Because of a medical condition I had to cut my fat intake to nearly nothing. Out of sheer boredom I created this "meatloaf" recipe. The medical problem is gone but we still make this a couple times a month because it is so good. Gimme Lean is vegetable protien, it just looks like hamburger. You can substitue ground turkey for the ground chicken.
- 1 lb ground chicken
- 14 ounces Lightlife Gimme Lean ground beef
- 2 cups chopped celery
- 1 cup chopped mushroom
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1⁄2 cup dried cranberries
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons fresh basil
- 1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash seasoning mix
- 1 tablespoon dehydrated garlic flakes
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup ketchup
- Mix everything but the ketchup with a mixer.
- Spray LARGE loaf pan with Pam.
- Pack mixture into loaf pan.
- Top with ketchup.
- Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
WOW! I was going to post my recipe for vegan meatloaf, but I thought I'd give you're a try and I'm glad a did. It's a bit different, but it was delish! I did make yours even leaner and cut out the chicken and replaced it with Lightlife's chick'n strips. (which I had to cut up into minced pieces, small enough to go with the mix) It sounds like a lot of effort, but it's not. Really. I do it all the time with my recipe for meatloaf. I also replaced the 2 eggs with a vegan egg substitute and eliminted the ketchup because ketchup is sugar and I don't "do" sugar (hence my name)- LOL! Instead I chopped up tomatos, which only takes seconds when you used that "Vidallia Onion Chopper". I'm so happy to find this recipe and I hope you've got more LEAN recipes. I'm going to go "raid" you recipe box now. Thank you for sharing!
