Crispy Lentil and Oat loaf with Chia Seeds

 

 

Oh Friday how I have missed you……. just love the buzz in the air on a Friday. Everybody seems to be in a better mood and its slowly edging closer towards Spring here in Australia. I am OVER Winter but DEFINATELY not over winter comfort cooking.

I came up with this crispy lentil and oat loaf with chia seeds the other night and served with some creamy, garlic mash, peas and gravy, I think I found a perfect winter comfort go to.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!

STEP 1 – Gather your ingredients. For this I used green lentils (soaked over night), oats, chia seeds, tomato paste, tin of diced tomato’s, onion, garlic, carrots, mushrooms, veggie stock, garlic salt, salt and pepper. Sauté an onion and about 6 cloves (or more) of garlic in a pan and once fragrant add a few chopped carrots and 6 chopped mushrooms and cook for 10 mins on low heat. Cook the lentils (how many depending on how much you are making) in veggie stock for half an hour.

STEP 2 – Once the lentils are cooked, mash them roughly. Add them to a baking dish and mix with mushrooms, carrots, oats (1 cup), chia seeds (1/2 a cup), diced tomato’s, 5 teaspoons of tomato paste and garlic salt, salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.

STEP 3 – Place into the oven at 220 degrees for approx. 45 minutes until crispy, but moist in the middle. Serve with sides of your choice.
