Trying this again because WordPress was being a pain in the rice-balls
I just found out about your site/Youtube page today and I totally dig what you’re doing here!
Aloha Angela! Thanks for stopping by
Hi there-I’m new to the world of vegetarian and vegan cooking. I am not a vegetarian myself. My sister has recently had to become vegan due to a medical condition so I’m always trying to find new things that she and my family would all enjoy. I am a little unsure of tofu but you mentioned substituting pureed beans. Is there a certain bean that would taste best in this recipe? If using canned beans do you know about how much will make 2 cups of puree? Thanks so much-this really sounds delicious!
Aloha Megan!What a wonderful sister you are to take time to find new recipes for your family.I’m guessing you’re trying to make the Not Yo’ Mama’s Meatloaf,right? A 15oz.can of beans(drained and rinsed well) will work fine.You can really use any beans you like, but cannelinis,navy beans,and kidney beans will work best for the loaf if you want it to look pretty.Using black beans or a green bean(like edamame) will change the color of the loaf and it will not look as pretty when you serve it.Hope that helps!
Thank you so much Cobi! That really helps. It was a very sudden and unexpected life change for my sister, but little by little we are finding great things to eat! Like I said, my own family is not a vegetarian, but I am always looking for ways to be healthier and I am working on adding more vegetarian meals to the menu plan each week that we all enjoy. The vegan ones are a bonus for my sister when she is around for a visit! I found your recipe watching the vegetarian channel on roku-thanks for sharing it!
What is the basis for all the vegan cheeses?? Is it GMO stuff?
There is a wide variety of vegan cheeses to choose from.Some are soy-based and others are made with nuts or tapioca starch.You can check http://www.nongmoproject.org to see if the brand you’re interested in using is GMO free.Or you can try making your own cheeses…I’ve had some success with the Artisan Vegan Cheese Cookbook
I made your vegan meatloaf recipe tonight and it was AMAZING!
I’ve tried so many vegan/vegetarian meatloaf recipes before but this one is the best!!!
Even my meat-loving partner hit the dish and asked for more.
Aloha Snow!I’m so happy to know it worked out for you.And meat-lovers asking for seconds? Awesome!!!Did you serve it with cauliflower mash?
