From "International Vegitarian Cusine" - a book I saved from my mom's garage sale. My hubby's only comment? He was worried I had undercooked the meat!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

I thought about this recipe long and hard, that is why it was one of the last I made. I just couldn't get my mind around the "loaf" with no meat in it. But I must say I was very pleasantly surprised how flavorful it was. A very tasty combination of veggies and spices. Will definitely make this again. Thanks Anemone for the interesting recipe :) Made for FALL 2008 PAC.
