vegetarian loaf

Here is a loaf I gathered somewhere from searching on the internet…it is very easy to make and I got great reviews even from people who are not vegetarian


Makes one loaf (about 12 slices)

1 cup cooked brown rice
2 cups bread crumbs (grain bread or whole wheat bread)
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 celery stalks, finely chopped
1 carrot, finely chopped
1 pound firm tofu
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce (or regular soy sauce)
2 teaspoons stone-ground or Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
barbecue sauce or ketchup for serving

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a large bowl, combine the brown rice, bread crumbs, walnuts, onion, celery, and carrot.
Puree the tofu in a food processor or mash by hand until very smooth.
Add to the rice mixture along with the barbecue sauce, soy sauce, mustard, and black pepper.
Stir with a large spoon or knead mixture by hand until it is well mixed and holds together, about 1 minute.
Transfer to an oil-sprayed 5- x 9-inch loaf pan or other baking dish and distribute evenly using a spoon, spatula, or your hand.
Top with barbecue sauce or ketchup.

Bake 60 minutes.
Let stand 10 minutes before serving :smiley: :slight_smile: very tasty
