Another vegan meatloaf. Originally, I threw in some spices, but let’s try it without. If you must try the spices, I think I used allspice, maybe about 1/4-1/2 a teaspoon, or 1/4 a teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/4 of allspice, with some other spices I can’t recommend anymore (neither can I recommend allspice nor cinnamon, but if you want to try it, you’re free to get as creative as you’d like to within your limits).
This makes 1 to 1 1/2 loaf.
- 3 cup pecan or walnut meal (pecans/walnuts ground into a meal)
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
- 1 cup oats
- about 1 1/2-2 cups water
- 1/2 Tbsp garlic powder
- 1/2 Tbsp onion powder
- 1 Tbsp parsley
- 1 Tbsp basil
- 1 Tbsp salt
- 1 onion, peeled and sliced
- 1/2 bell pepper, diced
- 1/4 cup oil
- honey or maple syrup (optional)
- bbq sauce or ketchup
- oil or nonstick cooking spray for greasing pan
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Sift together all dry ingredients except oats.
- Thoroughly blend together oats and water.
- Pour oat and water blend into dry mixture.
- Add oil.
- Mix well into a thick batter. Should be very thick, like biscuit dough, NOT like pancake batter.
- Grease standard-sized loaf pan (You may need another pan about half the size, or you can possibly put more in the first loaf pan. If you use a second one, just pack the loaf so that it only fills half of the pan (to the left or right side). The loaf batter should be thick enough to pack into a shape, if needed.).
- Fill the loaf pan half to 3/4 of the way full (vertically).
- Smooth with a spoon, knife, spreader, or rubber spatula (recommended).
- If using, drizzle the honey/maple syrup in a zig-zag pattern from the left side to the right of the loaf or from the right side to the left of the loaf.
- Spread bbq sauce over the loaf.
- Cover with foil. Make a slit or two in the middle to let the steam vent.
- Bake for 30 minutes covered.
- Uncover. Bake for another 10-15 minutes.
- Let cool about 10 minutes. Loaf should hold together well when finished.
Also delicious in sandwiches.
