Vegetarian / Vegan Meatloaf

Vegetarian / Vegan Meatloaf created by Amanda M.

This is adapted from Vegetarian Times and is just about the best meatloaf ever - vegan, vegetarian or 'carnivorian' ... it's the 'meatloaf' sandwich recipe - http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipes/10244 - I've added nutritional yeast to boost the flavor and add B vitamins. My Domestic Accomplice's daughter made this for Christmas ... it was better than the turkey! You may also add mushrooms and/or red or green bell pepper, chopped and sauteed. I also use lemon pepper rather than regular pepper. And if you're on a stricter low-carb diet, you can substitute half of the rolled oats with flax seed meal.

    I think there is an issue with the textured soy protein granules amount. 10 oz of dried TVP produces A LOT of granules when reconstituted. I had enough to make two 9x5 loaves, which meant the spices were stretched and didn't offer much flavor. I think the amount should be cut in half to 5 oz dried TVP and this recipe will be perfect.

    I added eggs as a binder (will try wheat gluten next time) and used beef broth to reconstitute TVP.

    This was the best vegan meatloaf I have done thus far but there is still that lingering TVP aftertaste I can't seem to get rid of. That being said, the final product was good. The texture was spot on, the look and smell were as well. I have seen a recipe that used raw mushrooms and no TVP and was wondering if that may be an alternate to eliminate that TVP taste. BTW, I reconstituted my TVP in beef broth (not vegan, just trying to eat healthier).

    I made this for my daughter who has just become a vegan. Could have fooled me... The flavoring was great and the texture was spot on. I had enough mix to make two loaves, so I added double mustard, ketchup and soy sauce. I was also out of poultry seasoning, so I substituted sage, rosemary and onion powder. Lastly, my loaf was a bit crumbly when I cut into it. I'm thinking about adding egg substitute the next time to keep it together. Fantastic!

    Take it from a meat eater - this was really good. I am two weeks into a 3 week vegan health cleanse & I was really craving something closer to what I am used to eating and this hit the spot. Very flavorful, the texture was superb, and I found the dish to be very satisfying. My meat eating significant other gave it two enthusiastic thumbs up.
