This is my newly adopted recipe. It works okay in its original version but needs more flavour I'd say. Originally all nuts were peanuts, I would use a combination of walnuts, cashews, almonds and peanuts, being sure to grind them in a blender/food processor first so that the loaf stays together well. I added some spices, you may want to add even more though. I think mushroom gravy would be good on this, haven't tried it yet. It is better the next day because the flavours blend.
- 1 cup brown rice, cooked
- 1 egg
- 1⁄4 cup onion, finely chopped (or more)
- 3 garlic cloves, crushed (or more)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- 2 cups nuts, finely ground (cashews, walnuts, almonds, peanuts, etc.)
- 2 cups ricotta cheese or 2 cups cottage cheese
- 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
- fresh ground pepper
- Combine ingredients and bake in loaf at 350 degrees for about 30 - 40 minutes.
- Let stand a few minutes before slicing.
I liked the flavor of this dish, as well as its moist texture. I ground my nuts, cashews and walnuts, very fine, leaving only very small bits of texture. I added an extra egg to help hold the mixture together. My dish was still a bit crumbly, but the taste was yummy. Next time, I think I might try adding some breadcrumbs to help hold the mix together. Also, I thought there could be more kick, so I might try some steak sauce in the mix before cooking. Thank you for posting!
Tastes good but tended to crumble.
