Tofu “Meat-Less” Loaf

16 May

Given the fact that it’s GO GREEN week in our Moksha challenge, I thought I would post some easy meatless recipes for you to try at home this week to assist you in your challenge.

Yes, even vegetarians can have “meatloaf”!!! Although it won’t exactly be the same as your mom’s traditional version, try this one.  It’s not so bad.  I will say, however, you will need to adjust the amount of chili powder and/or cumin you use depending on your taste preferences.  I used a little too much of both first time around and let’s just say I had to try it again.  Second time was much much tastier!!!

Ingredients
1 to 2 packs firm tofu
1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon light Italian dressing (or homemade)
4 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 or 2 tablespoons ground cumin
teaspoon cilantro leaves
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup quick oats  (you can use more or less of this depending on the consistency you need)

Method:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.  In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients.  Mix with your hands. I find that mixing the tofu and eggs first make it easier to mix in the oats later on.  Spray 8×8 baking pan with olive-oil cooking spray to avoid sticking.  Consistency should allow you to roll into ball forms without falling apart.  Bake for approximately 45 minutes.  Cooking times will vary as all ovens are different.

Have a fit and fabulous day.
