Meatless Meatloaf with Mushroom Gravy

July 25, 2022



1 pound Japanese eggplants (about 3)

1/2 cup walnuts

1 pound firm tofu

8 ounces shiitake or button mushrooms, stemmed

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup wheat germ

1 cup old-fashioned oats

1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley

1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage leaves

1 large egg, plus 1 egg white

1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves

1 tablespoon kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon red chile flakes

Mushroom Gravy:

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

6 ounces shitake, cremini, or button mushrooms

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon Marsala or sherry

1 cup vegetable broth, homemade or low sodium canned

2 sprigs fresh thyme, plus 1 teaspoon leaves

1/4 cup heavy cream


  1. For the loaf, roast the eggplants until the skin is black over a gas burner or under an electric broiler, flipping as necessary to cook both sides equally. For 20 minutes of steaming, wrap in foil. Remove the skin from the foil with a soft brush, or rinse it with warm water.
  2. Set oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. The walnuts should be crushed to a fine powder in a food processor. Place in a large bowl. Pulverize the mushrooms, tofu, and eggplant into tiny bits. Mixture and the rest of the bread ingredients should be added to the walnuts. Combine everything in a consistent manner. Bake the mixture for an hour in a 1 1/2-quart loaf pan or casserole dish.
  4. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat for the gravy. Add the mushrooms and simmer for about 8 minutes, stirring periodically. Add salt and pepper to taste and season mushrooms. Spread the flour over the mushrooms and stir for about a minute, or until just barely browned. Marshala and broth should be added. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes or until thickened. Season with salt and pepper, then stir in the cream and fresh thyme leaves.
  5. Slice the meatless loaf, top with the mushroom gravy, and serve.
