Lentils are a pretty amazing ingredient. They're not only high in protein and fiber, but they also make an effective replacement for meat. Combining quinoa and cooked lentils together actually creates a crumbly texture, just like ground beef. This recipe will taste great to nonvegetarians, too. Serve it at a dinner party and know that you'll make everyone happy.
You can sneak extra vegetables into the lentil loaf. So if you have leftover roasted vegetables, puree them and add them to the loaf. You can also add mushrooms, chopped spinach or kale, or frozen peas. It's a delicious way to add nutrition into your diet and get picky eaters to eat their veggies.
