There’s a great spot in Rutherford, NJ I used to frequent while traveling for a client called Park & Orchard. They made a serious vegetarian meatloaf that was enough for two meals. Not only that, it was a healthy food I could enjoy on the road.
Since I’ve slowed my travel schedule, I am getting back in the kitchen and made my own veggie “meat”loaf last night. It’s not quite P&O, but it’s darned good. Here’s what’s in it: Quinoa, Black Beans, Northern Beans, Flaxseed, Oatmeal, Red wine caramelized onions, and garlic. For some added punch, I added some chili hot sauce and a touch of chili powder in addition to the necessary salt and pepper. I topped it with an extra sharp Cabot Clothbound Cheddar and it was great. Two 1″ slices filled me up no problem.
Tonight, I’m going to top it with some guacamole and cilantro low-fat sour cream.
