Deep south homemade vegan meatloaf made with lentils and oats. Super satisfying, savory, meaty, hearty and easy to make. It’s nothing like mom’s…it’s better! Ouch.


  • 3 cups cooked lentils
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 celery stalks chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/2 cup dried parsley
  • 1 tsp. ground sage
  • 1 tsp. marjoram
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. dijon mustard
  • salt to taste
  • More ketchup for topping


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients into mixing bowl and whisk together. Add remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix together well. You don’t want to completely mash the lentils, but you do want a somewhat “mushy” consistency. If the mixture seems a little dry, add water or veggie broth for a little more moisture.
  3. Add a thin layer of ketchup to a nonstick 9×13 baking dish (affiliate link) or loaf pan. Pour the mixture into a baking dish, press down firmly and evenly, add a layer of ketchup on top of meatloaf.
  4. Bake 45-50 mins.
  5. Remove and let sit for 10-15 minutes before serving.
