Trick or Treat: Lentil loaf “cake”

This recipe was for my Trick or Treat Dinner.

Lentil loaf “cake”
1/3 cup black beans
1/3 cup chickpeas

Blend in a large bowl:
¼ cup slightly undercooked red lentils
1/3 cup French lentils (cooked)
1/3 cup black beans (cooked)
2 eggs beaten
½ cup cheddar cheese
1 heaping teaspoon cumin
1 heaping teaspoon chili powder
1 splash soy sauce
1 t red miso
pureed black beans/chickpeas

Add bread crumbs until the mixture comes together.

Bake in a greased spring-form pan (35-40 minutes) at 375

Ice with tahini/ horseradish mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, peas and radishes.

Good job, FOODalogue, Emily, Green Me and Jenny for guessing the truth about the cake.

Thanks Helene for the compliment.

Wonderfully fun meal and without the sugar hangover!

I've enviously eyed the meatloaf "cakes" but I don't like meatloaf and refuse to make it. I like the idea of vegetarian loaf instead. Alex can't have lentils but I have an old Vegetarian Times nut loaf recipe I used to make for Thanksgivings that I'll have to try in a "cake" or "cupcakes".

Very clever. Love it. I need to do this for my kids. Maybe they would eat all of their dinner and more specifically all of their vegetables.

That's awesome... Wouldn't have guessed what was in it.
