"But food is not just a conversational common denominator like the weather is in Britain. The subject, sometimes passionately debated, represents a personal philosophy of life." --Kinta Beevor

Vegan Meatloaf with steamed vegetables

  Here's a vegan meatloaf that has the texture and zesty flavors that rival any meatloaf I've enjoyed in the past.  I served it with steamed cauliflower, steamed yellow squash, and a mix of red peppers, onions, and mushrooms.

Vegan Meat Loaf
1 10 ounce package of Tofu Crumbles
1 cup TVP (texturized vegetable protein)
1 or 2 chopped garlic cloves
3 tbsp. mustard
4 tbsp. Pomi strained tomatoes
4 tbsp. nutritional yeast
1 cup cooked thin sliced onion
1/2 cup cooked red peppers (diced)
1/2 cup cooked mushrooms (sliced)
2 cups black beans (hand mash or  use food processor)
3 tbsp. flax meal 
2 tbsp. tomato paste
1 tbsp. dried oregano
1 tbsp. dried basil
2 tbsp. no-salt seasoning
 splash of hot sauce
1 tsp. smoked paprika
3 tbsp. dried parsley flakes
1/2 tsp. salt 
3tbsp. veg broth or water
     With a large fork, mix all the ingredients together. I spread mine evenly and pat it down into a 9" X 12" glass Pyrex pan. 
     Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and allow to rest for about 10 minutes before serving.
