Finally finally I put The Magical Loaf Studio to use! I've known about this handy recipe generator for over a year and I've been meaning to use it. All you do is pick and choose your ingredients, hit 'submit' and out comes a recipe complete with measurements. How cool is that? I liked meatloaf and I had it all the time growing up. Now that I'm vegan, my loaves are meat-free and even more delicious. I usually make my veggie meatloaves with tofu and vegetables and I've never tried one which comprised mostly of beans. Today's loaf has chickpeas, brazil nuts, whole grain bread crumbs, onions, carrots, garlic, celery, ketchup, soy sauce, black pepper and bbq spice blend (mesquite powder, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic powder and other stuff). I also spread a little ketchup on top of the loaf to give it that 1950's touch.
I cut into it about 15 minutes after it came out of the oven. It was moist and very flavorful. If I didn't use bbq type spices in it I would have made a gravy to go with it. I love the versatility of the Loaf Studio and I can't wait to use it again to make an entirely different loaf.
