vegan nut roast?

i am trying to find a recipe that doesn't contain any bread, or breadcrumbs (or wheat or rhy etc), or mushrooms. seems that all vegan roast varieties are based on these ingredients. is there a recipe that would work for my needs? many thanks for any ideas.

substitution for agar powder?

i'm baking the "pumpkin pie with glazed pecans" out of the voluptuous vegan tomorrow. . . but i haven't been able to find agar powder in town, and it's too late to order it online. anyone have any idea what i can substitute for a teaspoon of agar powder?

the recipe also calls for 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder, which i have, and i think the two ingredients work together to replace an egg. but i just moved and my box of egg replacer got thrown out.

i made it last year without agar powder, but i can't for the life of me remember what i used.

any ideas?
