This was posted at Fat Free Vegan …I made a few changes, which are noted.
2 cups of prepared veg broth (1 cup of Veggie broth if you are using seitan)
½ cup ketchup
2 tbsp tamari (or soy sauce) – I used Bragg’s Amino Liquids
2 cups of TVP granules – I used my Homemade Seitan and made it into ‘ground’ seitan’ by putting it into a food processor
1 cup of quick oats or bread crumbs - I used Bread Crumbs
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 tblsp of nutritional yeast
1 tsp each garlic granules, onion powder, oregano and basil
(BBQ topping option: 1/3 cup unsweetened ketchup, 2 tbls tamari, a good shake of liquid smoke) – Optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
1. In medium bowl, combine prepared broth, ketchup, tamari and TVP (seitan). Mix to combine and let stand 10 minutes until the liquid is absorbed.
2. Add remaining ingredients, except topping. Mix well
3. Pack mixture into a 9 x 5 loaf pan or a glass casserole. (Many people making this suggest just forming into a loaf on a baking sheet.) Bake 40-45 minutes.
4. If using topping, spread on loaf during the last 10 minutes of baking. (I didn’t use the sauce on top, but I did make the Fat Free Mushroom Gravy.)
Tastes great with Fat-Free Mushroom Gravy and mashed potatoes.
Fat-Free Mushroom Gravy
1 cup water or vegetable broth
1 tblsp barley miso
1 Tblsp tamari
2 tblsp nutritional yeast
1/4 cup diced mushrooms
pepper to taste
1 tblsp arrowroot mixed with 1 tblsp water
Combine all ingredients except arrowroot in small saucepan; simmer for 5 minutes. Do not boil as this will kill the beneficial bacteria in miso.
Add arrowroot mixture a little at a time, stirring constantly until thickened.
Use on meatloaf, potatoes, biscuits, etc.
