Tofu "Meat" Loaf

I make meat loaf for the rest of the fam occasionally and I usually come up with some simple alternative for me, like fried sliced tofu or maybe a Qrunch burger. But today I decided to find a tofu "meat" load recipe to try out. I discovered this recipe from midgelet and really liked it. I would have just pinned it (a la Pinterest) but there are no pictures so it's a no go in Pinterability. (OK, that's a totally lame Meg-word. I openly and fully admit it. But I'm leaving it there. So deal with it.) I'm posting the recipe here so that I can find it easily again, and I'm adjusting it a bit closer to what I actually did.


  • 1 container of tofu ( firm )
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 Tbs mustard
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • squirt of garlic paste
  • 1/2 of a smallish onion, chopped fine-ish
  • 1 cup or so of puffed millet (or some other puffed grain... or a couple slices of mashed bread)


  • Mix everything up. Smash it into a bread tin. Cook it for about 30 - 40 minutes at 350 F until it looks toasty.
