Cook 1 ½ cups Lundberg Olde World Pilaf with 3 cups of water according to package directions.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease all sides of a loaf pan.
Saute onion, bell pepper, spinach, mushrooms and garlic until soft in olive oil. Add red pepper flakes, salt, pepper and tomato juice. Cook just to warm the juice. Add the remaining ingredients, mix thoroughly. Form into a loaf and very firmly press into the prepared pan. If mixture is too loose, add more gluten free baking mix or add a bit more instant mashed potatoes. Top with sliced onions and ketchup. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes; remove foil and cook for 15 more minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes before slicing.
