White Bean Sunflower & Pumpkin Seed Veggie Loaf

2c-cooked cannellini or other white beans

1 1/2c cooked brown rice

3 slices whole grain or GF toast- made into breadcrumbs or 1-1/2c loosely packed breadcrumbs

1 medium onion, minced

1/4c nutritional yeast

1/4c ketchup

1/4c extra virgin olive oil

1/2c pumpkin seeds

1/4c sunflower seeds

1/8t-1/4t-cayenne pepper or chipotle powder (I LOVE Chipotle Powder)

1/4t ground black pepper

1/2t turmeric

1/2t salt

up to 1/4c water

Topping:

3T ketchup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a large bowl, combine the white beans, rice, breadcrumbs, onions, yeast, ketchup, oil, seeds, salt, red and black pepper. Mix with a wooden spoon or clean hands until all ingredients are well incorporated. If the mixture is too moist, add more breadcrumbs- also give the breadcrumbs a chance to soak up some of the moisture.

Pour out the mixture into a lightly oiled loaf pan. With the back of a wooden spoon, fill out the pan. Top the loaf with the remaining ketchup.

Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes.

Remove the foil and bake for another 10-15 minutes.

Serve with smashed potatoes and sautéed greens; broccoli or kale.
