The Amazon strikes again with yet another protein rich meal idea! (Psst, it’s also incredibly convenient for meal prep!)
Today’s recipe was inspired by two lovely ladies I know from one of my favourite gyms – Angela and Helen from VA West London.
Angela made her version of vegetable meatballs a couple of months ago and I had wanted to try those since yet kept forgetting. And Helen made pork mince and broccoli meatballs just last week, reminding me of Angela’s recipe!
Since I’m flying to Greece on Wednesday, I had to start using up foods from the fridge and as I haven’t been home much, there’s quite a lot of food left. So as a result of throwing bits and pieces together I have this DELICIOUS lean pork & broccoli meatloaf recipe to share with you.
You bake it in a loaf tin and the loaf makes 4 servings. One serving: 249kcal, 32.2g protein, 11.8g fat, 2.5g carbs.
Here’s what you’ll need:
500g 5% pork mince
300g broccoli, chopped
2 tbsp. breadcrumbs
1 large garlic clove, crushed
2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
3/4 tsp dried thyme
3/4 tsp dried basil
40g Feta cheese
For a photo recipe, head to my Instagram page by clicking on the link to the right of this post. However, it’s all very simple!
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 don’t have any extra veg on the side, you’ve already consumed a portion of veg – 80g of broccoli. 🙂
I will be sure to try Angela’s vegetable meatballs recipe soon enough and will update you on the result – I know it’s going to be extremely yummy!
