“I had to make this recipe public for my family to see it, so please, if you experience problems let me know. The original recipe calls for a cup of cooked lentils, but I know that I had more than that. I believe I cooked one cup of raw lentils and it ended making about 3 cups. Also, I used 2 tbsp vegetable oil and next time, I think I will only use about 2/3 can evaporated milk. I also used a 8x8-inch square glass dish, as I didn't think it would fit in a loaf pan. I couldn't imagine this loaf would set up with only one cup of cooked lentils. Easily customizable, too. I think I'll add garlic next time.”
