1 loaf


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 4 tablespoons water

  • 2 tablespoons egg substitute

  • 1 ½ pounds vegan beef crumbles

  • 1 ½ cups chopped day-old baguette

  • ½ cup ketchup, divided

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 2 teaspoons vegan brown sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.

  2. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat; add onion and garlic. Saute until fragrant and slightly soft, 3 to 5 minutes.

  3. Combine water and egg substitute in a large bowl; add onion mixture, vegan beef crumbles, baguette, 1/4 cup ketchup, and parsley. Mix together by hand until well combined. Transfer mixture into the prepared loaf pan.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, stir remaining ketchup and brown sugar together in a small bowl.

  6. Remove the loaf from the oven and brush with the ketchup mixture. Continue to bake until browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean, about 30 minutes more. Let rest for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
