We believe one of the best ways to eat vegetables is to sneak👀 them into your dish. If you have any picky eaters, try this recipe by @realsimplegood to make sure everyone gets a healthy dose of veggies!
2 cups mushrooms
1 cup cauliflower florets (or riced cauliflower)
1 leek (or onion)
1 medium sized carrot
1 medium sized parsnip (or carrot)
2 Tbsp avocado oil (or ghee)
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp rosemary, freshly chopped
2 Tbsp oregano, freshly chopped
1/2 cup parsley, freshly chopped
2 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork
1/2 cup Whole30 ketchup (optional topping)
If using a food processor, use the grating attachment.
Put the mushrooms, cauliflower, leek, carrot, and parsnip through the food processor. Otherwise, if you are doing it by hand, dice the mushrooms and leek and grate the cauliflower, carrot, and parsnip with a box grater.
Preheat your oven to 400° Fahrenheit.
In a large skillet, heat the avocado oil over medium heat and add in the vegetables.
Sauté the vegetables for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in the garlic at the end with a couple of minutes left. Set aside to cool.
In a large bowl, mix the eggs with rosemary, oregano, parsley, and salt and pepper.
Add the meat and cooled vegetables to the bowl. Mix gently with your hands until all of the ingredients are well incorporated.
Transfer the mixture to a 9 x 5 loaf pan or 8 x 8 baking pan (it should fit either). The loaf pan will be rounded over the top and the square pan will be even and flat. Make sure to spread it evenly into the corners.
If you are using a 8 x 8 pan, bake for one hour. If using a loaf pan, bake for 60-70 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°.
Remove from oven and carefully pour off the liquid from the pan. If you are topping with ketchup, spread ketchup over the top and put it back in the oven for a few minutes to allow the ketchup to warm up.
Allow the meatloaf to cool off for a few minutes. Slice into pieces and serve.
