavor and moisture. Taste as you go- this is the best way to figure out the salt and spice level that’s best for you and your family! The mixture needs to be easily held together in a pan, it shouldn’t be crumbly.
*** I make my own oat flour by placing rolled oats in a blender/food processor and whizzing until a rough flour is created. I find that oat flour doesn’t get as gummy as using an all-purpose flour does in these kind of loaves.
