  • Instead of walnuts and sunflower seeds you can use other nuts, almonds or seeds.
  • Chop the lentil-mushroom-vegetable mixture only coarsely, so that you have pieces in the vegan meatloaf and do not get mush.
  • Taste the lentil mixture before putting it in the baking dish and season it more as needed.
  • Be sure to line the baking dish with parchment paper to make it easier to get the lentil roast out later.
  • Let the lentil loaf cool after baking, otherwise it might fall apart when you cut it, as it is very soft to begin with.
  • For baking, you’ll need an approx. 11 cm x 25 cm loaf pan.
  • Store the vegan lentil loaf in the refrigerator. It will keep for about 5 days. You can reheat it in the oven or in a pan with some vegetable oil before serving.
