Hi! Wing It Vegan is currently on its annual hiatus. It might take me a while to reply to comments, messages, emails, love letters, hate mail, and all that good stuff. I had to turn on that hateful word-verification thingie for comments due to too much spam - it is rather annoying, sorry about that! Thanks for stopping by!

VeganMoFo - Halloweegan Meatloaf Scramble With Mashed Potato Ghosts

Remember my Freaky Monday Meat Cakes? This is kind of like that, but instead of baking a meatless meatloaf, I made a scramble. Sometimes veggie-loaves can be mushy, and this scramble tasted like a veggie-loaf but without that yucky mushy quality. We served them in dessert cups with mashed potato ghosts on top!

Halloweegan Meatloaf Scramble With Mashed Potato Ghosts
Meatloaf Scramble

Ingredients

1 cup rehydrated TVP
1 cup ground beef-style veggie crumbles
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
1 tsp Mrs Dash salt-free seasoning
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup cornmeal
olive oil for cooking

1- In a medium bowl combine the TVP and veggie ground beef.
2- Stir in the tomato sauce, tomato paste, ketchup, tamari, and Mrs. Dash.
3- Stir in the breadcrumbs and cornmeal and mix well.
4- Preheat a non stick skillet with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil.
5- Cook the meatloaf mix like you would cook a tofu scramble. Stir every now and then to cook it thoroughly. Mine took 25 minutes and it was enough for 4 individual dessert cups.

If you're going to Halloween these up, spoon some mashed potatoes on top and use the spoon to mold the ghosts, a la "Close Encounters of the Third Kind". Use a toothpick to "drop" ketchup eyes and mouths onto their little faces.

Have a happy weekend everyone! :)

    Do I have to join a secret club to find out? :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Andy, sorry about the delay! TVP is textured vegetable protein. Here's the Bob's Red Mill brand of TVP.
