“Shoshana, I loved your meatless loaf recipe. I am always looking for new ideas for tofu and this was perfect. The addition of the green lentils and pecans make it a protein packed, healthy and substantial meal. The flavors from the spices are amazing and the texture is great. I always double the recipe so I can freeze one loaf (after slicing) and use for lunches or dinners another day. Thanks for adding another great vegetarian recipe to my repertoire!”
