Banana Curry Raisin meatloaf
This is my recipe for my Banana Curry Raisin Meatloaf. I got my inspiration for this recipe from food I remember having when I was in 7th grade. The banana muffin represents the first time I tried tofu. I put the tofu on a slice of banana bread for lunch and the other students thought I was weird. Sadly, I couldn't find banana bread in the supermarket and I was too lazy to make my own just for this meatloaf.
The raisins represent the time I dragged my friends and mom to supermarkets all across the county just for "baking raisins", which are just raisins soaked in water that are more expensive than plain raisins. At the time, I was obsessed with getting my mom to make pancakes by putting ingredients like fruits or baking chips into the batter. Sadly, this obsession ended when she got sick from pancreatic cancer in my senior year of high school. Now I know today that plain raisins are sufficient for baking food.
The curry powder represents the time I visited my dad's workplace, which is a local university that was later my alma mater. The university had an Asian restaurant on campus and that was the location of my first exposure to Indian food. I don't remember which type of curry I ate, except for two facts: 1. I didn't eat any white rice with the curry(they didn't have brown rice). 2. The curry was so spicy I had to drink 7 bottles of water to satisfy my burning mouth.
Moral of the story: Always have rice or some sort of carbohydrate with curry.
Anyways, enough reminiscing. Here is the recipe. You will need:
1/2 onion, sauteed in olive oil
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup raisins
1/2 cup of a crumbled up banana nut muffin(note: muffins vary in size but I used a pretty big muffin and only used half of the muffin itself)
1/2 cup of crumbled up Pizza Goldfish(approximately 100 goldfish)
1 tablespoon of curry powder
Pinch of salt
1 pound of extra firm tofu, chopped
