Quick Dinner- Meatless, Meatloaf, Whipped Potatoes & Asparagus- VEGAN and GLUTEN FREE

Updated: Jan 18

Ok, let me be honest, I am tired today. Some days I have all of the energy in the world and other days. Well, not so much! I guess that I can chalk that up to having four kids, husband, a ministry and two jobs. Or maybe that is just the way that I am built. Either way, sometimes it sucks. :)

So, the end of the day was approaching, and it occurred to me that I had nothing planned for dinner. I found myself in the kitchen once again trying to make "something out of nothing".

Can I tell you that it difficult to eat well when you haven't prepped...ever?! Alrighty then, meatless meatloaf it is!

Thankfully I had some beyond Beef (ground) in the fridge. Side note: if you haven't tried this you should. Having said that it has a good bit of sodium so eat it only every so often. I had peppers, an onion and gluten free breadcrumbs. Another side note: not all gluten free breads are created equal so trust me when I tell you that Aleias' are top notch.

Moving on, I had red potatoes, almond milk and yay me I had some asparagus that I forgot to make earlier in the week. I love asparagus but will pay for it later, if you know then you know.

All in and all out this dinner came together in 50 minutes and during that time I was able to get a jump start on the dishes, set up my positing schedule for the week to Facebook and Instagram and return a few emails. I would call this a win, how about you?

So, let's do this:

Meatless Meatloaf

2 packs of Beyond Burger Ground beef

1/2 Red Pepper- diced

1/2 Green Pepper- diced

1/2 yellow Onion-diced

1/2 Cup Ketchup- reserve half and put half in the mixture

3 Tablespoons low calorie brown sugar

3/4 Cup Gluten Free Breadcrumbs

1 Tablespoon Onion powder

2 Teaspoons Montreal Steak Seasoning

Basil Infused Olive Oil- I keep a ton of infused in stock because quite frankly, they rock really hard
