I've tried making mock meat loaf a few times using the fake ground meat and they always came out too wet. The other day I created a mock meat loaf by pure experimentation and I came across one tasty surprise.
I'm really not sure how much of each ingredient I used, but it filled up an entire loaf pan (that was on the long side - IKEA - got to love them).
Dry Ingredients (put in bowl first) flax seeds flax seed flour spelt rolled oats (quick cooking) soy flour paprika Cajun spice sea salt ground pepper basil red chili flakes wheat germ seasoning salt
Wet Ingredients (blend in food processor) 1 sweet onion 5 mushrooms vegan Worcestershire sauce organic ketchup soy sauce Tamari teriyaki sauce hot pepper walnuts (okay - these are not wet, but they need to be blended) crushed garlic cooked brown rice
Add to Dry Ingredients and stir until coated Crumble one block of firm tofu crumble one block of tempeh (I used the five grain type from Turtle Island Foods)
Add blended ingredients Stir in blended ingredients, if it is too wet add more oats and flour. If it is too dry, add in more ketchup and teriyaki sauce.
Once thoroughly mixed, pour info loaf pan. Squirt Ketchup all over the top. Cook at 375 degrees for an hour. Let cool for 10 minutes and then slice.
Best part: the mock loaf tastes great the next day - even cold. You could make a yummy sandwich.
The Be-Bop Way: To prepare this dish, embrace the ingredients that you love and cook with them. If you don't like certain ingredients, then don't add them. However, keep in mind that you need a good balance of wet and dry to make this loaf otherwise it might turn out too mushy or too tough. If you don't want to add oats, be sure to add lots of breadcrumbs or something that will hold the loaf together.
