Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup celery diced
  • 1/2 cup onion diced
  • 1/2 cup carrot peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 8 oz cremini mushrooms rinsed and diced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 cup cooked green lentils
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds or walnuts soaked in water at least 1 hour
  • 1 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon poultry spice or use your favorite fresh herbs
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal soaked in 3 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 3-4 tablespoons flour any kind
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup cranberry sauce optional
  • 1 package vegan puff pastry thawed

Instructions

  • Sauté celery, onion, carrot, garlic and mushrooms in a nonstick skillet with a bit of water or oil until soft. Add tomato paste and continue to sauté until vegetables are slightly caramelized and excess liquid has cooked off.
  • Combine vegetable mixture with lentils, soaked seeds, Worcestershire sauce, poultry spice, flax "egg," and nutritional yeast. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Stir in breadcrumbs and flour until a firm but not crumbly dough forms. Dough should stick together and hold its shape when pressed in your palm.
  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a 9x5" loaf pan with parchment and then arrange one sheet of puff pastry on the bottom and up the sides of the pan. (You can also assemble the loaf on a baking tray.)
  • Press the lentil mixture into the loaf pan. Spread on a thin layer of cranberry sauce.
  • Top with the remaining sheet of puff pastry. Trim overhang, or fold it over and tuck along the edge of the lentil loaf. Cut a few slits to vent steam. Brush lightly with aquafaba, soy milk or vegan butter if desired for a glossy finish.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes, until pastry is golden brown and puffed up.
  • Allow to cool at room temp for about 10 minutes before removing from pan, slicing and serving.
