My husband and I did not care for this meatloaf. It seem to lack flavor, and it didn't even come close to tasting like a meatloaf.! We ended up topping our slices with Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet 'n Spicy Barbecue Sauce, which was the only thing that gave this meatloaf flavor. We did eat 2 slices, but ended up throwing out the rest. Guess we much prefer our meatloaf made with real beef.
We've made this for years from a recipe from my SDA friend. We prefer Special K (in fact it's called Special K loaf). For the last half hour, cover with ketchup, a delicate sprinkle of brown sugar and vegetarian bacon strips. It's simply fantastic. We serve it with cauliflower "mashed potatoes" and peas and it's a family favorite. Do try - you won't be sorry!
So delicious! Made recipe as directed with some flax seed added, very yum. Next time I will use less onion soup mix, was a bit too salty for me. Another review was dead on when they said that it does not look like much when you put it in oven, but when you take it out, it looks like old fashioned meatloaf! Used my leftovers in wheat pita pocket with spinach, that was even delicious. Will be making this again and again!
Husband & I Vegetarian since 1989. Have made many a loaf/roast. This one is a wonderful find. Easy, fast and unbelievably good. Great consistency, texture and taste. Only changes I made: subbed dried onion for fresh and a packet of dry ranch dressing for dry onion soup mix - what I had in pantry. Baked in convection oven for full 70 minutes. Will reduce 15 minutes next time. Will make this frequently, varying the seasoning and add-ins.
good texture but very bland.
This was the most AMAZING recipe. We have recently started a life style change to eating a plant based diet. My husband is a meat and potato kind of guy so I'm always on the hunt for dense main meal dishes. This fit the bill PERFECTLY!!!!! I didn't change a thing, as I always like to make new recipes as written before I start to play with them. Again....this is one of the best things I've ever tasted!!!
This was really good. I cut recipe in half as there is only me. to which I added a sprinkle of johnny seasoning and a sprinkle of lemon pepper. Its consistancy was good it held together well without crumbling which I had from another recipe
Love it! I absolutely couldn't believe that this made such a yummy "meat" loaf. So, I made it again a week later! Oh, and I sauteed some celery and threw that in, as well as a couple of tomatoes just to add more of a veggie factor. I loved it, my roommates loved it; thank you so much for this!
love it! made it for my vegy sister for familey night and it was devoured by all the meat eaters too! even the picky kids enjoyed it. will be a staple in both households. i love how EASY it is! add a bit more garlic herbs ect to suit our taste.
i do wonder why mine is not even close in color to the pics? not a beutiful carmel, quite pasty and pale.
I wanted to like this so bad but both my husband and I didn't really care for it. We are in the minority on this one!!
