Gluten Free Meatloaf

This very healthy version of meatloaf is loaded with good stuff: quinoa, spinach and ground beef. With a small amount of ground beef you can make a bigger meal that can be saved in the freezer and take to the office for lunch time. It's also perfect for kids, as we're hiding tons of veggies inside :-)

Here's the list of ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 bunch of spinach, raw and finely chopped (or pureed in a food processor)
  • 1/2 cup quinoa flakes, cooked in 1 cup of chicken broth (it can be vegetable broth or beef. We always make our own... the processed ones usually have too much sodium)
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • Optional: shredded cheese
For the sauce:

Mix in a small bowl ketchup with hot sauce and brown sugar. Make sure you use gluten-free ketchup and hot sauce (if they don't state that they are gluten-free, assume they have gluten)

Place the meatloaf mix in an oven dish and cook it for approximately 1 hour in a 350 oven. Serve with fresh vegetables or save in the freezer, cut in pieces.
