I was a vegetarian about 10 years ago and I was always trying to find good creative vegetarian dishes. My husband took me to this vegetarian restaurant called The Spot in Hermosa Bch., CA. The food there was AWESOME! They had a cookbook and I bought it! This is one of the recipes in it. I made it years ago and it was FAB! Serve this with the Mushroom Walnut Gravy that I will post next. You don't have to be vegertarian to enjoy this dish! Actually I prefer this over regular meatloaf. =)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large bowl combine all the ingredients and mix well.
- Pour into a 9 x 13 baking pan. Bake for 45 minutes.
- Serve with mushroom walnut gravy.
Super fantastic! This would be a star on anyone's table, vegetarian nor not. I made it with the suggested gravy: Mushroom Walnut Gravy Copycat from the Spot Natural Food Restaur, and they were great together. At the last minute I discovered that I only had three cups of cheddar cheese, so I added a cup of ricotta. I think it made the loaf softer/moister than it should have been, so I don't recommend that for aesthetics. But flavor could not be beat. I'm going to make this next time with just the chedder and I'm putting this in my "good enough for company" cookbook. Thanks for posting!!!
As a 20 year plus vegetarian, I've been a little hesitant to make a "meatloaf" type recipe, but when I saw this one in SoCalCookerGal's cookbook for Veggie Swap I had to try it. And am I ever glad I did! DH came home when it had just come out of the oven, and said, "you'd better take that pic quick, because I don't think I can wait!" He absolutely loved it, and loved the "gravy" that goes with it, Mushroom Walnut Gravy Copycat from the Spot Natural Food Restaur. I did taste it before putting it in the oven, and added one tsp of thyme, as I think it goes so well with mushrooms, and it just seemed to need something. Otherwise, it was made exactly as written. This will be made often in our house - I can't wait to make some mashed potatoes and peas to go with it for dinner tomorrow! Yum!! Thank you so much for posting this recipe! Made for Veggie Swap 15.
I was trolling the internet for this type of recipe because my girlfriend took me to The Spot a couple weeks ago, and she ordered it. It was amazing. Thanks for posting this bad boy is going in my oven tomm!.
