Tuesday Recipes – Protein load sweet and savory

12. February 2013 by swissfitchick

Hey friends!

Today is the recipe party continuing. I’ve got a 2 course meal for you🙂

As announced in yesterday’s post I did some baking & cooking on the weekend (don’t I always?) and this time I had no fails at all. Let’s start with the first savory course just to be followed by a nice dessert/snack.

This one is PERFECT for meal prep and to take on the go. It’s not a big thing to cook it and once you have it, you can enjoy it all week, hot, cold, on a plate or on hand🙂 You can also freeze it and warm up. It is loaded with good stuff and very well balanced. Fact is, I don’t enjoy ANY food that might be balanced or healthy but isn’t tasty. So I made this VERY tasty.

Chicken-Broccoli-Meatloaf 

Ingredients: 

150g ground boneless/skinless chicken, cooked

4 eggwhites

50g buckwheat flour or oat flour (process 50g oats)

2 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional – I love it)

150g broccoli, raw, chopped

1 tbsp lemon pepper

1 tsp salt

1,5 tbsp chives

1 tbsp oregano

1 tsp ginger

1 tsp baking powder

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 200°C

Mix the spices, yeast and the flour in a large bowl.

In a smaller bowl, whisk eggwhites until fluffy.

Add eggwhites to flour/spice mix.

Add remaining ingredients and stir well with a spoon until well combined.

Spread a square baking form with a baking sheet.

Pour the meatloaf mix in to the form.

Bake on low-middle level by 200°C for 30 minutes.

Let cool and enjoy.
