We made this delicious vegetarian Vietnamese steamed meatloaf yesterday because we would like to have vegetarian dishes once or twice a month. OH WOW! The meatless meatloaf came out really good; it looked and smelled really delicious and tasty. This vegan meatloaf version is comparable to our Steamed Egg Meatloaf (which is non-vegetarian). In this recipe, we only used firm tofu and various types of vegetable; we consider this dish the healthiest vegan food since we did not add any sugar in the loaf so it has the natural sweetness from the veggies.

Recipe Notes

In this recipe, we should use the firm or extra firm tofu only. "Don't" use the soft or medium tofu since it will release a lot of water during steaming process; that makes our meatloaf mushy.
