Vegetarian “meat” loaf

I first stumbled across this recipe in a cheap eats cook book and used it lots when my children were little.  Later in life as I gained several vegetarian  and / or gluten free friends it was resurrected to quickly, cheaply and easily cater for a range of dietary requirements.  For those who are battling the bulge this is a low fat staple that allows you to enjoy those homely meals.   You can tart it up with herbs, garlic, grated vegetables etc depending on your personal preferences.

Vegetarian Loaf
  • 1 egg , beaten
  • 1 Cup low fat Cottage Cheese
  • 1 Cup Rolled Oats
  • 1 teaspoon Sage or Parsley
  • 1  Onion finely chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Marmite or Vegemite (yeast extract spread)
  1. Mix all ingredients together and put in greased loaf tin.
  2.  Bake approx 45 mins in moderate oven till firm and brown.
  3. Eat hot or cold

Variations make this a really versatile recipe.

  • This recipe can also be shaped and cooked as rissoles, balls, sausages or burger patties
  • Take out the herbs and add Thai seasoning, or Moroccan, or Mexican etc
  • Add grated carrots, courgettes, sweet potato etc to get the kids (and Dianne) to eat their vegies
  • The mix can also be used for sausage roll and party pies……..
