Meatless Loaf for thanksgiving with red beans
I had been thinking of this meatless loaf for several weeks, and I finally gathered all the ingredients and experiment!
The result is just amazingly delicious! Even my mum was stocked by the taste! It is really addictive and actually we had it during the whole week, with different sides and dishes, and I never got bored! Which is a kind of challenge to me. I cannot stand to eat twice the same dish most of the time.
One part of the magic happens thanks to the celery and the mix of carrots and mushrooms with the soy sauce. You get a true meat taste.
