This is from Venturesome Vegetarian Cooking. It turned out very well, just like meatloaf but better. I made this with red wine since I didn't have any Scotch on hand. The rosemary, nuts, and soy sauce really made the dish, so don't substitute those ingredients! When I make this the next time, I will add different herbs.

We made this recipe for dinner last night and thought it was good. It was especially nice because I had all of the ingredients on hand. While I liked it, there are some other vegetarian loaf recipes we like more. However, this recipe is definitely healthier than the loafs I typically enjoy. I did use scotch in this recipe. I served with parsnip and potato mash. A tasty autumn meal. Thanks!

We love this recipe. Notes: Before adding the oats, get out your stick blender and pulse the mixture a few times for better texture. I use whiskey instead of scotch, since I don't like scotch.
It's a shame that this recipe has been given such a disgusting name--it's far better than the name implies.

Sriraccha sauce (hot chile) is fab on this if you want some heat to it. Ain't nothing wrong with that.

I had this for dinner and it tasted very good. However I was concerned that the recipe did not specify that the beans and lentils should be cooked before using. I think they should be, as the kidney beans did not seem done enough to me. Next time (and there will be a next time), I will cook the beans ahead of time or possibly use canned beans.
