Crisp and cool Fall weather this time of year makes me crave heartier food. This rich and savory Sourdough Stuffing Vegan Meatloaf is a delicious option for a weeknight dinner or special Friday night meal. It’s also a great plant-based alternative to turkey on Thanksgiving. Mixed with an herb and mushroom sourdough stuffing, it tastes like Thanksgiving.
Traditional meatloaves combine breadcrumbs and meat. I experimented by swapping out a traditional stuffing for breadcrumbs, and used Beyond Meat’s Beyond Burger instead. I loved the results and hope you will too.
I am also sharing a quick and easy golden gravy recipe that tastes divine drizzled on top. Make a pot of mashed potatoes and roast a tray of Brussel Sprouts for a holiday-esque meal to celebrate!
