natvia meatloaf

Meatloaf has always been a big favourite growing up. I remember my sister whom I have 8 years difference with, used to make it for us.  She had been inspired by a recipe card collection she used to have.  I have taken the humble meatloaf and made a “healthier” version to be enjoyed be all and not on just special occasions. I hope you enjoy this version as much as we did.  (Note:  This recipe is a double batch. Freeze half and have it ready for another time!)

 

INGREDIENTS

Glaze:

  • 1 1/2 cups Fountain Toamto Sauce (with NATVIA)
  • 1 1/2 cups  Fountain BBQ Sauce (with NATVIA)
  • 2 tblsp Vegemite (or promite or MISO paste)
  • 2 tblsp raw honey or 6 sticks NATVIA

METHOD

1. Pre-heat oven to 190 degrees celsius.

2. Combine all the glaze ingredients in a small pot and stir with a spoon until well combined with a spoon. Set aside.

3. In a pan on medium heat add oil and soften onions for 2 minutes. Add the carrots and capsicum and stir occasionally until softened. Add herbs and grated pumpkin and zucchini until well combined and reduced. This will take a few minutes. Set aside to cool.

4. When mixture has cooled down add it to a bowl. Add mince and lightly whisked eggs and breadcrumbs. Knead in all ingredients together for a few minutes until well combined.

5. In a large baking tray with high sides place “logs” of meatloaves roughly 15 cm wide and 20cm long (or smaller if you wish).

6. Add 3/4 of the glaze on the loaves and bake covered 20 minutes.

7. Uncover and spoon on half the remaining glaze and place in the oven for a further 20 minutes.

8. Spoon on the remaining glaze and cook for a further 15 minutes.

Enjoy:)
