Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away? If you’re “that person” with all the special food limitations, this loaf is for you. It’s freaking fantastic and I’m not even doing it justice with that description. It will make you lose your loafing mind it’s so good.
Maybe…it’s the best-tasting thing I’ve ever posted on this blog….maybe….
It’s also the ideal thing to make in advance of a holiday shindig and then just heat up before serving. It’s awesome to bring to someone’s house if you’re that “I don’t eat turkey” person.
- It’s #NSNG
- It’s paleo
- It’s vegetarian
- It's ketotarian (yes, that's now a thing)
- It’s packed with healthy fats and protein
- It’s easy to make
- It’s the best thing ever.
Happy Thanksgiving guys!!

I don't eat Turkey either and it looks like you have a lot of veggies jammed in there so it is perfect!
Oh, it tastes just like turkey and stuffing!! I'm making more today to bring to TG. the last batch didn't last long!
This is like a fabulous frittata in loaf form and even better. I love the addition of cashews. So unusual yet so appealing. I hope you had a happy turkey day.
Sounds great, thank you! Do you have nutritional info per serving? Calories?
We need a good replacement for Almond flour.
