This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeVegan


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small zucchini, finely diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, finely diced
  • 5 cloves garlic, smashed to a paste with coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 flax egg, lightly beaten (1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds, plus 3 tablespoons water)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 cup dry lentils
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup vegan mozzarella
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar


  1. Add lentils, onion, garlic and broth to a stock pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan over high heat. Add the zucchini, bell peppers, garlic paste, and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper and cook until the vegetables are almost soft, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. Whisk the flax egg and fresh herbs in a large bowl. Add the lentils, breadcrumb, vegan cheese, 1/2 cup ketchup, 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, and the cooled vegetables; mix until just combined.
  4. Gently press the mixture into a 9×5-inch loaf pan. Whisk the remaining 1/4 cup ketchup, 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes in a small bowl; brush the mixture over the entire loaf. Bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
