I love lentil loaf. I make it just like my mom's meatloaf, but I use lentils instead of beef and add grated mushrooms, garlic, tomatoes, onions, peppers, and even sometimes carrots. I also use eggs and oatmeal to hold it together. It works out great.

Lentils complement a vegetable stew. Cook with vegetable stock, add chopped celery, onions, carrots, mushrooms, zucchini, red & green peppers, spinach - season & cook. drizzle a little canola or olive light oil over and serve with a warm multigrain bread. spinach adds a special flavor.
