Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven for 400°F.
  2. In a large pan, heat up a little oil. Add in mushrooms, leek, carrot, celery and garlic cloves. Cook them until all the liquid is gone from the mushrooms.
  3. Meanwhile, in your food processor, purée the walnuts so they are dust. Add the garbanzo beans and purée them too.
  4. In a mixing bowl add your sautéed vegetables, walnut and bean mixture  along with all remaining ingredients. Using a potato masher mix everything up so it is well integrated.
  5. Oil a bread loaf pan and put your mushroom loaf mixture into the pan smoothing it out on top. Bake for 40-45 minutes.
  6. While your mushroom loaf is cooking, you can prepare the balsamic tomato chutney. First, heat up about 2 tablespoon of oil in a pan. Add in your onions and cook them on a medium heat until they are nicely caramelized. Add in tomatoes, balsamic, salt and pepper.
  7. When the mushroom loaf is done, it should be firm in the middle. Let it sit for about 5 minutes before cutting it. Once sliced, top with the balsamic tomato chutney and serve.
