This lentil loaf is one of our teenage daughter’s favorite vegan main dishes. In-fact our whole family really enjoys it. It is very flavorful, and the texture is very similar to actual meatloaf. It’s been fun trying new recipes, and a new way of eating since our daughter began her vegan journey. It has really opened us up to trying new things.
