Mushroom Walnut Loaf(Vegetarian Meatloaf) Copycat from the Spot

"I was a vegetarian about 10 years ago and I was always trying to find good creative vegetarian dishes. My husband took me to this vegetarian restaurant called The Spot in Hermosa Bch., CA. The food there was AWESOME! They had a cookbook and I bought it! This is one of the recipes in it. I made it years ago and it was FAB! Serve this with the Mushroom Walnut Gravy that I will post next. You don't have to be vegertarian to enjoy this dish! Actually I prefer this over regular meatloaf. =)"

    There is no salt in the ingredients list. I'll bet that's what made the difference between those who loved it and those who felt it didn't have enough flavor! Just add some salt to taste. No I haven't made it but I'm about to and I can tell how good it would be with "just enough" salt.

    Added salt and a little pepper

    I was trolling the internet for this type of recipe because my girlfriend took me to The Spot a couple weeks ago, and she ordered it. It was amazing. Thanks for posting this bad boy is going in my oven tomm!.

    I thought this was fairly easy, but I made some adjustments. I used quinoa, instead of brown rice, and in the future I'd crush the walnuts to almost a powder before adding. The crunchy from the walnuts gave the loaf an original texture mixed with the softer ingredients, and I prefer to have a uniform texture. It also needs some extra seasoning for added flavor. I'd make this again, but use the crushed fine walnuts and extra seasoning. Thank you for posting.

    I was a bit disappointed in this recipe. The flavor was lacking, despite the mushroom walnut gravy. This recipe makes quite a bit and is easy to throw together. The only change I made was using braggs amino instead of tamari. We generally enjoy vegetarian loafs but don't think we'll make this one again. Looks like we're the odd ones out on this recipe though as many seem to really enjoy it. Thanks for posting. It's great to see a variety of veggie recipes on zaar!
