    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Lightly grease a 23x13cm loaf tin.
    2. Heat the olive oil in a large frypan over medium heat. Stir in the mushrooms, onions, and capsicums; cook until the onion is transparent, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle sage over the vegetables, and cook until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes more. Transfer vegetables to a large mixing bowl.
    3. Stir the rice, walnuts, soup mix, oat bran, wheatgerm, egg whites, Worcestershire sauce and mustard into the mushroom mixture until thoroughly blended. Spoon into prepared loaf tin, pressing down mixture with a spatula to flatten top.
    4. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing.

    My boyfriend and I were happily surprised (we are NOT vegetarians). I did some changes, though. It calls for a crazy amount of rice. I used maybe a cup of cooked rice. AND it doesn't tell you when to add the rice. I blended everything but the rice in my food processor. Then I mixed the rice by hand in a bowl. Also, I used one whole egg and one egg white. I served it on top of mashed potatoes, topped it with onion gravy and french fried onions and mushrooms. It was awesome.  -  19 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is good but be aware that Worcestershire sauce is tradionally made from anchovies and therefore NOT vegetarian... some may not care, but I believe there are veggie worchestershire sauces out there too.  -  25 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is really good,I did change a few things. I left out the package of onion soup as all the ones at the store were either NOT Vegetarian or they had MSG in them. Also I used Vegetarian Worcestershire sauce. I added onion powder,garlic powder,black pepper and 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour. It's a keeper!
