    SUBMITTED BY: Sherry Barber
    "'When I made this moist and tasty loaf for my vegetarian friends one Thanksgiving, they all took the recipe home with them,' says Sherry Barber from Whittier, California. 'To save time, I chop many of the ingredients a day ahead and store them in resealable plastic bags until baking day. I can't tell you how wonderful this loaf is."

    It seems a bit high fat, but that would be the nuts. I'm going to use pumpkin seeds since I don't have any sunflower seeds.

    I made a nut loaf once with cranberry sauce -- I think I got it from the BBC website.

    OK, I made the nut loaf last night. First thing -- it makes more than the average-sized loaf pan. I ended up with two loaves. Three cups of grated carrots is one too much. Put more nuts in instead.

    Otherwise, it's very tasty, but time-consuming to make. I ended up making my own breadcrumbs by toasting bread and cutting it into small pieces, but even without doing that, it took me a good hour and I chop fast. Worth it, tho. Veggie hubby loved it with Dijon whole grain mustard.
