Today is Meatless Mondays. Todays recipe is one I make for my family and that the kids LOVE.
This TVP Meatloaf Muffins recipe is based on a vegetable infused meatloaf I had at a friends years ago, but as I cannot eat meat any longer, I had to replace a few items. Making it in the muffin pan makes this delicious meal portion controlled and perfect for packing in lunches or for picnics.
What are you having for dinner?
*Note: Worcestershire Sauce has anchovies in it unless you purchase the vegan specific kind. We are actually pescatarian so regular Worcestershire Sauce is what I used.
*Warning, we like our food a little on the spicy side, you may want to use less cayenne or use mild diced tomatoes.
*Place 1 small cube of cheese (or flavored cheese curd works well too) into center of each meatloaf muffin before baking for a yummy, cheesy treat.
Meatless Monday is a non-profit public health initiative in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Launched in 2003, the goal of Meatless Monday is to cut saturated fat intake, which in turn reduces the risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer. Going meatless one day a week can also decrease our carbon footprint and save precious resources like fresh water and fossil fuel.
