Aha! Finally we’re on the right track. Great lentil loaf and gravy for Thanksgiving this year. Here’s how you do it!

Makes two loaves–another revelation–you need to make extra for sandwiches the next day.

4 cups cooked lentils (you’ll have about a cup or so left over out of a one pound bag)
1 large onion chopped
2 large carrots chopped sort of fine.
2 eggs
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 cup rolled oats
4 cloves garlic
1 tbsp ketchup
salt and pepper to taste
splash of soy on top of each loaf

Saute onion and carrot add garlic. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Smoosh it up a bit. Squish it into two parchment lined loaf pans. I grease them but you probably don’t have to. Splash a line of soy down the middle of the loaf and pop into the oven at 375 for about 45 minutes.

Hmmm. First mistake the guy made—getting a goat to keep the weeds down in his yard. Ha that never works! So instead he goes for playmate and takes the goat to the beach. The goat does pretty well. Sydney and Roppongi–I just don’t see it. They’re not so amenable.
