Black Bean Vegetarian Meat Loaf


This was a creation based on trying my first black bean vegetarian burger and deciding I had to learn how to make one, then I decided to go for a vegetarian black bean meatloaf instead! Based on a 4-ounce serving, this recipe could be used to make twelve 4-ounce burgers instead of one meatloaf.
