Sunday night feels like loaf night
This was my list of ingredients, as suggested by the Magical Loaf Studio, and my alterations noted:
1/2 cup peanuts (1/2 cup peanut butter)
2 TB vegetable oil
One onion, diced (1/2 onion, diced)
One large garlic clove, minced (3!!)
One large carrot, peeled and grated (2 medium)
One cup mushrooms, cleaned and chopped
2 cups cooked lentils (closer to 3 cups, and they were cooked in an onion broth)
1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs (made from 12 grain bread, and half a cup of wheat germ was added)
1/4 to 1/2 cup vegetable broth, as needed (not needed!)
3 TB potato flour (used same amount of Kingsmill Egg Replacer)
1 tsp. Italian seasoning (plus 1/2 tsp sage)
2 TB nutritional yeast flakes
2 TB ketchup
Several dashes vegetarian Worcestershire Sauce
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 TB soy sauce
1 potato, thinly sliced
1/2 zucchini, chopped
I cooked the lentils up with the onion bouillon and mixed with the diced carrots in the bowl. Then the zucchini, onion and mushrooms were sauteed and reduced, then added to the mix. While this was going on, I ate a small bowl of some extra lentils, because I'm greedy like that.
The rest of the ingredients were added to the mix, minus the potatoes, and spread into a greased dish. Then, I layered the potatoes on top to make a sort of "loafpie".
It was great. The potatoes on top got a bit crispy and chippy, and the flavour was deep. We ate the loaf with mushroom gravy and steamed broccoli, and we ate too much! Defintely a recipe we'll try variations of again and again.
