Amy's Veggie Loaf (dinner 10.12.10)

I was feeling kind of lazy tonight, and I was home alone for dinner, so I took advantage of not having to cook. Instead, I had one of the healthy frozen entrees I had in the freezer along with some carrots on the side to boost my veggies. My meal of choice tonight was Amy's Kitchen Organic Veggie Loaf. Amy's describes it as a "Meatless alternative to an old time favorite, made from a unique blend of grains, vegetables and legumes and smothered with gravy. Organic mashed potatoes, peas and corn on the side." Basically, it's meatless "meatloaf" in gravy with mashed potatoes, and a side of corn & peas. It's a totally healthy vegan meal made in just 5 minutes in the microwave. No mess, no fuss at all. The first time I ever had this meal a while back, I wasn't sure if I liked it. It has a very unique flavor, which I had to acquire a taste for. I don't think I've ever eaten real meatloaf, so I can't compare the two, but it didn't take long for me to grow used to the exciting flavor this dish brings. The loaf is made from a blend of lentils, oats, lots of vegetables and spices, and is covered in a thick gravy sauce. It's moist and has a texture somewhat similar to meat, but I don't really think of it as a meat substitute. It's hard to describe how it tastes, but if you're familiar with the "odd" tastes vegetarian meals take on, it's definitely worth a try. It's low in calories, high in protein & fiber and packed with nutrition!
