Jennifer's Magical Loaf Studio

Somehow I've missed this up 'till now, but it sure looks like fun...

The Magical Loaf Studio: Create Your Own Adventist-Style Vegan Dinner Loaf!: "
Design Your Own Adventist-Style Vegan Dinner Loaf!

Here's the recipe it created for me:

Amy's Loaf


1/2 cup cashews
2 TB margarine
One large carrot, peeled and grated
One cup mushrooms, cleaned and chopped
2 cups cooked garbanzo beans, partly mashed
1 cup cooked amaranth
1/4 to 1/2 cup vegetable broth, as needed
1/2 cup uncooked Cream of Wheat
2 TB nutritional yeast flakes
Several dashes vegetarian Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp. salt


Preheat the oven to 350º. Spray a loaf pan or 8x8 square baking pan
with nonstick spray and set aside (an 8x8 pan makes a crisper loaf).

Grind the cashews into a coarse meal using a food processor or
spice/coffee grinder. Place in a large mixing bowl and set aside.

Sauté any vegetables you've chosen in the margarine until soft.
Add to the large mixing bowl along with all the remaining
ingredients. Mix and mash together well, adding only as much
liquid as needed to create a soft, moist loaf that holds
together and is not runny (you may not need to add any
liquid if the grains and protein are very moist).
Add more binder/carbohydrate as needed if the loaf seems too wet.

Press mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes
to 1 hour, or until cooked through.

Let the loaf cool in the pan for 10 to 15 minutes, then
turn out onto a plate or platter and slice. Serve with potatoes,
vegetables, and vegetarian gravy, if desired.

Cold leftover slices of Amy's Loaf make a great
sandwich filling.

Jennifer's Disclaimer: I have not personally tried every
possible combination of ingredients and therefore
cannot vouch for the tastiness or efficacy of every
Dinner Loaf creation. Happy eating!


I haven't made this yet, but I'm looking forward to it!

I read a loaf like recipe like this in a 7th day advenist cookbook that I read many years ago. Interesting isn't it! I haven't tried it yet.
