Mouth-Watering Meatloaf

This meatloaf is clean, simple, delicious and excellent as left overs. I've simply adapted Ina Garten's amazing meatloaf recipe to be gluten free and cleaner.

What you need: 

  • 2 smallish white onions, finely chopped
  • 2 lbs ground turkey (I love turkey but you could totally go with beef)
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup quick oats 
  • 1 tsp thyme (I use dried  if fresh isn’t available and crush in between my fingers to make it more potent!)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos 
  • 1/3 cup chicken, beef or vegetable broth
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil (or oil of your choice) 

What you do:

  1. Pre-heat oben to 325 degrees 
  2. Heat the olive oil on medium heat
  3. Saute onions for a few minutes until they turn a bit translucent but not brown
  4. Add the thyme, salt, ground pepper, coconut aminos and broth-stir together.
  5. Remove from the heat to let cool a bit
  6. In a separate bowl, mix the meat, oatmeal and eggs. I prefer to use my hands, but a fork will do too. Add the onion mixture.
  7. On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, form a 2 inch high “loaf”...mine usually looks pretty interesting...but it doesn’t matter 🤗.
  8. Bake for 1 hour or until it’s cooked...I also recommend putting a oven safe pan of water in your oven when you bake it it doesn’t dry out!

These freeze well and are delicious after a minute in the microwave.
