Need a dish to complete your holiday menu? Look no further! Our Mushroom-Seed Loaf is made with a variety of good-for-you ingredients, ranging from mushrooms and onions to carrots and celery. It also doesn't hurt that it's full of decadent flavor and irresistible texture.

Pro tip: if you’d rather have mini loaves, use a muffin tin.
