Organic Keto Meatloaf with mashed cauliflower and green beans

A comfort food meal on a chilly day the whole family will like. Well at least my picky boys (husband and toddler) like! A thank you to Mark Sisson at Marks Daily Apple for the base for this meal. We’re not all Keto, but we like variations on simple healthy food. The meatloaf uses my own version of tomato topping with stevia rather than ketchup or primal kitchen commercial sauces.

 2.5 lbs organic beef (85/15)
 3 eggs, large
 3 tablespoons organic coconut flour
 1.5 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce low sodium
 Pink salt, dash
 Black pepper, dash
 2 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder
 1 tablespoon dried parsley, 1 tsp dried oregano

 6 oz organic tomato paste
 ~1/2 c water
 1 tsp organic apple cider vinegar
Dried parsley dash
 4 packets organic stevia powder (I used NOW brand organic stevia)

Mix beef, Worcestershire sauce, eggs, coconut flour and spices. Mash until well blended. Press into oiled loaf pans or Pyrex. Mix tomato sauce topping until it is the consistency of ketchup. You can substitute organic ketchup or add blackstrap molasses or dates to your homade sauce. I only used stevia since I had extra packets on hand. Pour tomato sauce over meatloaf. Bake at 350 for 1.5-2 hours or until finished (our oven doesn’t work well so your cooking time may be much less than ours. Check after an hour). I cut thin slices so about 16 slices total.

Mashed cauliflower (my lazy way):
 10oz frozen organic riced cauliflower
 Pink salt and pepper to taste
 1 tablespoon organic butter
 Pinch dried parsley (or dried dill)
 ~ 2 tablespoons water to steam cauliflower (reserve liquid)
Makes 2 1/2 c servings

Steam cauliflower. Once very tender add butter (or buttery coconut oil if non dairy), salt, and pepper. Mash. I used the cooking water rather than cream or milk.

Greens beans are just steamed with olive oil.

I hope you enjoy. There are a lot of similar recipes out there. I don’t generally keep things like almond flour or specialty sauces on hand. Personally I’d just eat plain cooked beef and steamed cauliflower. The whole mashing and baking in shapes with sauces seems like too much effort to me. Food is fuel. But when feeding a toddler ....
