Meatloaf Beetloaf

I love meals that encompass everything.  A kitchen sink kind of meal  I almost feel that the best kind of meals should be the beginning of a joke:  A protein, carb and fat walked into a bar….

I obviously don’t have a punch line for that, but you can see that those three items work so perfectly together!!  If you have an ending to that potential joke, please feel free to finish it for me!

I also love a good meatloaf.  Especially one that I can eat.  So many of them have bread crumbs, some sort of ketchup or tomato base in them.  I like tomatoes, but they just don’t like me back.  Sooooo….I decided to make meatloaf Hillary style… a bissel of this and a bissel of that…

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs of grass fed ground beef
  • small white yam
  • small beet
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • half red onion
  • small watermelon radish or parsnip (root veggie that gives a little bite)
  • bag of baby kale or spinach
  • flax meal

With a mandolin or very sharp knife, cut, beet, yam, and radish or parsnip paper thin. Then, chop into very small pieces.

mix the baby kale, radish, beet and yam together in a bowl.

Chop up your garlic and onion.  Saute them in olive oil .  Then add your bowl of chopped up veggies.  Add some Teriyaki Coconut Aminos.  If you want to add a little spice, you can add some cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, whatever spices you like.

I like to keep it simple and let the aromas of the veggies help to flavor everything along with the teriyaki aminos and the garlic..

Once everything is sauteed and softened, put the cooked veg back in the bowl and this time, add the raw meat.  Put some gloves on and GET IN THERE AND REALLY MIX THE MEAT INTO THE VEGGIES!!!

Your arms will feel like you got a nice little workout.

Add about 2-3 tbsp of flax meal and mix in more.  This will help bind everything together.  I don’t use eggs so this will act as an egg replacement.

I used a big casserole corning ware baking dish for this .  It was perfect.

Sprinkle the top with some flax meal…it helps give a nice crispy top. I also sprinkle with a little smoked paprika. Cover with foil and bake at 400 for 40 mins. I baked it for an additional 10 mins uncovered.
