This lentil loaf recipe is super easy! It is definitely easy enough for a weeknight meal and my kids have really been loving it. We made it the other night with a huge serving of asparagus and it was delicious! Sometimes I make it with mashed potatoes and gravy for a real comfort meal.  We usually finish off one batch of the lentil loaf for dinner, so if you would like some leftovers I would definitely double the recipe.
