In my vegetarian days (late 1970s to late 1980s) lentils saved my life. When I lived at home Mom refused to cook differently for me so I learned to make lentil loaf. Later, on my own or with Dean I cooked lentil shepherd’s pie, lentil soup, lentil burgers…
I still cook with lentils often.

I’m another lentil fan. I don’t think of red lentils as lentils for some reason (probably because I was introduced to them as dal) so I envisioned the loaf made with brown lentils. That might be good too.
I only used brown lentils until recently — now I have jars of red lentils, green (French) lentils, brown lentils, and maybe another kind.
I just mentioned on my other blog (A Separate Life) that I’m looking for lentil recipes, as I want to stop eating quite so much meat. So thank you! Other than soup with split peas, or a tagine with chickpeas, I don’t really cook with lentils or pulses at all.
I really love lentils. You’d think I’d cook with them more.
