2 tablespoons dried parsley

1 tablespoon dried red pepper flakes

1 tablespoon poultry seasoning

1 tablespoon stone ground mustard

salt and pepper to taste

Tomato Sauce Topping

1 60 z can Tomato Paste

1 tablespoon sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon onion powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

pinch of salt

Preparation

  • Add 2 cups water to one cup of lentils in a pot and turn burner on high. Once boiling, turn heat to medium low and let simmer for 30 - 45 minutes. The lentils should still be whole yet mushy. Make tomato topping while lentils are cooking. Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix with a spoon. Taste to see if it may need more salt.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Chop onion, bell pepper and mushrooms. In a large skillet add one tablespoon olive oil and put on medium heat, then add chopped vegetables and a pinch of salt. Stir and cook until onions are soft and transparent about 5-8 minutes. In a food processor, pulse oats for a few seconds until oats are small.
  • Drain tofu well and press between a towel or a few paper towels until all moister is gone. Place in a large mixing bowl and break up with a fork. You want to make sure they are in small crumbles. In the same mixing bowl, add oats, lentils, vegetables, 2 tablespoons of tomato mixture and the rest of the ingredients. Mix until it is all combined if it is too dry you can always add small amounts of water. You don't want it too wet, but it should be able to stick together nicely.
  • Spray a loaf pan or small baking dish with non-stick spray. Spoon mixture in dish, then spread the rest of the tomato topping on top evenly. If you are using ketchup, use enough to cover the top evenly. Cook for 20 minutes, then cover with foil and cook for another 10 minutes. Let cool, slice and serve. This loaf makes a great meal when pared with a green salad or sautéed kale, and a baked sweet potato.
