Ingredients:

1 large sweet potato
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
1 medium carrot, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 cups finely chopped mushrooms
1 1/2 cups cooked cannellini beans or 1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added or low sodium cannellini beans, drained
8 ounces extra firm tofu, excess water squeezed out
1/4 cup low sodium ketchup plus additional for top of loaf (see note)
1 tablespoon Dr. Fuhrman's MatoZest or other no-salt seasoning blend, adjusted to taste
1 tablespoon mustard
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning (a blend of sage, thyme, marjoram, rosemary, black pepper and nutmeg)
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup old fashioned oats, pulsed in food processor to a coarse powder
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup chopped parsley

Instructions:

Pierce sweet potato in several places with a fork and microwave until soft, about 5-6 minutes. When cool enough to handle, peel and set aside.

Heat a large skillet. Add the onion, celery, carrot, garlic and mushrooms and cook, stirring regularly until tender and all the water from the mushrooms has evaporated. Mash beans with a fork and add to the mushroom mixture.

Place the peeled sweet potato into a food processor along with the tofu, ketchup, MatoZest, mustard, poultry seasoning, oregano and black pepper. Process until smooth and well combined.

Add tofu mixture to mushrooms and beans along with oats, pecans and parsley and mix well.

Spoon into a loaf pan that has been lightly rubbed with a minimal amount of oil. Spread ketchup on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Allow to sit for 30 minutes before slicing.

Note: This mushroom and bean loaf is also excellent served with Porcini Mushroom Gravy or Better Brown Gravy (recipes are in the Salad, Dressings, Dips and Sauces section). If serving with gravy, don't spread ketchup on top before baking.

I didn't have Matozest and I used 6 oz tomato paste (small can). It came out a little dry and slightly bland.
I chopped the vegies into bite size pieces instead of fine, and forgot to turn the oats into puree, so it came out crunchy--which I actually liked.
Adding some ketchup improved the flavor, but next time I will try to get the matozest since the ketchup does have salt and is less healthy.

This recipe turned out very good. However, it takes much longer than 30 minutes to prepare it. It took me an hour of active prep time. I didn't have any matozest but I substitued Spike seasoning and it was great. We like served with some homemade healthy catsup on top, not too much, but just a little over the top. It is important to let it siet for the minutes before slicing as it firms up a bit.

This turned out great: moist, held together well, tastier than meat loaf, and satisfying. We give it five stars in the genre of meat-free meatloaf. It's a nice change of pace from soups and salads. We made homemade ketchup, and it made a really nice crust on top. We used Magic Salt Free seasoning instead of poultry seasoning. We put salsa on top while eating it, but just to add flavor, not because it was dry at all.

I thought this recipe was delicious. I didn't have matozest, so I used vegizest and Mrs. Dash. I also didn't have ketchup. Next time I will try Margie's suggestion and put salsa on top. I would definitely make this recipe again.

I recently made this recipe. It was very good and satisfying. I peeled the yam and cubed it and cooked it in the pressure cooker for 3 minutes. I do not have mato zest I used trader Joes 21 seasoning salute 2 tanlespoons. By the way if your bean loaf is on the dry side you can put it in a steamer for a couple minutes.

I just made this recipe for dinner tonight and it was absolutely delicious! I did, however, make a few tweaks. I have a sensitivity to soy so I eliminated the tofu and instead added another cup of beans that I had on hand. A food processor makes the veggie chopping so much easier, too. I also left it in the oven for an extra 20 mins and let it sit for an extra 30 mins to firm up. The consistency was terrific. The loaf turned out moist inside with a crunchy outer crust. I bet this is even better the next day as leftovers.
Will definitely be making this one again!

This is my first time on the site. Based on these reviews, I will definitely make this tomorrow for dinner. I need to go to Trader Joe's for a few missing ingredients but this sounds delicious. I will report on my outcome and rate it.

This sounds delicious; I'll definitely try this recipe. TIP: to really squeeze out the water in the tofu, use a ricer, it works great! Once the moisture is out squeeze all the way to extract the tofu crumbles.

