Hi,
I found this great lentil loaf recipe from foodnetwork.  I'd like to make a compliant
version, so I am wondering if maybe adzukis would work.  Any suggestions are welcome!  Here's the link to the original recipe
http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,1977,FOOD_9936_33522,00.html
It really sounds good to me, for a change of pace, a nice veggie meal.....

Here's a great website that gives descriptions and substitutes for a lot of foods: CLICK.

Since lentils are a subcategory of legumes, which also include peas, perhaps one of the pea family would work? Or probably any compliant bean.

I used to use lentils quite a bit. While split peas will cook about the same, the flavor and so on doesn't quite work for me.  Split fava's (not the whole bean) will also cook about the same, they also have a strong flavor that works somewhat better. For a true lentil-type dish I give up on the texture and go for black-eyed pea or adzuki as being a reasonable flavor compromise. Just my opinion. I miss the way lentils break down and make a nice thick soup!

For the link I posted above, click on Legumes, then Lentils, to take you to the Lentil page. I posted the 'Home' link because I wanted to show how many other great foods it lists.

Drea, I bet the link you gave may have the difference of using arrowroot as opposed to other non corn thickeners?
have you stumbled upon an explanation we might be able to use in the recipe editing?

That is good site, thanks!  It mentioned dal, split peas, or black eyed peas, and of those, the last is beneficial, so I may try them.  Thanks again, yes I miss lentil soup myself, but I always had intestinal troubles from it, so it proves
that they aren't good for this O....

OK I tried the lentil soup recipe with adzukis. It tasted like adzukis. They have a distinct flavor, so I had to add more curry powder to taste the curry. It was a wonderful bean soup! we had it for dinner with a bit of goat cheese and a salad.
