Vegan MoFo - Jeni's Lentil and Mushroom Loaf with Savory Potato Filling

UPDATE: I blogged about this beauty again recently!

Did somebody slip a little catnip in my drink? I've had ants in my pants for a few days and I can't sit still for more than a couple of minutes. What the fork?! I've upped my Omega 3 intake significantly recently (thank you Mr. Flax!) It's either that or one of you slipped something in my tea. *stinkeye*

Do you not believe me? Here's what I made for lunch today:

Jeni's Lentil and Mushroom Loaf with Savory Potato Filling

I cooked all that for lunch instead of eating whatever scraps I find in or under the fridge as usual! Isn't it purdy? It's Jeni's Lentil and Mushroom Loaf with Savory Potato Filling, with a side of roasted carrots and parsnips and some greenery. The recipe is for one big loaf, but I only made a couple of small individual loaves for my lunchypoo. The lentil-mushroom part of the loaf is gloriously non-mushy, and the savory, oniony potato filling is the bomb! This loaf will become a regular here at the Wing-It Kitchen. Thank you for sharing the recipe, Jeni! :)

This post seems like a good time to announce my celebration of the upcoming made-up Thankspiggin' holiday! What? Thankspiggin'! The mister and I are going to be celebrating it this coming Sunday and we're going to stuff ourselves silly with tasty Autumn offerings and general yumminess. It's a very unofficial celebration, and you are welcome to join in. Food. We're going to celebrate food. Do we really need a reason?

  1. I am so in the mood for an old time veggie loaf, and this one sounds perfect. The potato filling makes it special.

  13. holy cow! you are a lunch victor. That loaf looks really, really good. It has my thanksgiving sensors going off. I am looking for something a little different this year. Must be soy free. I will go investigate.

  17. OK that looks REAAALLLLLY good. I'm not a fudge gal, (though I do like a good chocolate cake), but the savory stuff gets me drollin' big time. I wanna make that when nobody else is around so I can eat it ALL MYSELF!! Mwahahaha!

  18. Wow, I made a lentil loaf recently that was pretty good but the potatoes take this to a whooollle nother tasty level.

  19. It does look so purdy! It's so difficult to fine ones that aren't too moist inside. . . wishing I had a good sub for the mushrooms so I could make this!

  20. Anon - Sorry I am such a slowpoke! I was winging it with the baking time, but I'm pretty sure it was 25-30 minutes. Tiny little loaves! :)

  21. River, that is so gorgeous! Looks delicious!

  22. Hi,
    Just stumbled onto your blog from foodgawker. If that's what you make for lunch I can't wait to poke around and see what you make for ... dinner?

    The pics are also amazing. I'm still working on that food photo thing but most of my posts are restaurant reviews. Your pics make me hungry.

    Happy Thankspigging Day!

  23. Soooo, put this in the oven tonight and thought, really? 180 degrees? But that's what the printed recipe said, so that's what I did. Except that 45 minutes later,it was obviously not done. Next time, could you warn us the recipe is coming from a Brit? Then this yumminess would be in my belly right now, instead of still cooking...
