  • 2 cups cooked bulgur
  • 1-½ cups whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1-½ cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup fire roasted tomatoes with juice
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 celery sticks, diced
  • ¾ cup carrots, diced
  • ½ green bell pepper, diced
  • ¼ cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • ¼ tsp dried sage
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • Salt, to taste
  • ½ cup ketchup plus enough to top loaf before baking


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 x 13 inch baking dish or deeper loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • 2. Combine all ingredients in large bowl. Press into prepared dish. Poke holes over the top with finger, then spread a thin layer of ketchup over the top with spatula.
  • 3. Bake for 60 minutes. If desired, broil for 5 minutes at the end to brown the top.

Cooking Tips

  • 1. You can use regular tomatoes instead of fire roasted.
  • 2. Make your own bread crumbs using 2 to 3 slices of toasted bread. Process in a food processor to desired crumb size.
  • 3. Substitute the bulgur with buckwheat or quinoa for a gluten-free version.
  • 4. Look for no or low-sugar ketchup.
  • 5. Instead of ketchup try no or low-sugar BBQ sauce.
  • 6. Instead of chopping walnuts by hand, you can process them in a food processor.
