Instructions
Loaf
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Boil lentils.
  3. In the meantime chop onion and pour into lightly greased pan. Add minced garlic cloves.
  4. Grate carrot and add to the same pan.
  5. While everything’s cooking prepare paprika – chop finely.
  6. If you don’t have oat flour you can simply prepare it by pouring oats to the food processor and blend for about a minute.
  7. Prepare chickpeas . Pour it to the blender and pulse for several times. In the end they should be crushed, but not mashed.
  8. Take a big bowl and add all these following ingredients – cooked onion, garlic and carrot, chopped paprika, boiled and drained lentils, crushed chickpeas, oat and chickpea flour.
  9. Then add nutmeg, spices, salts, chilli sauce and bread crumbs.
  10. Mix well. I prefer to do it with my hands.
  11. Then pour it to the bread loaf mold and squeeze well.
  12. Bake about 30 minutes until nicely brown.
Glaze
  1. In the meantime prepare the glaze. Place all the ingredients into a sauce pan.
  2. Heat it to boil, and mix for a couple of minutes until thicken.
  3. When loaf is done cooking spread the glaze on top of it by using a pastry brush. Let it cook for another 10 min.
