Vegan "Meatloaf" with Veggies
Health Highlights
Loaded with veggies and fiber, this Vegan "Meatloaf" is a plant-based twist on classic comfort food!


2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
2 cup White onion (diced)
1 cup diced Celery
1/2 cup chopped Carrots (diced)
2 tbsp Flaxseed meal (ground)
4 tbsp Water (to combine with flaxmeal)
2 cup Walnuts
1 1/2 cup Sun-dried tomatoes (soaked in boiling water, 10 minutes)
2 tbsp Coconut aminos, Coconut Secret (or tamari/ soy sauce)
2 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
2 tsp Cumin
1 1/2 tsp Chili powder
1 tsp Paprika, smoked
1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
2 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F (177C) and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan set over high heat and add in diced onions. Sauté on high, stirring 3 minutes, then reduce temperature to low and let caramelize. When onions are lightly golden brown, add in diced celery and carrots. Cook to soften (5 to 8 minutes). Turn off the heat and set it aside.
  3. In a small bowl combine the flax meal with water. Set aside.
  4. Place walnuts, sun-dried tomatoes, coconut aminos (or tamari/soy sauce), vinegar, cumin, chili powder, paprika, cayenne, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt in the bowl of a food processor and process until roughly combined and resembles the texture of ground meat, adding in a little water if necessary. 
  5. Transfer the walnut mixture to a large bowl and stir in the onion and flax mixture from steps 2 and 3. Stir to combine.
  6. Lightly press walnut mixture into prepared loaf pan and place in oven. Bake the loaf for 40 minutes, or until the top has browned. Allow it to sit for 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
  7. Serve with a scoop of mashed potatoes and steamed veggies, or sides of choice!


Quick Tips

  • If you'd like to glaze the loaf, spread a thin layer of tomato sauce or organic ketchup over the top of the loaf before serving.

Nutrition Highlight
