Vegetarian / Vegan Meatloaf

“This is adapted from Vegetarian Times and is just about the best meatloaf ever - vegan, vegetarian or 'carnivorian' ... it's the 'meatloaf' sandwich recipe - - I've added nutritional yeast to boost the flavor and add B vitamins. My Domestic Accomplice's daughter made this for Christmas ... it was better than the turkey! You may also add mushrooms and/or red or green bell pepper, chopped and sauteed. I also use lemon pepper rather than regular pepper. And if you're on a stricter low-carb diet, you can substitute half of the rolled oats with flax seed meal.”
