Hidden Veggie Meatloaf
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 cup shredded parsnip
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh herb blend (thyme, rosemary, and/or sage), minced
  • ½ yellow onion, minced
  • ½ cup cassava flour
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 ounces uncured bacon
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the beef with all of the ingredients except for the bacon. Using your hands, massage gently to combine thoroughly. Transfer the mixture to a loaf pan, using your hands to press it into the bottom and sides of the dish.
  3. Arrange a few slices of bacon across the top of the mixture. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until the bacon is browned and the loaf has reached an internal temperature of 150 degrees F. Set aside to fully cool and allow the meat to reabsorb any liquid released during cooking.
A food processor makes prepping the vegetables and herbs for this recipe a breeze. After using the shredder blade to process your carrots and parsnips, pulse the herbs and garlic with the processing blade to finely mince. Add the onions and pulse until the desired consistency is reached.
