Neat Loaf

Think you have to give up meatloaf if you become a vegan? Nope! This recipe is an amazing substitute for that classic comfort food. Guaranteed to please even the biggest meatloaf lover! A

We got this recipe from the book: Main Street Vegan by Victoria Moran

Neat Loaf:

2 cups cooked brown rice
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1/2 medium bell pepper finely chopped
2 medium carrots shredded or finely chopped
1 cup wheat germ
1 cup quick cooking rolled oats
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp marjoram
1/2 tsp dried sage
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp stone ground or Dijon style mustard
barbecue sauce or ketchup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine all the ingredients except the barbecue sauce or ketchup {we use ketchup}
Mix for two minutes with a large spoon, this will help bind it together
Pat into an oil sprayed 5 x 9 inch loaf pan and top with barbecue sauce or ketchup
Bake for 60 minutes {we baked it more like 90 minutes}
Let stand for 10 minutes before serving

Makes great sandwiches too the next day!
