“I am not a vegetarian but I eat some meatless meals and like to have tasty options for vegetarian friends. The lentil/oats combo is a complete protein and an excellent low fat meat replacement for anyone. For vegan friends, I omit the cheese & egg and use lesser amount of tomato sauce. (Prep time does NOT include cooking the lentils.)”
