I just watched the video again, and realized it doesn't say how long to cook the lentil loaf!
(And 43% of calories from fat? That's definitely not in line with a McDougall diet, which I thought Dr. Matt advocates. Thanks for posting that info, desertrich. I too hope Dr. Matt leaves a reply about it here!)
Thanks for the baking time, Chef AJ... what about the amount of lentils? And steamed, or unsteamed?
Do you have any suggestions for replacing half the walnuts with something less high in fat?
Thanks again, Chef AJ! I appreciate your experimenting to make this lower in fat, and look forward to hearing the results. I hope the additional oats will do the trick!
I live in the middle of nowhere, there's no Trader Joe's in my entire state, or most (any?) of the neighboring ones for that matter. No Whole Foods, either. So, no access to the steamed lentils. I've never had to pre-steam lentils for a recipe before. How long would I need to steam them? I can't tell from the video, but assume you use regular brown lentils. If I use the quicker-cooking red ones, would I need to steam them first?
I've gotten to hear Dr. McD speak at WorldFest LA and at his 10-day live-in program (you should be one of his guest chefs sometime!), and agree he's awesome! Dr. Barnard and Dr. Ornish I've only gotten to see on TV and video, but always enjoy them too. Glad you enjoyed the PCRM conference, bet it was really informative!
Thanks again for your help with this recipe!
LOL... I've never seen canned lentils either (salt or no-salt!) Man, I really live in a culinary wasteland! But no matter, I do know how to cook lentils! Since you get them in a 10-oz box, I'm assuming that's the amount to use in this.... or close to it, at least.
Those Celebrity Chef Weekends sound like such a blast!
And I imagine Dr. McD in a tux cut quite a dashing figure! :-)

you can find it here as well:
It's 3 cups of cooked lentils and we now write out the recipes as well. They are all from my book UNPROCESSED. http://www.eatunprocessed.com/
Can you believe that this comment was just delivered to my inbox TODAY? 2 cups of walnuts in 8 ounces. We served this at Thanksgiving last night and got 16 slices out of it so there was 1/2 an ounce of walnuts in each slice which I believe is acceptable to even Jeff Novick. If you only got 12 slices out of it there would be 3/4 of an ounce per slice and if you took a huge slice, 1/8, that would be an ounce which in his recent lecture he said was acceptable. You can leave the nuts out entirely if you like and substitute raw mushrooms.
I would use raw finely chopped mushrooms, uncooked.
