like old fashioned moms meatloaf, but minus the meat. This is meatloaf made out of lentils in a traditional loaf. This loaf is easy to prep and you won’t be disappointed with the flavor and texture.
Not only do lentils help lower cholesterol, they benefit in managing blood-sugar disorders since their high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising rapidly after a meal. But this is far from all lentils have to offer. Lentils also provide excellent amounts of seven important minerals, B-vitamins, and protein—all with virtually no fat. You can serve this with whatever vegetable you love, but don’t forget some roasted potatoes of your choice.
