I made a delicious veggie filled meatloaf! If you have been following my blog for awhile you know that I love sneaking veggies into dishes, even though my boys love vegetables!
This recipe has 1 cup of carrots, 1 cup of Trader Joe's Harvest blend, 1 cup celery, 1/2 onion minced, 2 garlic cloves. Then I went and added another veggie to the side - Green beans!!!
Hubby was a HUGE fan of this meatloaf and said the flavor was unreal! :) Thanks babe!
1 - 1 1/2 lb ground beef
1 cup minced carrots
1 cup minced celery
1/2 onion, minced
1 - 2 cloves garlic
1/2 green bell pepper, minced
1 can of tomato sauce
1/4 cup of Almond Meal (optional)
Mince all the vegetables in the food processor and add to large mixing bowl. In a small bowl add eggs and mix until the yolk and white are mixed evenly. Add egg to the vegetables and also add the meat. Mix well. Add Almond Meal and seasonings and 3/4 tomato sauce. Mix well.
In a greased pan add the meatloaf to the pan and form the meat. Top the meatloaf with the remaining 1/4 tomato sauce.
Cover and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Take off cover and bake for another 20 minutes or until the meat is completely cooked.
Please note - I have a VERY hot and quick cooking oven. Times may need to be adjusted.
