Tofu Walnut Oat Loaf

By Siri Ved Kaur

Yield: 1 loaf

This high protein main dish is purely vegan and super delicious.

20 ounces firm tofu (1½ cartons)

1/4 cup ketchup

1/4 cup tamari soy sauce

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1/2 cup chopped parsley

1/4 teaspoon turmeric

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

3/4 cup chopped onion (in ¼" dice)

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

3/4 cup rolled oats

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes

1/3 cup chopped or ground walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drain tofu. Put in a medium mixing bowl and mash with a fork, masher, or hands. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Lightly oil sides and bottom of a loaf pan. Press tofu mixture into the pan and smooth top surface with hands. Place in a hot oven and bake 1 hour.

Serve with Mushroom Gravy. Refrigerated leftovers slice up great for sandwiches or burgers too.
