Lentil Loaf

1 cup lentils cooked
1 tomato, diced
1 tablespoon grated parmesan (fresh is best)
1/2 cup milk
1 md. onion, peeled and sliced
1 tablespon corn or peanut oil
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Saute onion and tomato in oil until onion is golden and tomato is soft. In a bowl mash up the cooked lentils a little. Add onion & tomato; mix in garlic powder, salt, milk, cheese, and 1 cup of the bread crumbs. Preheat oven to 350. Place mixture into oiled loaf pan, sprinkle remaining crumbs on top and bake for 1/2 hour or until done.

For variation, add a tbs. of ketchup. Just about anything can be added (celery, bell pepper...) Try beating one egg and mix it in to make the loaf stick together better.
