Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4. Rinse the lentils and drain.


In a large saucepan, cook the lentils according to packet instructions, but in vegetable stock instead of water, until they are soft and mash-able.


Meanwhile, cook the brown rice according to packet instructions.


Drain the lentils thoroughly then mash them while they are still hot, until broken down, but still retaining some texture. Set aside.


In a frying pan, heat the vegetable oil and fry the onions for 3-5 minutes, or until soft. Then add the garlic and fry until fragrant.


6 In a large bowl, combine the onions, garlic and olive oil with the mashed lentils and the rice. Then add the salt and pepper, ketchup, tomato paste, maple syrup, mustard, rosemary, thyme, smoked paprika and nutritional yeast. Mix well and mash a little more, to ensure everything is combined.


Gently press the lentil mixture into a well-greased loaf pan. Bake the loaf for 30 minutes then turn it out onto a baking tray. Cover the loaf with foil and bake it for another 30 minutes.


Once cooked, allow the loaf to cool slightly before slicing and serving. Try serving it with a jacket potato, broccoli and gravy.
