Meatloaf and Mash

Dinner last night was delicious. I made Meatloaf with Creamy Roast Pumpkin / Cauliflower Mash and Steamed Broccoli Florets.

I began by browning 100g diced streaky bacon in loads of grass fed butter. Next I added one finely chopped large brown onion and sautéed until translucent. One large grated carrot went in next along with 1 tablespoon of whole grain mustard, mixed herbs, and a good screw of black pepper.

Once all that had cooked down nice I set it aside to cool while I prepared my pumpkin.

One quarter of organic kent pumpkin peeled, chopped & sprinkled with salt, pepper & smoked paprika and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.

I placed it on a lined tray and into a 200°C oven to roast.

I then took my cooled ingredients for the meat loaf and combined them with 1 egg, 1kg organic beef mince and 1/2 cup of almond meal. Once combined this went into a loaf tin and in the oven with the pumpkin.

When the meat loaf was nearly finished I removed the pumpkin from the oven, boiled a full head of cauliflower until tender, drained and then mashed the two together with my stick blender and loads more butter.

The mash was so super creamy no sauce was required. Yummy!!!
