Meat loaf with vegetables

Meat loaf prepared with ground beef along with red bell pepper, potatoes, carrots, celery, whole spices and hint of garam masala, a version which is very close to cutlet with an addition of vegetables and less grease. Complimented with gently broiled asparagus, it was an amazing meal, an all season one for us. Since we love little bit of that inevitable crispier texture on the edges, I broiled it again for the second round just for few minutes. Save few slices for the next day to fix few sandwiches as well. It sure is a keeper and a crowd pleaser as well. Here’s the recipe.



1 lb. Lean ground beef
1 cup bread crumbs
¼ cups each minced potatoes, red bell pepper, carrots and celery
2 tbsp minced & roasted ginger & garlic
1 egg, lightly beaten
½ cup parmesan cheese

2 tbsp dried onion

1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp ground pepper

1 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

¼ cup chopped parsley
1 tsp lemon juice
Salt to taste

Combine together everything and shape into loaf in a loaf pan. Press firmly yet gently. Bake for about 50 minutes in 375°oven. Broil an additional 5 minutes to get the crispier texture. Enjoy!
