My housemate came up with this recipe.  It is based off of her mother's meatloaf and is very tasty, easy to make, and filling.

F'loaf (faux meatloaf)

  • 453g / 16oz cottage cheese, creamed
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 60g / ½ c walnuts, finely chopped
  • 90-95g / 3c cornflakes cereal
  • 200g / 1 c mushrooms (after cooking)
  • ½ tsp celery salt
  • ¼ tsp thyme
  • ¼ tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ⅛ tsp black pepper
Alternate spices (one time I didn't have any of the above spices and the following improvisation also worked):
  • ½-1 tsp salt
  • ¼-½  tsp dill
  • ¼-½  tsp coriander
  • ½ tsp yellow mustard seed (grind before using)
  • ¼-½  tsp black pepper
  • Pre-heat oven to 350F.
  • Wash the mushrooms and chop them into about ½ in (1cm) pieces, and sauté until cooked. You want fairly small pieces to start with so they will be the right texture in the F'loaf.
  • Mix the beaten eggs into the cottage cheese, add the walnuts, cooked mushrooms, and seasoning and stir until well combined. Add the cornflakes and stir gently until mixed in (try not to crush the cornflakes too much). 
  • Pour the mix into an oiled or parchment lined loaf pan.
  • Optional: spread a thin layer of catsup across the top of the F'loaf mix.
  • Bake for 40-60 minutes or until cooked through and set. It will still jiggle a bit when it comes out of the oven. 
  • Remove from oven and let rest for 20-30 minutes or until cool before serving. This will let it set up to be easier to cut into slices.
That's all there is to it!
