Easy Red Lentil Loaf Recipe [Vegan and Gluten Free]

Easy Lentil Loaf Recipe
Hey Love Bees! πŸ
 
In just six weeks time I’ll be heading off on my solo backpacking trip across Europe. It’s exciting and terrifying in so many ways, but I know it’ll be a completely life-changing adventure! πŸ’•
 
For now though, I’m keeping busy with work, trying to make a few extra pennies before I go! I’m also being frugal with my spending, so that I’ll have more money available for my travels.
 
With my seriously tight budget in mind, one cost-effective dish that I’m loving right now is this hearty red lentil loaf! It’s easy to make, tastes amazing and is super healthy as well! πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
 
Red Lentil Loaf by Chrissy Faery
Lentils are such a great source of protein and they’re rich in minerals like iron, so they’ll help to support your immune system, and will boost your energy levels too!
 
Not only this, but lentils are also extremely filling due to their high fibre content and their complex carbs, which release energy more slowly and keep you feeling fuller for longer. (This also makes them ideal for weight loss!)
 
This red lentil loaf is slightly spicy with tones of garlic and onion. It can be eaten with tomato relish or gravy, and may be paired with these beautiful root veggies, to create the perfect vegan roast! πŸ’•

    I keep forgetting about lentils for some reason, I like them, but rarely eat them. This sounds like a good recipe to try

  2. Thena says:

    Great recipe, adding to my bookmark page to try!

  3. This looks and sounds delicious. I love lentils and want to start getting in to meal prepping so this would be perfect!

  4. Helen says:

    This looks and sounds amazing. I love lentils and add a good sprinkle to almost everything I cook. They’re great for bulking meals up and so filling too.
    I’m going to pin this to try myself thank you.

  5. Ann says:

    I love this recipe, the lentil loaf was yummy !

  6. Ashleigh says:

    I actually have some mixed lentils that I’m not sure what to do with, so I might give this a try!

  7. I have been told to add more bread to my diet but am not a fan, so this might be the answer to my problem.

    • Ohh, yay! I really hope you like it – I’m not a fan of bread either! πŸ˜› This is more like a vegan meatloaf than a bread, but it’s still a really great source of fibre! xxx

  8. I’ve not made one of these for a long time. I make one that has veggie haggis in it which is really good. I serve it with a dairy-free whisky cream sauce, neeps and tatties. Yum!

  9. I loooove lentils! They’re so good and so good FOR you! This recipe sounds yummy!
