Nutty Harvest Loaf

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by mailbelle

This is a savory meat-less loaf. It has an interesting mix of ingredients (potatoes, peanuts, mushrooms, cilantro, sun-dried tomatoes, plus more) and an interesting sauce (sour cream, tomato paste, honey, cilantro). Haven't tried it yet but thought it might be a good meatless meal - sounds filling.

Takes a little time, but the results are well worth it!! I substituted cremini mushrooms for extra earthiness. This dish was excellent, especially for a bunch of vegetarians!! Thank you!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grease a 1-lb loaf pan. Bring a pan of lightly salted water to a boil and cook the potatoes for 10 minutes, until cooked through. Drain well, mash, and set aside.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet. Add the onion and garlic and fry gently for 2-3 minutes, until soft.
  3. Finely chop the nuts or process them in a food processor for 30 seconds with the breadcrumbs.
  4. Mix the chopped nuts and breadcrumbs into the potatoes with the egg, cilantro, and stock. Stir in the onion and garlic and mix well.
  5. Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter in the skillet, add the sliced mushrooms, and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Press half of the potato mixture into the base of the loaf pan. Spoon the mushrooms on top and sprinkle with the sun-dried tomatoes. Spoon the remaining potato mixture on top and smooth the surface. Cover with foil and bake in a preheated oven at 350° for 1 hour, or until firm to the touch.
  7. Meanwhile, mix the sauce ingredients together.
  8. Turn out the loaf, cut into slices, and serve with the sauce.
