2 tbsp of olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup of chopped walnuts
1 cup of rolled oats (or gluten free rolled oats)
1/2 cup of chopped mushrooms
2 cups of vegetable stock
2 chopped garlic cloves
3/4 cup of shredded carrots
3 tbsp of Dijon mustard
4 tbsp of tomate paste
2 tbsp of tamari sauce
350 grams/12 oz of firm tofu
2 tbsp of cornflour (cornstarch)
3/4 cup of breadcrumbs
1 cup of tomate sauce (coulis)
Heat the oven at 375 degrees and grease with oil spray a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.
Heat half the oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion for about 15 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from the pan and set aside.
Heat the remaining oil in the pan and toast the walnuts during 3 minutes, add the oats and cook for another 3 minutes while stirring.
Add the mushrooms, vegetable stock and garlic, reduce the heat and simmer until the stock is absorbed.
Add the carrots, mustard, tomate paste, tamari and previously set aside onions.
Purée the tofu and cornflour in a food processor until smooth and stir into the oat mixture along with the breadcrumbs and mix well.
Transfer the mixture into the loaf pan and spread the tomate sauce on top.
Bake for 40 minutes and leave to stand for 20 minutes before slicing.
