Meat and Nut Loaf

Print PrintShare with Friends


A recipe that is an invitation to play! One glance at these ingredients immediately suggests a loaf with a distinctly "vegetarian" slant, but interestingly (for an otherwise "vegetarian" recipe), this recipe also contains meat. The recipe specifies "steak", but obviously you could make it with any ground or minced meat. You can also vary the ratio between the meat and the nuts, vary the chopped vegetable you include and experiment with different nuts, depending on your preferences. Except for listing ?minced steak? as ?minced meat?, and having to replace the reference to "vegetable salt" with an ingredient which conformed to Recipezaar's recognised ingredients (I decided herb-seasoned salt was most compatible with the spirit of the other ingredients), I've posted this recipe with the ingredients and directions exactly as I found them in Dorothy Hall's 'The Natural Health Cookbook'. Take up the invitation ? and enjoy playing!
