I was never into vegetable loaves. I think it went back to the days of the mystery meat dishes we were served at summer camp. The whole thing about a loaf is that you really have no idea what kinds of bits and bobs are being mixed into them. I found this out for sure as I went searching for recipe inspiration. So many were laced with creepy soy filler, faux meat, MSG containing broths, flours and other unnecessary evils.
And then it all changed.
I’m not sure what exactly. It could have been that it has been a full month since I properly cooked anything in the kitchen (what with Costa Rica and website launches, and book promo stuff and jazz like that). Actually, that’s exactly what it was. To create new amazingness in the kitchen, I need time and inspiration and at last, I had it this weekend. I just wanted something filling,warm, and easy to inspire me to inspire you as we come to end of these cold winter months.
It was time to tackle the all mighty epitome of vegan cuisine- a proper lentil vegetable loaf. And boom. I did it.
