1 - 8x4 inch meatloaf


  • 1 red onion, chopped

  • 2 stalks celery, sliced

  • 1 tomato, chopped

  • 1 cup baby carrots

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 (12 ounce) package extra firm tofu

  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 cup bread crumbs

  • 1 cup sharp Cheddar cheese

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can crushed tomatoes


  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 8x4 inch loaf pan.

  2. Place the onion, celery, fresh tomato, garlic, carrots, and salt and pepper into a food processor. Process until the vegetables have been pureed. Add the egg, tofu, and Parmesan cheese; process. Finally, pour in the bread crumbs, and process until evenly incorporated and the mixture is firmer. Pack the mixture into the prepared loaf pan.
