To prep: Saute the chopped onion and pepper in a skillet on the stove for a few minutes to soften. Rice the cauliflower in a food processor until you have 3 crumbled cups. Squeeze the crumbles with a towel to release excess water. Cook the lentils according to package and let cool.
In a large food processor combine all the ingredients for the loaf and process until combined (not smooth, just mixed well).
Line a 9x5 loaf pan with parchment paper and press in the loaf mixture into the pan and smooth out the top.
In a small bowl, mix the ketchup and liquid smoke together and then spread it evenly over the top of the pressed loaf.
