I am SO excited about this recipe! I have worked on it so much...trial after trial, to get it to my liking. Nailing the flavor was fairly easy, but texture wise, it took a few trials. I have tried several lentil loaf recipes online, even the ones that claimed to be the best. The problem I found with a few of them
Mushroom Lentil Loaf--This wasn't too bad. I think I will decrease the thyme the next time though. It was a little strong for me. I added a little liquid smoke which gave it a nice flavor. It was best served with some yummy mashed potatoes.
Perfect main dish for a vegan Thanksgiving or Christmas. Lentils, toasted nuts, sautéed winter veggies all wrapped up in a FLAKY glorious puff pastry. Decadent, hearty, rich, flaky, did I mention flaky? Drizzled in Quick Vegan Onion Gravy or your favourite warmed BBQ sauce.
