Lentil Loaf Print
2 cups lentils, rinsed
6 cups water
2 medium onions, chopped
5 cloves garlic, crushed
1 hot pepper, chopped
4 Tbsp coriander leaves, finely chopped
1 cup bread crumbs
1 small can (5.5oz) tomato paste
4 Tbsp butter
3 eggs
1 tsp salt
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp cumin
2 Tbsp oil

Place lentils and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over medium heat for 40 minutes or until lentils are soft but still whole, adding more water if necessary. Drain, then place in a food processor. Process until lentils turn to paste, remove and place in a mixing bowl. In the same food processor, add remaining ingredients, except oil and process for 2 minutes.
Transfer to mixing bowl, then thoroughly mix with lentils. Form into a loaf, then place in a greased bread pan. Sprinkle with the oil, then cover with aluminum foil.
Bake in a 350°F preheated oven for 35 minutes then remove the aluminium foil. Bake uncovered for a further 10 minutes. Best served hot.
Serves 8 to 10.
