I made this tasty "meatloaf" for dinner tonight. It is from the Vegandad.blogspot.com site. DH said, "this is pretty good for being vegan." Next time, I will make more sauce, maybe even double it. I found that I did not have any "excess" sauce to spoon over my loaves. Also, I had a little less than 1/2 cup of brown sugar on hand, which was fine for our tastes, as I don't like things too sweet. I may even cut back to 1/4 cup next time. The recipe did not say to use prepared mustard so I used dried. The cayenne is to taste, but that part keeps disappearing. I grated the onion in my mini food processor as I was tired of using the box grater after the tempeh. I served with mashed potatoes and roasted broccoli.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Oil a 9 x 13 baking pan.
  2. Mix grated tempeh, onion, garlic, flour, and spices in a large bowl.
  3. Add in sauces and oil, and enough water (you may not need any at all) so you are able to mash everything up with your fingers. Knead/mush/mash for a few mins to mix everything well.
  4. Divide dough into 10 pieces and shape into small loaves. Place into oiled pan, and spray lightly with oil. Bake for 15 minutes.
  5. While loaves are baking, bring glaze ingredients to bubbling in a small saucepan. Let thicken a bit. Spoon over baking loaves. Bake loaves for 15 mins more, then scoop excess glaze back over the loaves. Bake for an additional 20-25 mins, or until glaze is thickened and darkened.
