Looking for a nutloaf or nut cutlet recipe sm
This is an English "vegetarian" something I think and I have searched this site, but might be willing to look other places if someone had something good.
I have a book that has several recipes in it. One of them calls for Brazil nuts en croute. It was just entirely too rich to actually eat, but it did taste good.
I see something with almonds and/or cashews that makes a moist patty that you dredge in bread crumbs and bake. Ideas?
LadyDragonfly, I too experimented with nut loaf (there's one on the site as you say) and I agree, it is faar too rich to eat much at once...Good for a potluck or such, you can share! Nutloaf is the traditional British veggie's alternative holiday meal...I suppose in winter you don't store quite so many of those rich calories. The one on this site is very tasty but I found it indigestible. I have frozen half of it and we'll see how well it survives the experience...as Damon Runyon would put it, "I will leave you know." ;D
I froze half the nutloaf recipe on this site and it kept well, I topped it with some vegan gravy. Still too rich for those of us watching calories and waistlines, tho a wonderful treat.
I feel so terrible that I'm unable to source this recipe but I've had it for so long (way before I ever started posting info online). I, and everyone I've served it to, have loved it. I've also made a few alterations.
Ingredients (use vegan versions):
substitute for 2 eggs
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tsp Bragg
1 box extra firm tofu (350 g)
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 packet vegan dried onion soup mix (1.5 oz)
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
½ cup chopped celery
1 grated carrot
2 cups chopped mushrooms (portobellos work great)
oregano, basil, thyme, marjoram & ground pepper
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
Mix egg substitute, soy sauce, tofu & onion soup mix together in food processor. Add walnuts & blend until smooth.
Saute vegetables until onions are transparent (add other diced veggies if you wish - ie peppers, carrots, etc). Add herbs/spices while vegetables are frying.
Mix ingredients from food processor, cooked vegetables & vegan bread crumbs together in a large bowl.
Press into a greased loaf pan.
Bake at 350 degress F. for 45 minutes. Broil on high for 3 more minutes. Let cool slightly. Turn loaf out and slice. It's really good served with marinara.
