M**t Loaf Substitute

For those who are seeking an acceptable m**t substitute,
this lentil loaf is in the archives
and is one of my favorite things.  Even m**t eaters that I
have given this recipe to, find themselves using it once a

It comes out firm, sticks together, leftovers can be cubed
and used in spaghetti sauce, even makes a great sandwich. 
With no meat, even as a cold snack it is tasty .  If you
try it, I bet you will be sold on it.

If you like sage and garlic, a little extra won't hurt it
and if you are not up for making the tomato sauce, you can
substitute ff barbeque sauce, catsup or whatever your
creativity tells you.
