1/2 cup Green lentils, raw
1 tbsp Flaxseed meal (ground) (for flax egg)
3 tbsp Water (for flax egg)
2 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
3 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
3/4 cup sliced Yellow onion
1/2 cup chopped Red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped Carrots
1/2 cup diced Celery
1 cup whole White mushrooms (diced)
1/4 cup Sun-dried tomatoes (diced)
2 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Oregano, dried
1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
1/2 cup Chickpea flour
1/4 cup Flaxseeds
1/2 cup Walnuts (chopped)
3/4 cup shredded Dairy-free cheddar cheese shreds, Daiya
1/4 cup Parsley, fresh (optional)
2 tbsp hulled Sunflower seeds (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 325°F.

2. Line a loaf pan with foil or a thin layer of oil to prevent sticking.

3. In a medium pot, combine lentils and 1 1/2 cups water. Cover pot and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until lentils are cooked. Drain any remaining water and set aside.

4. In a small bowl, mix the flaxseed meal with 9 tablespoons of water and stir to remove lumps. Set aside.

5. In a large sauté pan, heat olive oil. Stir in garlic, onion, red pepper, carrot, celery, mushrooms, and sun-dried tomatoes. Sauté for about 2 minutes. Stir in cumin, oregano, and cayenne and cook another 3-5 minutes, or until vegetables are softened. Turn off heat. 

6. Stir in lentils, chickpea flour, flaxseeds, walnuts, and vegan cheddar shreds. Stir in flaxseed eggs.

7. Transfer to a loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool for a few minutes in the pan. Then turn out onto a baking rack to continue cooling.
