Meatless Loaf

Meatless Loaf

How many people grew up on meatloaf and mash potatoes? This a great tasting loaf, without the meat and without the fat! Make some mashed potatoes and gravy with it and enjoy some comfort food! I tend to find a recipe and tweak it to my liking, or even combine ideas from various recipes. This one was inspired from trying The Happy Herbivore's Hippie Loaf! My loaf has the taste of Thanksgiving to me so I make a "no chick'n" gravy to go with it.

Ingredients (For 4 people)
15 ounce(s) can of black beans rinsed
2 tablespoon(s) low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon(s) ketchup
1 teaspoon(s) thyme
1/2 teaspoon(s) sage
1 medium onion diced
3 gloves of garlic crushed
1/2 red pepper diced
2 stalks of celery, chopped small
1 cup(s) mushroom, chopped corsely
3 tablespoon(s) whole wheat flour
1 cup(s) cooked quinoa

Cooking Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Using a silicon bread pan makes it so you don't need to grease your pan. Or use a silicon mat on a cookie sheet and form an oval meetless loaf.

Mash black beans in a bowl. Mix in the rest of the ingredients until well mixed. Transfer into the bread pan. Spread into pan and pat down with a spatula. Bake 1 hour, or unitl firm and browned. Let it cool for about 15 minutes or until firm. Slice and serve! Topping with a little gravy and serving with mashed potatoes and fresh steamed veggies is my favorite way to serve!

*can be made gluten-free by using rice flour in place of whole-wheat flour.

*in the photo meatless loaf a 1/2 brown rice/ 1/2 quinoa mixture was used.
