Lean Pork and Broccoli Meatloaf

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.
