Beyond Vegan Meatloaf

Beyond Vegan Meatloaf

Meatloaf is a classic holiday meal and super easy to veganize! Perfect for potlucks, holidays and sharing with family and friends. This recipe is super flavorful and delicious this dish will be a hit!

When you need to feed a lot of mouths a meatloaf is the perfect dish to make. We use Beyond Burgers to make this recipe but you can use your favorite "beefy" crumble. We use fresh herbs which gives it a ton of flavor. You can use dried but you won't get the same aroma.

This recipe requires 1 cup of bread crumbs and to make it gluten free we used Simply Mills Almond Crackers Sea Salt and blended them into bread crumbs. One box of crackers is just enough to make 1 cup of breadcrumbs. Instead of using oats in this recipe we used lentils. You'll need to soak the lentils for about 2 hrs ahead of time so be sure to start early.

This recipe is fairly easy to make but will take some time to bake. This recipe will make about 8-10 servings and takes about 1 hr 20 mins to make so be sure to start early.
