I used this recipe to make balls (ping pong size, 25). Grated the onion, added a big clover of garlic, some italian spices and omitted the persil. Yummy!
I made this with 16oz of extra firm "Italian seasoned" tofu and added 1 egg. The breadcrumbs were also "Italian seasoned". I spread a thin layer of 1/2 ketchup 1/2 honey barbecue sauce on top of the loaf BEFORE baking. Served it to my mom and husband, and both agreed it was the best "meat"loaf they had ever eaten. Adding the ketchup/bbq to to top before baking adds a real nice flavor to the loaf, the extra Italian seasoning via the breadcrumbs/tofu really kicks up the flavor, and the egg helps the loaf hold it's shape.
Not bad. Somehow it just tasted mostly like bread to me. If I make it again, I will probably add an egg replacer, since it didn't stick together all that well. My husband seemed to like it. He will like mostly anything if he can smother it in ketchup :) The only complaint he had was that the onions were too big, and that is my fault not the recipe's. Next time I will chop them much smaller. Thanks for posting - the more vegan recipes out there, the better, outstanding or not!
