Black Bean Vegetarian Meat Loaf

Black Bean Vegetarian Meat Loaf

Val's Mom 0

"This was a creation based on trying my first black bean vegetarian burger and deciding I had to learn how to make one, then I decided to go for a vegetarian meatloaf instead! Based on a 4 ounce serving, this recipe could be used to make twelve 4 ounce burgers instead of a meatloaf."

This is phenomenal. I added about 3 TBSPs of BBQ sauce, an extra egg and a half cup of uncooked oatmeal. I made this the night before my dinner party and refridgerated it, which really help to "set" it and bring out the flavors. Because it was initially chilled it was easy to remove from the meatloaf pan and it sliced very well without crumbling. I sliced it all up before reheating and serving. I served this with a traditional brown gravy. All my guests talked about it for weeks afterwards.

Fantastic! I added one can of diced black olives, minced 3 cloves of garlic, and two diced adobo peppers, (we like it spicy) and it was AWESOME! Great recipe, the kids loved it, and it's healthy! Thanks!

Almost an epic fail!!! I didn't have 3 cans of black, so I threw in a can of garbanzo...which didn't like to be mashed...things got messy...but anyway-- I used 2 cans black, one garbanzo, 7oz can green chiles, one egg, sleeve crackers, onion, a little taco and ranch dip, frozen sweet corn, cheese. Put in a dish like brownies, didn't form a loaf. My family LOVED LOVED LOVED it. Served with brown rice and garlic and butter sauted green beans and spinach. Big hit :) Next time I will make it with maybe a can of Northern beans, the garbanzo beans were a tad dry, and will try to make it vegan.
