Meatless Meatloaf and Mushroom gravy with mashed potatoes

Meatless (Meat)loaf 
This is a recipe I found that I have been searching FOREVER for. I had to share because even though I did not name it correctly I love and crave this taste. It is a copy cat recipe from a restaurant I love.
This is not a tried recipe by me.
I wish all of us luck in it's proper execution. LOL
4 eggs
2/3 envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix (the whole packet measures 1/4 cup, so use slightly less or use the whole packet if you like the onion soup mix taste) - for vegetarian version substitute dry soup mix without beef bouillon
2 cups or 16oz. low-fat ricotta cheese
2 cups or 16oz. firm tofu (mashed into small pieces)
1/4 cup vegetable oil of choice
1/3 cup onions
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. basil
1/4 tsp. rosemary (fresh is good)
4 cups (dry measured) Special K (note: this approximately equals 4 oz or 113 grams of the cereal by weight)
1 1/2 tbsp. garlic


1/2 cup ketchup
1/8 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup molasses
1/8 cup to 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (to taste)
Pinch cayenne ground pepper (to taste)


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Sauté onions and garlic.

Beat eggs in a bowl, and then add all other ingredients except the Special K. Mix well and then add the Special K last. Put in pan that is sprayed with cooking oil.

Bake for 1 hour. Pour sauce over loaf after 1 hour, and bake for 10 more minutes.

Mushroom Gravy
This is a Perfect side car for this Meatless Meatloaf. Great served over lumpy mashed potatoes.


• 3/4 Cup white or button mushrooms, chopped
• 2-1/2 Cups vegetable broth
• 1/4 Cup vegan margarine
• 1 Small yellow or white onion, minced
• 1/4 Cup flour
• 2 tbsp Soy sauce
• 1 tbsp Poultry seasoning
• Salt and pepper to taste


• In a skillet, melt the margarine and add onion and mushrooms to it.
• Fry them for 1 to 2 minute on high heat.
• Reduce the heat to medium and combine broth and soy sauce to it.
• Gradually add flour to it, stirring well to combine and prevent the lumps from the forming.
• Bring it to simmer or a low boil, and then decrease the flame.
• Add poultry seasoning, salt and pepper to it, stirring constantly.
• Cook it for about 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently, till gravy thickens.

Serve over hand mashed potatoes…perfect.
Enjoy this knock off... I'll post a picture later.. If I don't attack it or forget.

This little man is my baby in training. He gave me the greatest honor of changing my life and title forever. He made me Mom. He made me important.

It has been a short four years that have blurred past of sword fights, super heroes and laughs.

Johnpaul is a Big Brother ask any one he doesn't take his title lightly.

One of my most favorite of many amazing attributes of Johnpaul is his idea of Honor Love and Family. He is a awesome little boy. I look forward in watching him grow.

This guy was worry from within the whom. At week 15 I started to bleed. We were loosing him. It was that day this sweet one even before breathing air taught me one of my most precious life lessons.. patience.

Before I had little but while pregnant with him I was on strict bed rest for 172 days. I was more than worth it.

My image of him was he was the most Determined person.. boy was I right. He will because of this be anything he wants. Greatness is in his future.

Nathaniel is loving, sweet and considerate. He can melt your worst day with his smile.

This little love. He's my last but in no where my least. He was not planned but was very welcome. He was an Anniversary Gift the best kind ever. Christian doesn't talk yet or walk but I can already tell he's a big thinker.

He is always watching. I can't wait to see how his personality unfolds... but at the same time hope he takes his sweet time. He is my baby, my last and I'd like to keep him sdmall for a bit ;o)
