For the Meatless Meatloaf:

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.

  6. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.

For the Glaze:

  1. Combine tomato paste, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, vegan Worcestershire sauce, and soy sauce. Set aside.
  2. Remove loaf from oven after 30 minutes. Spread glaze overtop. Bake an additional 25 minutes.
  3. Cool in pan for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from pan by gently lifting the sides of the parchment paper, slice, and serve.
