Before trying to master vegan or vegetarian dishes, it's always a good idea to know what it should taste like at its best. Amy's Kitchen brand of vegan and vegetarian meals are a delectable option for frozen prepared dishes -- Mexican food, scrambled tofu, spinach lasagna, pot pies and more.

Many of the vegan and vegetarian recipes are similar to those found in restaurants that sell pasta, sauce and vegetable versions of dishes. However, specialized meat dishes can be far more difficult to find, and are usually more economical and taste better from home. That's definitely the case for vegetarian meatloaf, which is difficult to find in nonvegan restaurants, but reasonably easy to find in grocery stores.

Amy's veggie loaf, with a serving of mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables, tastes best when baked instead of in the microwave. Add a little black pepper and the soft, moist texture of the vegetarian meat loaf is good to go. Pay attention to flavor, moisture and form when it's cooked to completion.

Then try this recipe for Thanksgiving meat loaf any time of the year. Wild rice with mushroom gravy is a savory combination with the main course.
