This is now one of my favorite fake meat recipes. I did alter slightly. I replaced wheat germ with flax seed meal, used fresh bread crumbs, used a couple sprinkles of dried minced onion instead of fresh, used cheddar cheese and covered top with barbecue sauce. Also, replaced crushed tomatoes with 1/3 cup marinara sauce. Good texture and flavor. Will make again.

This is a fabulous recipe for our vegetarian household! Cook the lentils and rice with more water than usual to make the loaf not so dry. I also mix a little cheese into the loaf and then sprinkle some more on the top. This is truly the best vege-loaf I've ever had!

This was REALLY good, moist and tasty. I used fresh breadcrumbs instead of dried (4 slices wholemeal bread), green lentils instead of brown, left out the wheatgerm, added 2 cloves of crushed garlic, 1 shredded carrot and 2 sticks chopped celery. Also I topped it with BBQ sauce before cooking, and cooked for 1 1/2 hours. My husband loved it too.
