Best Vegan Lentil Loaf Recipe – 8 Options

Best Vegan Lentil Loaf Recipe

I’m surprised I did a post on the best vegan lentil loaf recipe. To be honest, I never cared much for normal meatloaf growing up. I probably have had meatloaf only once in my life, and didn’t like it very much. The only thing I did like about meatloaf was the sauce or the gravy that accompanied it.

Fast forward about 20 years and I was craving that gravy. What can I eat with gravy, I thought. Well, being on a (mostly) anti-inflammatory diet I can’t have meatloaf or potatoes but what I can have is a lentil loaf. Aha! Brilliant! Well done Kiran. 🙂

And so, I was on the search for the best lentil loaf recipe. My friend Fatima was coming over for dinner and I need a recipe that would not disappoint.

I searched for a really long time for the best vegan lentil loaf recipe. In searching for the best vegan lentil loaf recipe I also came across of many vegan loafs that were made without lentils. I did a separate post on these non-lentil loafs recipes that you can find on my blog post for the best vegan meatloaf recipe.

I hunted for lentil loaf recipes that were clean, made with whole food ingredients, along with being easy to make and delicious. I tried to search for unique recipes that would cater to everyone’s unique dietary needs and preferences (God knows, I have my share of them!).
