Beth's Lentils and Mini Maple Banana Bread

I don’t know who Beth is but the recipe from PETA’s The Compassionate Cook is called Beth’s Lentils. I’ve been making this dish for years. I’ve had the best luck using olive oil, vegetable broth, adding celery, and doubling the amount of thyme and marjoram. (The recipe has a few options). I always make this dish with green lentils. I’ve had lentils on my mind since I saw Bazu’s post about Daiku’s lentils.

And I know I mention this all the time but I’m going to say it again. I used Muir Glen stewed tomatoes because they do not contain high fructose corn syrup.


Here’s another item I made for my Valentine’s Day care packages – Maple Banana Bread from The Everyday Vegan. I’ve blogged about Maple Banana Bread before but this time I decided to make it using my mini loaf pan. I snitched a mini loaf and it was delicious.

Mini Maple Banana Bread

Have a wonderful day everyone! It’s still very cold here and today it’s been snowing for a few hours. At least the temperature is above zero. πŸ˜€

    Your little loaves are so cute, and I love that you use the word ‘snitch’! My family uses that word all the time, and I never hear other people say it. Even my 5 1/2 year old neice says it, if I try to sneak food off her plate “don’t be a snitcher!”

    Love the multiple loaf pan. I’m sure many of us in blogland are sorry we don’t live close enough to be on your Valentine goodie list (lol) — your treats look great.

    Those mini loaves are so cute and the lentils just look delicious! Did you know that I don’t usually see high fructose corn syrup in tomato products? Most of the time I buy generic or the big cans of organic tomatoes and both of those just have tomatoes, water, and salt. Weird, huh? πŸ™‚ Well, I bet Muir Glen taste better. πŸ™‚

    Why is it that mini loaves are so much more appealing that regular old gigantic loaves?

    Cute, cute, cute! I want you to be *my* Valentine πŸ™‚

    Delicious! I think I’d want to go with dessert first- those little loaves are calling my name. Your valentine’s day recipients are really lucky! I love Muir Glen tomatoes as well, they have a really intense flavor.

    I think it’s super nice that you are planning to send out Valentine care packages. I really like the idea of sending out valentines to my friends, like in grade school. it’s nice to think of all the people I love… not just my boyfriend. Nice idea!

    I agree with everyone, the mini loafs are so adorable! Everything is cuter in “mini”.

  • Brilynn February 8, 2007, 12:38 pm

    I love maple and bananas, or maple and just about anything really…

    I love anything in miniature form and your bread looks wonderful! I have really been enjoying lentils this winter.

  • Kati February 8, 2007, 2:15 pm

    That bread looks delicious and what cute little loaves! It’s amazing how a regular loaf of bread suddenly turns so cute when it’s small. I’ll have to make this recipe since I actually own the cookbook and LOVE anything maple. Good looking lentils, too!

    Hi Harmonia, thanks for stopping by. My parents are coming in for the weekend. How about your plans for the weekend?

    the best banana bread ever!!! I was lucky enough to be on her valentine care list πŸ™‚ !!!! Emmy makes vegan desserts the way they were meant to be– you can’t even tell they’re vegan! Yuminess w/out the guilt. πŸ™‚
