Quinoa Meat Loaf

In my home I have a few meat and potato guys. My two boys and of course my husband both love their hamburgers and meatloaf. I don’t use beef often but when I do I want to make sure that I am fixing options that are as healthy as possible. Here is a favorite meatloaf recipe that I prepare in my home when I am going the beef route.

Ingredients

1 cup of bell peppers , you choice
1 pound of Organic grass fed LEAN beef
2 cups of rinsed and precooked quinoa
3 eggs (this is your “glue”)
1/2 cup tomato paste
1/2 cup diced onion.
1tbs of minced garlic
2tbs mustard
1tbs agave

Sides
Boiled and mashed potatoes (season with sea salt and onion powder)
Fresh boiled corn

Directions
Mix meatloaf ingredients in a bowl and bake in a non stick pan or use a healthy oil to prevent sticking @ 325 degrees for 30-45 min. I use a muffin in which makes bake time closer to 30 min. I love to top it with cilantro.
