READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Moor Driver

A great vegetarian alternative to meatloaf. Works great as leftovers as well. If you don't have a food processor, you can mash up the beans with a potato masher.

from the cookbook "Vegetarian: the best ever recipe collection" by Linda Fraser. This recipe is fantastic!!! It has been a fav of mine for a number of years. I made it for dinner tonight and meat-eater hubby said it tasted just like regular meatloaf. picky eater son said "YUM!" and gobbled it up.
