Veggie Loaf

As I sit munching on my second veggie-loaf sandwich of the evening, I realize I must try to remember what I put in this amazing stuff, in hopes of recreating it someday.

Amounts will be vague. I had just cooked a batch of a dozen onions until they were just caramelized, and tonged them into various foodstuffs.

Pre-cooking:

3 medium onions, sliced, cooked just until caramelized
1 head garlic, chopped, also caramelized
3 cups cooked rice

Blade-process in batches:

2 red bell peppers, chopped
1 bunch fresh spinach, chopped
3 carrots, grated
6 leaves fresh basil
1 can garbanzo beans, drained
1 can roasted tomatoes, drained
1 package extra-firm silken tofu
About half the onions
Garlic

Put everything in a huge-ass bowl. Stir in:

½ cup cheddar cheese, grated
4 beaten eggs
Cooked rice
Remaining onion

Spice generously with:

Salt
Pepper
Cumin
Oregano
Tarragon
Thyme
Sage

Bake in a 350° oven for about an hour. I used a pan that produces six mini-loaves, and had a little mix left over. While the loaves hold together more or less, it is more like a pate than a loaf. I wrapped each loaf in wax paper, and they are very handy for making sandwiches.
