Does anyone have a recipe for vegetarian "meat" loaf?

I am looking for a good vegetarian "meat" loaf recipe. However, I do have some requirements. No tofu, real eggs, no prepackaged mock meat, and preferably, no ketchup.
If you have a recipe that is all veggies, beans, or lentils that does not use the "mock meat" bought at the grocery store and uses real eggs, please let me know.

  • Add salt to water and boil in a saucepan. Add lentils and simmer covered 25-30 minutes, until lentils are soft and most of water is evaporated. Remove from heat. Drain and partially mash lentils. Scrape into mixing bowl and allow to cool slightly. Stir in onion, oats and cheese until mixed. Add egg, tomato sauce, garlic, basil, parsley, seasoning salt and pepper. Mix well. Spoon into loaf pan that has been generously sprayed with Pam (non-stick cooking spray) or well-greased. Smooth top with back of spoon. Bake at 350 degrees for 30- 45 minutes until top of loaf is dry, firm and golden brown. Cool in pan on rack for about 10 minutes. Run a sharp knife around edges of pan then turn out loaf onto serving platter.
