1 cup diced onion

1 cup chopped cilantro

½ cup chopped jalapeno without the seeds unless you like it spicy

2 tbsp ground flaxseed

    Wondering how many “cups” are in your “can”? I cook my own lentils, thank you!

      I use a 15oz can but don’t know how many cups that is. The can says 3.5 – 1/2 cup servings, but I am not sure if that includes the liquid in the can.

    I just made this tonight with jarred jalapeños (lazy), & ketchup instead of BBQ sauce. It’s so yummy!! I’ve been vegan for 3 years and have made a million kinds of lentil loaves, but this one is much easier & just as tasty as other more labor intensive ones! Thank you!!
