Dear SOS: Mother’s Market & Kitchen in Costa Mesa serves a wonderful lentil-nut loaf that could almost persuade a meat lover to go vegetarian. I could wing the mashed potatoes and a great mushroom gravy it’s served with but not the recipe for the loaf. Can you help?

Dear Beverly: “Ma,” who says the loaf is a “great alternative to turkey,” was happy to share the recipe. Yes, you’ll have to wing the gravy. It’s sold separately at the market and is not included in the recipe.
