    I would like to try this recipe, however I am trying to stay away from soy products. Are there any good substitutions for the soy flour and soy sauce, i.e. coconut flour and ? for the soy sauce?

  2. Diana Herrington March 8, 2013 at 11:13 am

    Doris, thank you for asking. I just adjusted the recipe for soy free. When I first developed this recipe I was OK with soy now I do not use it either.

    Is the rice already cooked? Is the amount for raw or cooked?
    I remember when it was a joke to mention nut loaf when I first became vegetarian in the late 70’s.

    Paula, thank you for that. I adjusted the recipe to say that it is cooked rice. Yes us nut loaf nuts. 🙂
