Vegan "Meat"loaf

There are tons of variations on these vegan "meatloaf" recipes. I came across this recipe and tried it last night. It was so good! A little spongy I guess, not sure if that's because I pureed all the ingredients first or didn't cook it long enough, but still very good. Tastes best served hot with ketchup.

Recipe compliments of Tofu Mom

  • 1 onion, finely diced (or in food processor)
  • 2 T. olive oil, plus additional to oil pan
  • 2 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cups fresh breadcrumbs or cracker crumbs (whiz in food processor) OR 2 1/2 cups corn flakes
  • (optional, but good!) 3/4 cup finely chopped/ground pecans, sunflower seeds, walnuts or cashews
  • 1 cup oatmeal (uncooked)
  • (optional, but good!) 1 cup grated carrot (or beets or celery or potato or more onion or whatever)
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp dried sage (or more fresh)
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary (crushed - more if fresh)
  • 2 cups fresh mushrooms, whizzed until chunky in food processor (2 cups after processing)
  • 3 T. nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1 Tbsp soy or tamari sauce
  • 1/4 t. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup soy/rice/almond milk
  • 3 tbsp flax seeds (OR chick pea flour OR ENER-G Egg replacer)
  • 1 cup silken (or any kind) tofu
I mixed everything in a food processor. Lots of ingredients but still super simple to throw together.
