Hidden Veggie Meatloaf

I know that I’m not the only one who struggles to get enough veggies into my child’s diet, and I know that many of us are sneaky in how we hide them in certain dishes.  I use this meatloaf recipe to hide Zucchini/Courgettes, but in the past I’ve also hidden carrots, parsnips, and golden beets (and they weren’t discovered) so switch out the veggie of your choice!

Using the veggies actually acts as a binder and brings a lightness to the meatloaf that typically is provided by eggs or breadcrumbs.  This Gluten Free, AIP Compliant Meatloaf has none of that LOL!
