Let's get to it. Here is what you will need.
The Flax Egg
3 tbsp flax meal
9 tbsp plain unsweetened milk
Stir to combine in a bowl and let sit for at least 15 minutes.
1 cup lentils
3 cups water
1 bay leaf
Put those in a pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes. All or most of the water should be absorbed and the lentils should be soft.
1/2 cup TVP
1/2 cup boiled veg broth
2 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp tamari
Put everything in a bowl and stir to combine.
In a large bowl, combine 2 cups of lentils, the tvp mix, the flax egg, 1/2 cup finely diced gree bell pepper and 1 finely diced onion. Stir to combine. Give it a taste and add salt or other seasoning to your liking.
Pour the mix in a loaf pan and smooth out the top. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cover with some organic ketchup or tomato sauce. Either works great. Return to the oven and continue baking for 30 more minutes.
Remove from the oven and let it sit for about 20 minutes before serving. Just so it can cool and set up. Serve with some mashed taters and veggie of choice.
