I copied out this recipe shortly after you posted it, but later it occurred to wonder: are the lentils cooked or uncooked when you mix them in with the rest of the ingredients?

I'd be willing to try it, but then I Google'd a pic of it...

Looks a bit too much like Nutraloaf.

cooked.  I'm sorry for taking so long to respond.  If you're lazy I would recommend canned lentils but I don't think they'd taste the same.

:24: I was like what in the world is Nutraloaf....and it does look like it sort of, but If you're good at seasoning beans/legumes it should come out much tastier.

I'll try to keep that in mind when I'm eating it; that it's just seasoned lentils and not something that includes everything but the kitchen sink.

Lentils are very healthy. I love a really nice thick lentil soup.
