dry bread crumbs

This is now one of my favorite fake meat recipes. I did alter slightly. I replaced wheat germ with flax seed meal, used fresh bread crumbs, used a couple sprinkles of dried minced onion instead of fresh, used cheddar cheese and covered top with barbecue sauce. Also, replaced crushed tomatoes with 1/3 cup marinara sauce. Good texture and flavor. Will make again.
This was AWFUL - my husband and I have been married almost 5 years, and this is the first meal he has ever not liked. He is not a picky eater at all and likes all the new things I cook, but after my son and I tasted it, and after just looking at it, he didn't take one bite. It was horrible, plus it was a pain to make. Not worth the trouble, even if it wasn't any trouble. The worst meal I have ever tasted (except for my side dishes).
This is a fabulous recipe for our vegetarian household! Cook the lentils and rice with more water than usual to make the loaf not so dry. I also mix a little cheese into the loaf and then sprinkle some more on the top. This is truly the best vege-loaf I've ever had!
This was REALLY good, moist and tasty. I used fresh breadcrumbs instead of dried (4 slices wholemeal bread), green lentils instead of brown, left out the wheatgerm, added 2 cloves of crushed garlic, 1 shredded carrot and 2 sticks chopped celery. Also I topped it with BBQ sauce before cooking, and cooked for 1 1/2 hours. My husband loved it too.
WOW!!! If I hadn't made it myself I would have had to ask the cook if they were sure there wasn't any meat in it. This recipe is much better than "real" meatloaf. I added 1/2 c. of Italian stewed tomatoes and juice from a can instead of 1/3 c. and I put ketchup on the top for the last 1/2 hour of baking time. Other than that, I wouldn't (and won't) change a thing. It's also very good as cold leftover sandwiches!
I had no thyme for this recipe, so, in a panick, substituted some basil and oregano instead, which I'm sure influenced the flavour! I also used a bit more sauce than was specified, and spread some sauce and ketchup mix on the top. It turned out a little bland but was good with salt and pepper. VERY FILLING, may I add. I grated mozzarella on half the top and parmesan on the other- both were excellent! Sidenote: lentils do not mash very well when they're cold!!! Good recipe though!
I veganized this recipe (ground flax seeds and extra tomatoes instead of eggs, and brewers yeast instead of cheese). It was quite good, and I think that I could get away with feeding it to my non-vegan family without them realizing that it is not meatloaf. It was great with a side of baked tomatoes as "gravy". I will make it again.
I don't know why other reviewers thought this was dry unless they baked it longer than one hour. As I assembled it, I expected it to be dry and made some gravy in anticipation, but it was really great, texture wise. I will definitely make this again, but will tweak it a bit to make it more like Mom's. I plan to add onion, celery, and bell pepper, and top it with ketchup, maybe.
