2 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
3 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
3/4 cup sliced Yellow onion

  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 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 the amount of water stated in the ingredients section to make the flax egg. Stir to remove lumps and 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.
  6. Stir in cumin, oregano, and cayenne and cook another 3-5 minutes, or until vegetables are softened. Turn off heat. 
  7. Stir in the cooked lentils, chickpea flour, flaxseeds, walnuts, and vegan cheddar shreds. Stir in flaxseed eggs.
  8. Press the mixture into a loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes or until lightly browned. 
  9. Let cool for a few minutes in the pan. Then turn out onto a baking rack to continue cooling before serving.
