Vegetarian Meat*less loaf

Happy National Meatloaf Day! Did you know, today 10/18 is the day to enjoy meatloaf! 

 

For those who are vegetarian and trying to leave today’s feed by thinking you are not invited, just wait for a second. My meatloaf doesn’t contain meat at all! I’m also on a vegetarian diet, so let’s make yummy meatloaf which contains no meat! 

 

Well, until a few years ago, I would pass the food without meat or even beans, but life has so many unexpectations, now I sincerely appreciate them! Seasoned with spices and soup stock, bean loaf can be more flavorful than meatloaf, and it will be your next obsession with food!

  1. Pour olive oil in a pan and add onion, carrot, jalapeno for about 5 min. Add veg soup stock, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Remove from heat and mix well.
  2. Put black beans in a food processor and process until they are smooth. Combine with the veggies and mix well. Add egg, nutmeg, bread crumbs and mix well.
  3. Preheat an oven to 375°F.
  4. In an oven safe pan, put half portion of beans and veg mixture, then place cheese and cover them with bean mixture to cover the cheese.
  5. Transfer the baking pan into the oven and bake it for about 40 min.
  6. While loaf is being baked, make sauce by combining all ingredients for the sauce. Set aside.
  7. When loaf is ready, remove from the oven and pour the sauce.
  8. Decorate with toppings and enjoy!

Mmm, nutmeg is my new spice to be in my food, but glad I finally take them home! And choosing the right cheese makes your bean loaf more flavorful and inspires another creation, so play with your ingredients, find your favorite food combination to make you smile:)

 

Happy National Meatloaf Day to you!
