My Christmas Dinner Contribution

Here's the recipe for the lentil loaf I took to Christmas dinner. I would cook it for a little longer than it says, because mine didn't really "loaf". It was more of a lentil slop. Tasty lentil slop, but slop none the less.

1 onion
1 clove garlic
2 stalks celery
2 teaspoons sage
3 cups cooked lentils
3 cups cooked wild rice
1/4 cup dry whole wheat breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 eggs (Use egg substitute to make this dish vegan).
2 tablespoons whole-wheat flour
fresh ground black pepper
sea salt

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Chop onion and celery finely, and crush the garlic clove.
3. Spray a frying pan with non-stick spray, and saute the onion, garlic and celery until onion is translucent.
4. Add the sage.
5. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
6. Spray a loaf pan with non-stick spray and fill the loaf pan with the mixture.
7. Press down.
8. Bake 30 minutes covered, 10 minutes uncovered.
9. Let stand for 5-10 minutes before cutting and serving.

I served it with Mushroom Gravy, which is so disgustingly simple to make, and extremely tasty.
