Hazelnut and Lentil Loaf

This recipe is suitable for a: vegetarian or vegan diet

Category: Main Dishes - Other



1 tablespoon oil

1 onion, chopped

1-5 cloves of crushed garlic, to taste

1 cup green lentils

2 grated carrots

2 cups water

125g (4oz) hazelnuts, finely chopped

1 cup wholemeal bread crumbs

1 tablespoon soy sauce

4 tablespoons tahini

salt and pepper to taste

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme (or 1 teaspoon dried)




Heat oil in pan, add onion, fry until soft. Add garlic, carrot, lentils and water and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for about 40-50 minutes, unitl lentils are becoming tender, stirring occasionally. Take lid of and simmer for another 10 minutes, allowing moisture to escape.

Mix in the nuts, breadcrubms, parsley, thyme, soy sauce, tahini, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly

Line a 5 cup loaf tin with foil to cover the bottom and long sides. Brush with oil, spoon mixture in, and cover with foil. Bake in a pre-heated moderate oven, 190C (375F) for about 45 to 50 minutes.

Leave in tin for a couple of minutes when you take it out, then loosen it with a knife, and turn out. Serve with a piquant style sauce.

Additional comments:


You can also use walnuts if you want more omega-3, but I prefer the taste of the hazelnuts. Takes a while to cook but if you make a double batch you will find it freezes and keeps very well.

Serves at least 6.

Adapted and amalgamated from 2 separate loaves in Margaret Fulton's Book of Vegetarian Cooking.

Recipe source: This recipe is mine or I have altered it from its original version.

I made this last night and did use walnuts because it's what I had available.

It was very good but it fell apart, even after letting it cool a bit. Even so, I'll make it again.
