Tofu Loaf

I know tofu loaf is one of the things that makes normal people hate vegetarians but this loaf isn't squishy and it doesn't taste like tofu. I wasn't planning on liking this so much, but it really deserves a better name than "tofu loaf" and if you somehow end up with leftovers, it's even better fried the next day.

12 oz firm tofu, pressed
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/4 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup chopped carrots
1/3 cup ketchup
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
garlic powder, oregano, salt

Preheat the oven to 350. Saute the onions and carrots in a little bit of olive oil until they're soft. Mash the tofu in a large bowl and mix in the rest of the ingredients. Spoon the mixture into an oiled loaf pan and spread a thin layer of ketchup over the top. Bake for an hour.

I thought this would be good with my leftover barbecue sauce but I actually liked it better with plain old ketchup.
