This is originally from Cooking Light magazine. This is one of my husband's favourites, and he's not even vegetarian. I found another version of this recipe that suggested using uncooked, grated potato instead of the cooked potato. That's a time-saving method probably worth a try, because there is quite a lot of prep required for this recipe.
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1⁄2 cup chopped celery
- 1⁄2 cup diced green bell pepper
- 1⁄2 cup diced red bell pepper
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
- 1⁄2 cup barbecue sauce, divided
- 2 cups mashed cooked peeled baking potatoes (about 1 pound uncooked potatoes)
- 1 cup oats
- 1⁄4 cup minced fresh cilantro
- 1⁄4 cup ketchup
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 (16 ounce) can kidney beans, drained and mashed
- cooking spray
- 3⁄4 cup shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Saute onion and next 6 ingredients in oil in a large nonstick skillet for 3 minutes.
- Stir in 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, potato, and the next 7 ingredients (potato through beans).
- Spoon the potato mixture into a loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake for 30 minutes.
- Brush 1/4 cup barbecue sauce over loaf, and sprinkle with cheese. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until done.
so smart to use potatoes. lOVE THIS RECIPE
This was yummy! Mine didn't stay together as a loaf very well, but it could be because I didn't let it cool very long before cutting AND I used refrigerated grated potatoes instead of mashed ones. The flavor is very nice, though; DH even shocked me by taking multiple servings. He usually complains when I make veg loaves!!
Excellent! I used the premade mashed potatoes found in the cold food section of the grocery store. Made it pretty easy. 2 out of my 3 kids and my carnivour husband like it, too. Texture was a bit mushy, but the taste was great.
