A very healthy alternative to meatballs. I'm always looking for yummy vegan food and I'm especially looking forward to trying this one. Many of my favorite vegan recipes come from the Micheff Sisters, Brenda Walsh, Cinda Sanders and Linda Johnson, on 3ABN. This is one of Brenda's recipes. Suggestions: These walnut balls can be made ahead of time and frozen. Can also use them in other sauces such as spaghetti sauce. Try making them a little smaller and using them for an appetizer. For “crispier” texture, fry them in a little canola oil instead of baking them.
UPDATE: We finally tried this and were not disappointed! Made this with my Quick Vegan Pesto Alfredo Sauce (Recipe #246616) and Onion Herb Foccacia Bread (Recipe #246431)and it tasted terrific! I could see how frying them in a little oil would make them taste better plain, but I couldn't tell that much of a difference with them in the sauce and it's so much healthier having them baked. I'm going to try to make these again this weekend with a vegan gravy and hope it turns out just as good! I've had it now with sweeet and sour sauce and it tasted really nice.
This is a great alternative to meatloaf or burgers. You may need to play with the volume of bread crumb/oat/wheat germ to get desired consistency for forming into burgers. Only thing to remember is this timely to make from dried beans.
It tastes great and I am not vegetarian.
Found this recipe in a Weight Watches Magazine Nov/Dec 2006 edition. They called them pumpkin hash browns but they are more like pumpkin patties. The patty could also be used for a Vegetarian Burger. They recommended Weight Watchers cottage cheese but I think low fat cottage cheese would be alright. Because I don't like eggs, I used 'Egg Like' which is an egg replacer. I skipped the 'garnish step' and serve them with to tomato sauce.
Loosely based on a favorite menu item I order at a local restaurant. Sourdough bread or focaccia can be substituted for the hamburger buns if you wish. The portabellas can also be grilled if you want. Update 01-25-08 Try this for marinating the mushrooms:Recipe #227112
Originally called the Ploughman's Sandwich, I have changed this to a vegetarian sandwich by leaving out 5 oz. corned beef. Feel free to add it if you want to! The original recipe also called for Irish cheddar cheese to be soaked in Guinness beer for 2 hours. Hmmm. This is supposed to be one serving! I'm calling it two servings!

Sloppy Joes are not easy to eat--that's half the fun for kids of all ages. Adults who like spicy food can add hot sauce at the table. Adapted from Cooking Light magazine.
This recipe is delicious! It also is very, very versatile. It's been used for sloppy joes, also combined with rice and used as a filling for stuffed peppers. Put it in a tortilla and top it with salsa and cheese. You can put it in spaghetti sauce and serve it over pasta. It makes a lot, so I can have sloppy joes the first night and use it in a different dish the second night. This recipe freezes well too!
This was our 2004 Thanksgiving dinner. A Moosewood recipe. The results were excellent. Per my cousin Amysauntjo: Husband said "It's a keeper." He took it to the non vegetarian diabetic in the family who hates tofu figuring she would refuse and he could keep it for when he visited. She loved it. He said she didn't even thank him because she was busy eating it. Per Us.. The wife and I both loved it. And she did the same thing to us when we shared it with her. I assumed she wouldn't eat it the wife said all she said was "OHH GOOD I like this." and dove right in.
This is a classic Welsh recipe, often affectionately called a "Poor Man's Sausage" because of the lack of meat. If you cannot buy Caerphilly or Lancashire cheese you could substitute a strong Cheddar cheese. This would make a good meal for vegetarians. The recipe is slightly adapted from Jane Grigson's book English Food.
