Meat(less) Tofu Loaf

I have been experimenting with a lot of flours and proteins lately, but haven’t really touched upon the vegan world. I had some tofu in the house…. I also had some ground turkey… Usually with the ground turkey, I bulk cook meatballs for the week. So I thought, what could I make using the tofu, rather than my boring way of cooking it in a pan with a ton of veggies and over rice! (lol)

Meatloaf came to mind…. and my mind began to wonder. Here is what I came up with!

Meat(less) Tofu Bake

Ingredients:

1 entire package of Firm Tofu
2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
2 “flax” eggs (see notes below)
1 cup spinach (you can always use different vegetables or add more)
Garlic Pepper
Sea Salt and additional pepper

***Notes: To make a flax egg, combine 1 tablespoon ground flax with 2 tablespoons of warm water. Let sit for 5 minutes to become paste like.***

Mix all ingredients and place into a greased bread pan. Bake at 350* for 30-35 minutes. Remove and let cool. Work you way around the loaf with a knife and slice. Remove with a little caution.

This is a way for me to share my passion for living a healthy lifestyle, share my fitness journey and to create low calorie recipes for us and my daughter Makenna who has Prader-Willi Syndrome! Description My daughter was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Prader-Willi Syndrome which in a nutshell, (but please feel free to google for more information) will cause a chronic feeling of hunger that, coupled with a metabolism that utilizes drastically fewer calories than normal, can lead to excessive eating and life-threatening obesity. The food compulsion makes for constant supervision necessary. This page is dedicated to her. She inspires me everyday to live a happy, healthy and active lifestyle. I want to create a healthy environment for her. With my passion for nutrition and fitness, I hope I can spread awareness about PWS and create healthy recipes for her to enjoy with never feeling deprived. She has given me new hope to move forward with my passion in nutrition and become a Registered Dietitian. My focus will be on childhood obesity, emphasizing in PWS. I look forward to sharing my journey with you all! ***Please note I am not a Registered Dietitian. I would classify myself as a "nutrition snob." I do all of this because I love learning about food and fitness. All the recipes posted are tired and can be adjusted to your lifestyle. ***
