Vegan Impossible Meatloaf stuffed with dairy-free mozzarella cheese is a hearty comforting meatless dinner.
Whether you are vegan or just just someone who just likes to incorporate a few meatless meals into your diet—this vegan meatloaf is great plant-based dinner to add to your meal plan.
Meatloaf was one of my favorite comforting foods growing up. I was always excited to have meatloaf for dinner, especially during the winter months.
This vegan meatloaf is just as comforting and hearty as a traditional meatloaf.
The inspiration for this vegan meatloaf recipe is my Grandma's meatloaf recipe. In her recipe, she divides the meatloaf into two layers. She would add a layer of cheese in-between the layers. Instead of topping the meatloaf with a ketchup based topping, she would serve the meatloaf with marinara sauce.
This Impossible Meatloaf is a vegan adaptation of her recipe. I use Impossible meat for the "meat" part of the meatloaf. I divide the meatloaf into two layers. Shredded vegan cheese is added in-between the meatloaf layers.
Adding the layer of cheese makes this meatloaf extra special. The best part of the recipe is that the Impossible meatloaf is realtively easy to make too.
The recipe is also toddler approved! My little one was a big fan of the meatloaf and asked for a second piece.
- Impossible burger: This is the vegan meat needed for this recipe. You can find it at most grocery stores these days. You can also use your favorite ground vegan plant-based meat. Beyond Meat would work great as well.
- Breadcrumbs: To bind the meatloaf, the breadcrumbs will keep everything together.
- Marinara Sauce: A little bit of marinara sauce adds flavor and moisture to the meatloaf.
- Vegan Worcestershire sauce: The sauce adds that traditional "meaty" flavor that you'll find in meatloaf. Most store-bought Worcestershire sauce contains fish. Be sure to check the ingredients. I like Annie's and the Kroger brand.
- Aromatics- Grated onions, garlic powder and fresh parsley add aromatics to the meatloaf.
- Vegan Cheese- a layer of shredded vegan cheese creates a cheesy meatloaf.
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
- In a mixing bowl combine the meatloaf ingredients until combined. Divide the mixture into two. Place one half on the baking sheet.
- Add the shredded cheese and then place the remaining meatloaf mixture on top and form into a loaf shape.
- Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until it's no longer pink in the middle.
- Slice and serve with marinara sauce.
Leftovers will keep in the fridge for about 3 days, stored in an airtight container.
