"This recipe makes 2 loaves so you can freeze one for later or feed a big family. A perfect dinner loaf, but would also would make great open-face sandwiches for lunch. This recipe is easy and after you've cooked the lentils, everything else is stirred into a bowl, and transferred to a loaf pan to bake."

  1. Bring water and lentils to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until lentils are tender, about 40 minutes. Drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease two 5x9-inch loaf pans.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion, spinach, carrot, and garlic in the hot oil until onion is tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Mix lentils, onion mixture, bread, vegetable broth, eggs, 1/4 cup ketchup, soup mix, parsley, basil, and black pepper in a bowl. Divide mixture into the prepared loaf pans. Drizzle 2 tablespoons ketchup over each loaf.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through, about 50 minutes. Let loaves sit for 10 minutes before serving.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • I have used several different flavors of the Lipton(R) soup mix. The onion and the mushroom onion both taste VERY good with this recipe!

this recipe turned out strange. It was mushy. I prefer tvp loaf more for a meat loaf type recipe.

Very delicious! Nice and moist. Tastes great with/without ketchup.
