Ma, Ma, Ma, MEAT LOAF!

I never liked meatloaf as a kid. Who would?! Yuk! But I do enjoy this version I came up with. Feel free to add your own traditional meatloaf spices to make this dish your own!

"Meat Loaf"

1/2 C red lentils
1/2 C quinoa
1/2 C oats
1/2 C amaranth
1/2 C buckwheat
1/2 C millet
1/4 C tamari
ground black pepper
1/4 tsp sage
4 C water


1/2 C organic ketchup
2 TBS maple syrup

Add all of the grains, lentils, tamari, spices, and water into a large pot. Bring to a boil and turn heat down to medium. Allow to simmer, stirring frequently, until water has been absorbed. Mixture should be mushy and thick. Pour into a 9" bread loaf pan and place into a 350 degree oven for one hour. Turn out into a parchment-lined baking sheet. Mix together ketchup and maple syrup. Pour over meat loaf. Place into 350 degree oven for an additional 30 minutes. Should come out crispy on the outside, but will be nice and "loafy" on the inside! Don't forget to serve with a swizzle of ketchup on the slices!

Confession: I don't really like ketchup, but I love it on this! ;)
