Lentil and Cheddar Cheese Loaf

Ingredients:

6 oz red lentils
12 fl oz water
4 oz cheddar cheese, grated
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
½ tsp cayenne pepper
Dash of lemon juice
1 large egg
3 tbsp cream
Salt and Pepper
1 tsp butter

Method:

Preheat the oven to 375°F and lightly grease a 1 lb loaf tin with 1 tsp of butter.

In a large covered pot, cook the lentils in boiling water for about 10 – 15 minutes. Make sure you check the water level so as not to burn the lentils! If necessary, add a bit of boiling water. The mixture should resemble a heavy puree when it is done. Take the pot off the heat and stir through the cheese, onion, parsley, cayenne pepper and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to your taste.

In a little bowl, beat the large egg and mix in the cream. Pour the mixture over the lentil puree. Then, press the lentil puree into the prepared loaf tin and put it in the oven for about 45 – 50 minutes. The top of the lentil loaf should be golden brown. Let the lentil loaf cool down a bit before taking it out of the loaf tin.

Enjoy this healthy vegetarian meal with a nice tossed salad!
