Well, OK, technically it's not "meat"loaf, but it's hearty satisfying, savory and in a loaf. Great vegetarian comfort food!
- 16 ounces organic cottage cheese
- 4 organic eggs, slightly beaten
- 1⁄4 cup organic olive oil
- 1 (1 ounce) packet onion soup mix (I use Simply Organic French Onion Soup & Dip mix)
- 1 cup finely chopped organic walnuts
- 2 cups organic cereal flakes (I use Nature's Path Organic Flax Plus Multibran Cereal)
- 1⁄4 cup chopped organic onion
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, combine cottage cheese, eggs, vegetable oil, soup mix, walnuts, cereal and onion.
- Spoon into a muffin tin.
- Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
- Let rest for 5 minutes.
Such a savory and satisfying meal! I could not find the organic onion soup/dip mix, so I looked online and found that the ingredients of it were onion powder, garlic, salt and pepper, so I simply substituted 1 tsp. onion powder, 3/4 tsp. garlic salt and some fresh ground pepper. Also - I was happy to find the cereal at Trader Joes. I made mine in muffin tins and cooked for 20-25 minutes. Right before removing from oven I brushed with some organic ketchup. These are perfect for a packed lunch and heat up in 20 seconds in the microwave.
This recipe was fantastic! I wasn't able to find a few of the organic ingredients specified, but otherwise followed the recipe pretty exactly (I used McCormick French Onion Dip mix and a generic brand of multigrain cereal flakes instead). I added about 1/4 cup of chopped red pepper to the recipe, because I put red pepper in just about everything, and it turned out great. I won't lie, the mixture looks pretty gross when you initially combine everything together, but once it has been baked it looks exactly like meatloaf. And has the texture of meatloaf... and the taste of meatloaf... and the smell of meatloaf... I can't say enough good things about it!
Very delicious!! I couldn't find the soup mix called for in the recipe so I followed *karri's instructions for mixing up my own, and also added some dried onions along with the fresh chopped. I omitted the oil.
This recipe is SO MUCH better than other veggie meatloaf recipes I have made that use faux "meat". The texture, taste and look (after cooking, lol) are spot on! This will definitely be my family's go-to recipe from now on.
