I can make a pretty decent tasting meatloaf, but not one that has a good, non-crumbly consistency. I have tried using vital wheat gluten to make it bind better, and that works, but it makes it taste funny. I've tried several other things (egg replacer, arrowroot slurries), but nothing that has a neutral or good flavor seems to actually work as a binding agent.

Anyway, I thought I would throw this issue out and see what kind of feedback I got from you people. (Also feel free to post your vegan meatloaf recipes -- I'd love to get more ideas.)

I made Isa's Lentil Olive burgers -but subbed portobella mushrooms for the crimini- and felt like it could very easily be morphed into a 'loaf' recipe.

my favorite loaf is from one of those sara kramer books, the tip top tofu loaf (or something like that). i made it once because it was quite literally the only thing i could make given the ingredients in my house and it's become a staple. i really like the texture and the outside gets a crispy and delicious layer... yeah i think i'm going to make this for dinner tonight

I've made Bryanna Clark Grogan's meatloaf recipe a bunch of times. My partner, who used to love meat meatloaf, raves about this vegan version.

She just wrote that entry about her quest for non-crumbly meatloaf, with lentils.

I love this recipe!

If you use commercial crumbles, I would advise cutting back on the salt. When I make this, I cut the salt in half and omit the soy sauce and it's still a bit too salty for me.
