ANIMAL PEOPLE Holiday Nut Roast

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, October 2009:
ANIMAL PEOPLE Holiday Nut Roast

Mix together:

2 pounds of firm tofu, mashed well
2 cups of coarsely chopped walnuts

(Other nuts may be substituted,
such as sunflower seeds or pecans.)

Thoroughly blend in:

1/4 cup of soy sauce
2 teaspoons thyme leaves
1 teaspoon basil leaves
2 tablespoons of dried
parsley or 1/2 cup of
chopped fresh parsley
1 finely chopped onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic

(Seasonings may be altered to suit preferencees. For example, a
teaspoon of sage may be added, or you may add more garlic)

Finally, add:

1 cup of dried breadcrumbs
1/2 cup of whole wheat flour

Mix all ingredients well. Turn into oiled pan(s) and form
into a 1-inch thick loaf. Rub the top of the loaf with a very thin
coating of olive or other vegetable oil. Cover the pan(s) with foil,
and bake for one hour at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Take the foil off
the pan and cook about 10 minutes longer, until the top of the loaf
is browned. The loaf tastes best when crispy.
Serve with cranberry sauce, applesauce, or apple butter.
Good with vegetarian gravy and cornbread dressing (you can adapt any
traditional recipe by simply substituting vegetable broth or water
for the customary meat broth).

batter into oiled square or round cake pan. Bake 20-25 minutes,
until just brown, at 350 degrees.
