Vegan Lentil Walnut Loaf with Sweet Potato

112 comments

Despite what you may think, living with a food blogger is not always peachy! Aside from the new dishes, plentiful leftovers, and a freezer packed with goodies, there are dishes, messes, computer troubles, steep grocery bills, minor breakdowns, and taste-testings gone wrong.

Despite all of this, Eric’s biggest complaint is that I rarely make the same dish more than once! In the name of new blog content, I try to make new recipes so I have fun things to post for you guys, but in the process I often leave fabulous recipes in the dust.

So last weekend, we came up with a few favourite recipes from our past and I said I would make a couple off this list each week to bring back some classics!

Currently on our favourites list:

 

The Ultimate Vegan Lentil Walnut Loaf, which I adapted from the Clean Food Cookbook (original cookbook recipe is here), is first on the list. Last night, I set out to make the loaf once again, but I decided to add sweet potato for a fun twist.

How can you go wrong with sweet potato? You just can’t.

IMG_3962

Ok, maybe there was that one time.

IMG_3992

For brevity’s sake, I won’t type out the entire recipe again, but I will tell you what changes I made for this version:

Modifications to Ultimate Vegan Lentil Walnut Loaf:

  • 3/4 cup grated sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup raisins (instead of 1/4 cup)
  • Increased toasted walnuts to 1 cup (amped up the crunchy texture!)
  • Omitted carrot and apple
  • Added 1/2 tsp Italian seasonings
  • Increased thyme to 1.5 tsp
  • Added pinch of garlic powder

 

First version is here.

We usually have applesauce and sautéed greens on the side, but I was out of both, so I made a salad.

IMG_3964

I sprinkled romaine with Energizing Protein Power Salad, added some chopped tomato, and homemade Better than bottled balsamic vinaigrette. It was delish!

IMG_3999

So which version did I like better?

The first version because it held together better. Taste wise? They both taste awesome. This version had a more crunchy and chewy texture thanks to the increased raisins and walnuts.

I’m thinking about all kinds of mix-ins you could use for this recipe. I’m sure it would work with many ingredients and it would probably be amazing with fresh herbs too.

For breakfast, I started with a super green juice blend.

IMG_3937

Cleansing Green Juice

  • 1 apple
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 cup Dandelion (blended in after)

 

Instead of juicing the Dandelion, I blended it in my Vita-mix with the juice. My juicer (Breville Fountain Juice Plus) does not juice greens well and I find it to be a waste because not much juice comes out. I prefer to juice ‘worth while’ veggies only and then blend in any greens afterwards. I feel like I get more bang for my buck this way. The clean up for 2 machines is not great though so I don’t do this often!

Not long after, breakfast was calling my name from the fridge! Don’t you love it when the breakfast fairy prepares breakfast for you?

Yum.

Updates:

1) In case you missed it on the weekend, I have a brand new Search bar installed on the right side bar of the blog. If you have tried searching the blog before you probably were frustrated that it didn’t work well. This new one is amazing and I hope that you will be able to find things much quicker! I’m very impressed with it so far. Go check it out and give it a try!

2) My Recipes page is up to date from the past week.

3) Check out this post for a homemade & all-natural drain cleaner (only two ingredients!) that I’m loving lately.

Happy Birthday to my Best Bud Allison! She is a new mommy, a new dentist, and one of the most awesome girls I know. XO

This sounds delish Ange! I loved your lentil walnut loaf at Thanksgiving and I’m pretty sure the sweet potato version would be the bomb!! I also have a habit of always making new recipes, rather than going back to my tried-and-tested, already-posted ones. I think I might revisit a few this weekend. :)

I use vinegar and baking soda with all of my cleaning. I usually make a solution of 1/2 vinegar, 1/2 water in a spray bottle. I use that everywhere – my countertops, mirrors, appliances, windows, etc. For my floors I use a big bucket of water with some vinegar. For stubborn spots on my counters, and the soap film in my shower, I use a bunch of baking soda, then spray the vinegar mixture (I love watching and hearing it bubble), use some elbow grease, and clean it comes. I actually think this stuff works so much better than any cleaner you can get in the store, my mirrors really sparkle. It’s probably because it doesn’t leave behind a residue. And vinegar is a natural anti-bacterial. Unfortunately, my bathroom drains get that nasty biofilm, so I have to unscrew the elbow of the drain under my sink and clean that stuff out with a papertowel. I read somewhere where enzymatic cleaners will help prevent that stuff, so I’m going to try it out. Yuck!

Reply

37 Angela (Oh She Glows) April 5, 2011

I use it for so many things too! I have a bottle with vinegar and water for light cleaning. I also use vinegar and water on hardwood. My goal is to switch over to 80-90% homemade cleaners this year, but I need to buy a couple things like Borax to test a couple recipes. :)

Reply

38 AGS @ West With Flight April 5, 2011

Borax is great — just be sure to purchase it in bulk containers. Also, my husband (who is OCD about cleaning) actually called the manufacturer of the tub we installed in our condo to find out how best to clean it. The answer: baking soda and water. Anything else is actually “too harsh.”

