vegan meatloaf My kids love the bean burgers I make, so I thought why not make a vegan meatloaf recipe?  My kids and husband are not vegan or even vegetarian, but I only cook vegan at home.  I have dramatically changed the way they look at food and in the process their diet by default is at least 80% vegan (patting myself on the back).   Sometimes you just want those comfort foods and this is a great one.  Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Vegan Meatloaf Recipe Instructions

1. Drain and rinse kidney beans.

2. Smash kidney beans (I get in there with a potato masher and then I use my hands).

3. Add onion, Rice, Oats, BBQ sauce, liquid smoke, salt and pepper.

4. Using your hands, mix all the ingredients together.

5. Once mixed place into a baking pan (I use a bread pan and as you can see from the picture…it is well loved).

6. Pour BBQ sauce on top of the loaf and spread it evenly across the top.

7. Place in the oven at 325 degrees and cook for 40 minutes. vegan meatloaf

    We were talking about making black bean burgers later this week. Maybe we will have to try this instead. Looks delicious.

    Meatloaf is one of my all time favorite meals, so if it can be made healthier and vegan then I am all for trying it!

  5. Mandy says:

    I’m very impressed! It does look like a very filling meal! I would have never guessed just by looking that it wasn’t a real meatloaf!

  6. Karen says:

    I;m not sure if I can tolerate a bean loaf, but my husband would love it. Thanks for the recipe.

    I never had meatloaf as a kid, but tried it a few months ago as an adult and LOVE it! This is a great variation! And I LOVE kidney beans!

  8. Trish says:

    Thank you for all the kind words. It definitely is very hearty. One slice was enough for all of us. I hope you try it! If you do, stop back and let me know what your think :)

    This is my second time to make this. My husband and son are not vegan or vegetarian either, but they love this. Thanks for the great recipe!

    Is 40- ounce can of Kidney beans correct? Sounds like a lot.
