Main Dish-American

Meatless Loafs

Mercy for Animals Thanksgiving Loaf-this makes 2 nice size loafs. It is a little time intensive as you have to cook the rice, lentils and millet before you even start the recipe. It also requires millet which many people may not have at home. But it freezes super well so is great when you want to pull a meal from the freezer. Just put some catsup or BBQ sauce on top to keep tender when cooking.

Hippie Loaf-low cal, can be gluten free or Mock Meatloaf or  Curried Lentil Potato Loaf

Any meatless loaf can be served with plant based brown gravy and vegan mashed potatoes

Faux BBQ on a bun-make a batch of Italian Sausages, slice somewhat thin, coat both sides with BBQ sauce and cook on both sides to sear BBQ onto slices. Serve warm on buns.

Meatless ballsI omitted the oregano, basil, parsley, sage & yeast and use for sandwiches or on homemade bread smothered in Happy Herbivore brown gravy. Quick and hold together well.