Reply

39 Gail April 6, 2011

Isn’t that interesting? I always love it when it’s something simple (and cheap) like that. If you have granite counters, you’re not supposed to use vinegar and water. I don’t know why. I think the only thing I buy at the store anymore is detergent – for my clothes and dishes. But I buy Ecover from the natural foods store. So, hopefully it’s less impacting to the environment. The enzyme cleaner I got was from the natural foods store too. I still read the label, though :0)

I love all things veggie loaf. I remember as a kid when my Mom would make us eat her walnut loaf, my brother and I would make gagging sounds… not bc it tasted nasty, but bc it looked like a huge mound of brown … stuff. Now though, I love them. I wonder why your other version held together better ? I once made Giada de Laurentes’ recipe from foodnetwork for my family and everyone loved that one too, but it does NOT hold together.

Reply

43 Angela (Oh She Glows) April 5, 2011

Hi you have buy dandelion in Canada? I mean I live in Europe and we have dandelion everywhere on sidewalk it grows like weed so we have green juice and green smoothie with dandelion for free also with neetle:-)I am glad I am not myself who needs second breakfast after greenjuice. I drink 32 ounces or more and I am hungry within an hour. I am very skinny so I do not want to take any fast till noon only with green juice or smoothie.

When I saw lentil loaf, my heart skipped a beat b/c I remember that was the recipe that took you like 6 tries to get it right…and you went back for more…and tweaked it, again :) I cannot follow a recipe twice to save my life.

And I almost never make the same thing….why bother. It’s used content. lol

It’s so ironic though that you posted this b/c I actually re-made a dessert AND re-photographed it over the weekend. 99% of the time I never do that. In my blogging career there are probably only a half dozen recipes I’ve ever remade AND rephotographed. It just is so time consuming!

Oh and new dishes…I spent $30 bucks on dishes last week and posted about them…and got accused of having a shopping addiction. So I laughed when I read your opening line…yes, bloggers have new dishes. It’s our “job” :)

I’ve been reading your blog for quite a while now, but never commented before.

That orange thing you added to your loaf? That would be a yam, m’dear. A sweet potato resembles a large, oblong, yellow potato. Maybe the terminology is different for our areas, but it’s one of my pet peeves; so many people can’t tell them apart! :-)

Keep the delicious recipes coming, Angela! I’m so glad to have run in to this blog.

80 Angela (Oh She Glows) April 5, 2011

Really? That’s odd! Why would the grocery store label it as a sweet potato?

Reply

81 Andrea April 5, 2011

Yams, Sweet Potatoes…..on going debate. In Canada the stores generally label the orange root vegetable Yams and the yellow, Sweet Potatoes. However Sometimes they both ring up at the till under Sweet Potato. In the US , the orange Yams are called Sweet Potatoes and the yellow ones, yams. I would have to agree that Sweet Potato would be a great name for the orange ones as they are very sweet. I have always called them Yams. Either way they are booth some of my favorite foods.

Thanks for this site, it has opened up a whole new world of healthy thinking and eating!! Your Date squares were a favorite even to my picky husband who asked last night at dinner, is this a real mac n cheese or you “special” one. I have done so much cooking and baking from your site that I have blown up my food processor. Shopping for a new one but don’t know which to pick. I want to know how many loads of dishes get done in your house? I do up to 5 on busy cooking days…………..and there is only 3 of us. Andrea

Hey Ange I don’t know if it’s of any ‘concern’ to you so if it’s not, go ahead and forget what I said ;). it is very beneficial to juice greens since the bio availability goes way up by doing so. much more so than with blending (although this also helps of course). I have a centrifugal juicer as well, one thats not really meant for juicing greens, however if you bundle your greens up tightly, put them in with the motor off, and put something heavy on top of it, like an apple, it works really well! you just need to make sure your blades can catch the greens!

This vegan meatloaf is one of my favorite recipes of yours too! And with sweet potato (one of my favorite foods!) it must be even better! Can’t wait to try this recipe out again!

Great list of ‘favorites’ – I already had four of them on my list of new recipes to try! :-)

Hi Angela

I know you work from home, but I was wondering if you could do an entry about how you maintain a blogging/life balance. I’ve taken a look around, and can’t find a similar entry

Thanks!

I made the original version of your lentil loaf last night (along with the barley risotto) and thought they both turned out REALLY well. My meat-eating boyfriend thought the loaf was really good and said he’d put walnuts in the next time he makes meat loaf. Due to how much he liked the vegan version, that might not be anytime soon. ;)
