Yeah, this recipe does have a lot of letter “L’s” in it. Rest assured, they will all stand for “love” once you taste this dish. This has been a staple dinner recipe in my home for quite a while, for a few reasons:
- It’s simple to make.
- It’s inexpensive.
- There are always leftovers to enjoy the next day.
- It’s healthy.
- It’s filling.
The ingredients are most likely things you’ll have around your kitchen anyway. I always check to make sure I have the basic components (canned lentils, jarred roasted red peppers, falafel mix) in the pantry at all times.
It’s really great on those nights when reality hits. Those times you barely got yourself home from work and somehow forgot that you still need food before the evening is through. (It’s also really great on those nights when you plan ahead for it, too.)
Basically, you throw the seven ingredients in a bowl. Form that mixture into a loaf and put it in the oven. Wait a short while and dinner is served! It’s not hard. It’s super easy food for times when life is hard/annoying/too fast.
