TVP Meatloaf (vegan)

For a slightly richer alternative that uses eggs, try this TVP meatloaf recipe: TVP Meatloaf II.

1/2 C onion
1 T olive oil
1 1/2 C textured vegetable protein granules
1 t Basil
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t Oregano
1/4 C fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 t Salt
1 C bread crumbs
1 1/2 C boiling water
1/4 C tomato sauce

Chop the onion and saute it in the olive oil until soft. Combine with the other ingredients. Press into a non-stick pan and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

    This looks like a great recipe. I’ll go try it.

    turned out very watery even after letting it cook an extra 20 min. All in all it was tasty, but I’d cut down on the liquid amount by about a half cup.

    Positively and absolutely horrible! It was utter mush! I cooked for a few of people and everyone agreed! It’s terrible and I will NOT…EVER, make this again.

    It’s really gross! I’m so disappointed. I was really hoping I’d found a veggie meatloaf that I liked.

    …On to the next veggie meatloaf recipe. :o( Hoping the next won’t be so disappointing! (Or yucky)

    I made this receipe, but I made a few modifications. Because of the tomato sauce and oil I reduced the liquid. I make TVP with 1 cup TVP to 7/8 cup boiling water. So I reduced the liquid to keep that ratio of TVP to liquid. It turned out great with texture similar to meat loaf.
    I added pine nuts and additional spices and garlic to enrich the flavor.

    My changes to this are: 1 onion, finely chopped, one egg, mixed nicely, dried parsley, 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce (no anchovies), 1/2 chopped green bell pepper. Cover loaf with swirl ketchup and top with fresh onion ring slices. Bake 350 for 1/2 hr. For vegans, eliminate egg and just use regular Worcestershire sauce. I use Italian flavour bread crumbs. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.

    You know, beef or veggie broth can be used instead of the boiling water. It is better. Thanks.