I found this to be delectable. It's the first recipe I've tried from the site. I used 16oz of mushrooms, maybe it was too much, but it came out great. I didn't have the Matozest, so instead I used 2 Tbsp of Herbes de Province from Penzey's and added a Tbsp of Honey & 1 Red Bell Pepper to suite my tastes. The sweetness of the yams along with the rich bouquet of veggies really makes this a main course.

This was surprisingly good! The thought of a white bean loaf kind of turned me off initially, but then I looked at the favorable reviews and decided to give it a try. It comes out brown so that is much more appetizing than something off-white. I chopped the carrots pretty small, but the smaller you can get it the better or you will have noticeable chunks of carrot in it. That isn't exactly a bad thing--just not typical for a "meatloaf". As Cindy857 noted above, the active prep time was more than the 30 minutes stated. It took me one hour, and that was with me using a Vidalia Chop Wizard to chop the veggies. The long cook time enabled me to have plenty of time to clean my kitchen which was pretty messy by the time I had the loaf in the oven. ;)

Eager to try this recipe, but feel stupid asking about the oats: 1 cup measured before or after the pulsing?? Thank you!!

Next time I make this, I will add tomatoe sauce.

I omitted the oats, and added millet flour instead.

This was delicious, but the prep time took me over an hour. It is a complicated recipe, but if you have the time it is very worth it.

Just made it and it's in the oven, but no way was it going to fit in ONE loaf pan!! So I put it in two--will probably not need to cook it as long? Sure hope it's OK to freeze a loaf....?

I followed the instructions but found it to be the consistency of refried beans, didn't look like the picture :(  I agree with a person above it took an hour at least just for the meatloaf.

A good trick for these different "loafs" (or is it loaves?.. lol) is to use BBQ sauce in place of ketchup (watch the ingredients of course).   A nice variation.. hope this helps :)

Yes, drain and rinse well. Also, this loaf should freeze well.

I really liked the flavor EXCEPT the sweet potato made this a little too sweet for my taste. Is there anything I can substitute for the sweet potato?

Try chef Jame's R's version "Roasted Cashew Mushroom Loaf with Home Style Ketchup". His recipe (available if you are a member is for 2 loaves) and isn't sweet. It is labor intensive but it serves 16 (freeze as much as you want) and is an absolute favorite in my house.

I made this tonight. I gave it a 4 because it was such a lengthy process. I started around 4 and ate at 7 pm.

I did not have a few things on hand, I substituted 1 cup of cooked lentils (ok canned, rinsed and drained) for tofu, walnuts for pecans and used Mrs. Dash for the seasoning. I cooked it in a convection oven and cut off some time, but I did let it sit for 30 minutes.  I like the crunch from the oats and nuts. I've cut it up into the 8 servings and will freeze a few for later. I would make this again... but start a lot earlier.

Any winter squash cooked and drained could work. Have you ever tried kaboucha squash? It's my favorite with and without skin.

I'm back after making the recipe on Monday. I substituted a medium-sized russet potato, cooked and peeled, for the sweet potato since neither my husband nor I can stand to smell or eat those orange things, haha.

The loaf was absolutely delicious! Of course, it tasted even better the next day for lunch, and dinner, and lunch the third day. For leftovers, I topped my piece with a bit of tomato paste, a sprinkling of dried basil, hot sauce, and half an ounce of vegan mozzarella.

I will put this at the top of our monthly faves!

I won't use tofu..I won't use any kind of soy product.  What does the tofu do for this recipe?  What could I possibly use in place of it?  This is a nice meal option to attempt to make vs another salad or soup.  BTW, I love the prepared soups!  I really wish Dr. Fuhrman could somehow come up with some other prepared foods, it would make it so much easier to follow this eating plan, especially for a lazy person such as myself.  Thanks,

I make this about once a month.  I never process the oats and I'm happy with the results.  Someone else mentioned that it does take more than 30 minutes to prepare.  Takes me an hour, but my food processor is small, so I have to make it in batches.  I'll be rectifing that soon with a new food processor.
