Lean Pork and Broccoli Meatloaf

The Amazon strikes again with yet another protein rich meal idea. This delicious recipe was inspired by two friends and was born as a result of throwing bits and pieces together to clear the fridge before flying on holiday many moons ago. It is also incredibly convenient for meal prep as you bake it in a loaf tin and the loaf makes 4 servings. You can multiply the ingredients twice for two loaves if you have a bigger family or wish to cook for days in advance. One serving: 249kcal, 32.2g protein, 11.8g fat, 2.5g carbs.

INGREDIENTS:IMG_9451

  • 500g 5% pork mince
  • 300g broccoli, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp. breadcrumbs
  • 1 large garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 3/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 3/4 tsp dried basil
  • 25g Parmesan
  • 40g Feta cheese

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat the oven to 200C. Mix together all ingredients and place inside the loaf tin, smoothing it out with a spoon. Grate a nice even surface of Parmesan on top and crumble Feta on top of that. Cook the meatloaf for 45 minutes and cut into 4 when done.

The great thing about this meatloaf is that even if you decide to omit any extra veg on the side, you’ve already consumed a portion of veg – 80g of broccoli.  Although I do hope you will ensure you have generous helpings of steamed or grilled veg with this dish – we should be consuming at least 5-7 servings of vegetables a day for optimal health.
