Veg Meat[less]loaf

This is delicious whether hot or cold, just like meatloaf with ground beef!
Sometimes I substitute cooked Lentils for the beans. Wonderful texture for mock meatloaf.

Makes 2 or 3 loaves. Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
Combine these ingredients in large cooking pot and bring to a boil stirring often:
3 cups of vegetable broth or vegetable stock
1 3/4 cups water
3 Tbsp of applesauce
1/4 cup (or less if watching sodium) of Braggs Liquid Aminos
1 cup Firm or Silky Tofu
1 cup of pecan meal (ground pecans) or 3/4 cup pecan meal and 1/4 cup ground cashews
(Walnuts will add to meat texture)
2 cans of Pinto Beans (Mashed in Blender) or cooked Lentils
2 Tbsp onion powder (or minced onions)
1/3 cup of favorite Salsa Sauce or Tomato Paste
1/4 tsp each of: Ginger, Chives, Sage, Black Pepper
1 tsp Garlic Powder or crushed fresh garlic

Immediately after the mixture begins to boil, turn heat to medium or low and simmer while
slowly adding approximately 4 cups uncooked whole quick oats. Simmer about 10 minutes stirring continually to mix well.

The finished mixture need to be thick but moist like ground beef. If too thick, add more water.
If too moist, add more oats or bread crumbs. Spoon into loaf pans.
Spread your favorite tomato sauce or Catsup on top.
Bake for 45 minutes to an hour checking for doneness.

Sounds delicious, Carol. I would like this with mashed potatoes and green peas or beans.
