The Best Vegan Meatloaf Using Impossible Meat Recipe

 I have a confession to make.  I love meatloaf.  I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but growing up in West Virginia it was one of my favorite meals, and I always looked forward to when it was on the menu.  Ironically enough, when I got married, and was learning how to cook, it was one of the recipes I struggled with most.  My meatloaf was either dry and tough.  Or, it would totally fall apart.  But once I got the meatloaf recipe down, my Classic Meatloaf Recipe was perfection every time.  Fast forward to current day.  I still LOVE meatloaf, but I no longer eat meat.  Problematic?  Actually no.  I'm about to blow your mind with The Best Vegan Meatloaf Recipe Using Impossible Meat


This Vegan Meatloaf using Impossible Meat is moist and flavorful.  It has great texture.  It's so easy to make. What I really love about this vegan meatloaf recipe is that it uses things that you would most likely have in your plant-based pantry.  I know you are going to love this one so...

Let's Get Started!
For The Best Vegan Meatloaf Using Impossible Meat Recipe you will need a few simple ingredients:

  • 12 oz of Impossible Burger
  • Egg replacer, equivalent of 2 eggs
  • 2/3 c Quick Oats
  • 2/3 c Plant Milk
  • 1 Tbsp Dried Minced Onion
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Dried Parsley
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • BBQ Sauce for topping
To begin you will want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 


For the next step you will need to prepare your egg replacer. And before you ask, YES!  You must use an egg replacer.  This is what binds the meatloaf together. 

Follow the directions on the back of the packaging for the equivalent of 2 eggs. 

NOTES ON EGG REPLACER:

Let's talk egg replacer shall we?  I really like using the Bob's Red Mill Egg Replacer. I will leave a link for it (HERE), I can usually find it at my local grocery stores.  It always works for me so I can't recommend it enough.  However you can use things like extra virgin olive oil, flax egg, vegan mayonnaise, etc.  


While the egg replacer is thickening, go ahead and combine the Impossible Burger (its , quick oats, onion powder, garlic powder, dried minced onion, dried parsley, salt, and pepper into a mixing bowl. 

NOTES ON SPICES:

You can absolutely use fresh onion, garlic, and parsley in this recipe.  The reason I choose not to is because one, I feel like it interferes with the integrity of the meatloaf.  And two, in my opinion, the dried ingredients give me the most flavor payoff, but this is your kitchen so you do what you want.  No one is judging you. 


Now add the egg replacer to the Impossible Meat mixture


Along with the plant milk. 


Once again mix everything together, but be sure not to over work it.  Once it comes together, stop mixing.  Nobody wants tough vegan meatloaf.  


Shape the Impossible Meat mixture into a loaf shape on a lined baking sheet. 


Place the vegan meatloaf into a 350 degree oven and bake for 45 minutes. 


After 45 minutes this is what the vegan meatloaf will look.

I know that it LOOKS dry, but I assure you it is not.  Remember, Impossible Burger does not have the greasy, fat content of animal meat so it won't release as much moisture as a traditional meatloaf.


Brush the topping of choice over your vegan meatloaf.  For us it's ALWAYS our favorite BBQ sauce, but for you, maybe it is something else. 

Place back into the 350 degree oven for another 15 minutes. 


Now remove the vegan meatloaf from the oven, place on a cutting board. Let rest for 10 minutes.  


After 10 minutes slice it up and you are ready to eat!  We served this vegan meatloaf with some delicious mashed potatoes that I made in my instant pot and some of my sons favorite canned green beans (hey it can't ALL me gourmet lol). Everyone LOVED this and it was a huge hit with my non vegan friends as well!  I feel confident in saying that this IS The Best Vegan Meatloaf using Impossible Meat Recipe that you will ever find! I know you are going to love this one so get in the kitchen and give it a try tonight!  

And as always...

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy Living,
