Vegan Meatloaf and Mashed Potato Cupcakes

Meatloaf and mashed potato cupcakes combine two tasty comfort foods into one delicious, hand-held package. Amazingly, these are vegan and totally plant-based. They can even be easily made without any oil at all.


  • 1 batch Easy Vegan Meat Substitute
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp  paprika
  • 1 tsp  mustard
  • 1 tsp  thyme
  • 1 tbsp basil
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/8 cup BBQ sauce
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • chives optional
  • vegan butter optional


  1. Make a batch of Easy Vegan Meat Substitute and add the spices. Mix it all well. 

  2. Then divide the meat substitute mixture into 9 to 10 even balls. Using your hand, flatten them into rounds then press into the bottom and up the sides of a cupcake tin. Use a nonstick cupcake tin or place a circle of parchment paper in the bottom of the tin to prevent sticking.

  3. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 15 minutes. 

  4. Add a scoop of mashed potatoes to each meatloaf crust.
