It isn’t quite the same meatloaf as Mom used to make, but your family will love the tasty vegan version of this traditional mealtime favorite. A vegan meatloaf is low in fat, high in fiber and just plain delicious for vegans and non-vegans alike. You can even use the leftovers for a delicious meatloaf sandwich the next day.
