1 cup mushrooms, finely diced
1 tsp minced garlic
1 cup fresh whole wheat bread crumbs
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp barbeque sauce or ketchup
Preheat oven to 375 F. Spray a medium, non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Add mushrooms, peppers, onions, and garlic. Cook and stir over medium heat until vegetables are tender, about five minutes. Add basil and cook 1 more minute. Remove from heat and set aside.
This loaf looks really fancy, and I thought for sure I would mess it up, but to my surprise it turned out great! It would be a great thing to serve to guests because it’s impressive and yet not too hard to make. It tastes great too and I like that it has lots of veggies hiding inside. The whole family ate this up.
Well, you know I would like this because I’m a yam fanatic. Again, no surprise here but the kids wouldn’t touch this. Tony loved them though. One of his favourite parts of Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner is when we have mashed yams, so he was excited to get to have this when it wasn’t a special occasion. I enjoyed how the tartness of the vinegar and the sweetness of the yams paired so beautifully together.
