Thanksgiving Loaf
Mercy for Animals


3 cups of cooked lentils

3 cups cooked millet

3 cups steamed brown rice

1 cup whole wheat bread, crumbled (3 slices)

1/2 cup dry oatmeal or cornmeal

1/2 cup almond or cashews, ground fine

1/4 cup sunflower seeds, ground fine (optional)

approximately 3/4 cup of tomato juice

1 Tbs of oil

1 cup chopped onion

1 cup chopped celery

1 cup chopped tomato

1 heaping Tbs of sage

1/2 tsp celery seed, ground

salt to taste, garlic power (optional)


  • Lightly sauté onions in a mixture of water and oil.
  • Add celery and tomatoes. Sauté until slightly softened (the celery, if not over-cooked, gives a nice "crunch" to the loaf).
  • Combine all the ingredients and mix well, add bread crumbs and tomato juice to make stiff. Add water if the mixture seems too dry.
  • Place in lightly oiled loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 1 hour.
