45 Min

Here's a way to turn your favorite veggie standards into a hearty main dish. It's an all-vegetable version of meat loaf. And it's so simple, you might wanna make two or three so you can have them on hand in the freezer.

What You'll Need

  • 1 onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 2 carrots, grated (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 of a green bell pepper, finely chopped (about ¼ cup)
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8- x 4-inch loaf pan with aluminum foil. Grease foil.
  2. In a large bowl, combine onion, celery, carrots, green pepper, walnuts, bread crumbs, salt, black pepper, and dillweed. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and eggs until smooth.
  3. Stir mayonnaise mixture into vegetable mixture until well mixed; pour mixture into prepared pan and bake 45 to 50 minutes or until lightly browned.
  4. Let cool in pan about 15 minutes, then invert loaf and remove foil. Place right-side up on a serving platter and serve immediately or cover and chill until ready to use; reheat before serving.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

My family and I aren't 'vegetarians' or 'vegans', but we LOVE vegetables. I can't wait to make this. It seems that we'd all already have the necessary ingredients in our pantries & fridges to make this. Our tonight's supper is already planned, but this dish will definately be on our menu tomorrow evening. Thanks for finally providing a simple & healthy recipe for we 'health nuts'!

I saw Mr Food with this recipe many years ago. It's an all time favorite with us and is delicious on a sandwich later, too. The problem is you can't stop eating it!

Walnuts are a perfect protein... it blends in well with the rest of the recipe. This was delicious.... even my meat eating family enjoyed it. Give it a try and remember its not a MEAT loaf... just enjoy it for what it is... and for me ... a vegetarian it was awesome.

Why not put walnuts in the recipe They're very good for you and the nuts and veggies go good together.

Why would you put Walnuts in this recipe? Just not feeling it...
