Vegan Quinoa Meatloaf

I was browsing the internet and found this incredible recipe from Whole Foods Market for a quinoa meatloaf that is vegan, low fat and gluten free.Ingredients:1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, plus more for greasing8 ounces button mushrooms, slicedSalt and ground black pepper to taste1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained3/4 cup rolled oats2 cups cooked quinoa1 cup frozen green peas1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley and/or 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme10 sundried tomatoes packed in oil, drained and chopped1 cup (about 1 onion) chopped red onionMethod:Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8-inch loaf pan with oil; set aside. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes.Meanwhile, put beans, oats and 1/2 cup water into a food processor and pulse until almost smooth. In a large bowl, combine mushrooms, bean mixture, quinoa, peas, parsley, tomatoes, onion, salt and pepper. Transfer mixture to prepared loaf pan, gently pressing down and mounding it in the middle. Bake until firm and golden brown, 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Set aside to let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.Each 6 oz serving contains 4g of fat and 8g of protein.Personally, i would douse my meatloaf in a curried ketchup while it’s baking in the oven, but that’s just me.AKPC_IDS += “284,”;
