According to many articles, we are supposed to limit the meat we ingest (especially beef) and have more fish and fowl as well as lots of vegetables, right? My uncle found this recipe in Dr. Mark Hyman’s book The Blood Sugar Solution and I enjoyed the taste and texture so much that I went home and made it myself.
Now the cooking time is short, so the onions were on the raw side which my mother was unable to digest; the second time I made it, I sautéed the onion to slightly precook them and then added them to the rest of the ingredients and cooked as directed. This took care of the problem.
**this recipe is NOT a pretend-it’s-beef meatloaf. but it does have a nice density to it.
**this spinach is NOT hidden for the people in your life that may need their veggies hidden away.
