Yes, I see the irony. But this is one of those recipes that I got from sister and I don't know its proper name or where it came from*. But it looks like a meatloaf but it's vegetarian....
Anyway, Steph from MooBear was challenged to share a recipe using one ingredient from the person who challenged her - which she did here - and then she challenged me. So I chose onions and here is a 'Vegetarian Meatloaf' recipe. It's quick and easy (the way I cook) and delicious (what I hope for when I cook).
75g uncooked macaroni pasta
125g brown lentils
2 cups breadcrumbs
1 onion, grated or finely chopped
1 carrot, grated
2 stalks of celery, chopped
60g pine nuts
¼ cup tomato sauce
¼ cup water
2 eggs, beaten
2 Tbls Worcestershire sauce
I didn't have celery and only a small carrot when I made this one so I added a grated zucchini instead.
1. Cook pasta
2. Heat oven to 180 C
3. Combine dry ingredients, including cooked pasta and mix well
4. Add remaining ingredients and mix well
5. Cook until browning on top (about 20-30 minutes)
Now because I'm terrible at tagging people, I'll leave this up to you. If you'd like to take up the recipe challenge, choose an ingredient from this recipe and post a recipe using that ingredient on your blog. Otherwise, whip yourself up a Vegetarian Meatloaf..... you wont be disappointed!
