Spiced Meatloaf

Serves about 8 hungry guests
Preparation Time about 20 minutes
Cooking Time about 65 minutes


5 cloves of garlic
2 organic (if possible) celery stalks, coarsely chopped
1 small onion, coarsely chopped
1 cup mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 tablespoons chia seeds, soaked in 1/2 cup water for 20 minutes
1/2 tablespoon chilli powder
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon plus a pinch ground cinnamon, divided
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon sea salt
1kg of ground organic turkey or chicken (preferably dark meat)
1/3 cup tomato paste
1 medium spring onion, finely chopped
juice from 1/4 organic orange, plus zest of half the orange

Preheat the oven to 190°c.  Place a rack in the centre.

In a food processor, mix the garlic, celery, onion and mushrooms until very finely chopped. In a large bowl, combine the vegetables with the coconut flour, chia seeds, chilli powder, oregano, paprika, cayenne, nutmeg, salt, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and pepper. Add the turkey or chicken and, using your hands, mix until combined; do not over mix, or the meatloaf will become dense.

Gently pat the meat into a loaf, and place in a 20cm by 10cm loaf pan. Place the pan on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 50 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small pan, heat the tomato paste and spring onions over medium heat.  Add remaining cinnamon and stir to combine. Gently simmer on medium – low heat for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in orange juice and zest.

Brush the top of the loaf with the tomato mixture after 50 minutes; continue cooking for about 10 more minutes.

Remove from the oven; let rest for 10 minutes.
