  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Spanish onion, finely diced
  • 3 carrots, finely diced
  • 2 celery stalks, finely diced
  • 2 red bell peppers, finely diced
  • 2 cups mushrooms, finely diced
  • 1 pound grass-fed pastured ground beef
  • 8 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 organic pastured egg, such as Vital Farms
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons organic Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons unrefined sea salt
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup marinara sauce, such as Roa’s


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Add the onion, carrots, celery and peppers to a food processor and pulse until finely diced. You can also use a knife or mandolin. Add the mushrooms separately and pulse until finely diced. Careful not to over-pulse the mushrooms or you may have mushroom-puree.
  3. Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet, such as this 12″ skillet from Xtrema over medium-heat. When the skillet is hot, add the mushrooms, onions, carrots, celery and red bell pepper. Sauté for 7 to 8 minutes, or until vegetables are soft.
  4. Transfer the softened vegetables to a large mixing bowl and let cool down for approximately 10 minutes; stirring occasionally to release the steam.
  5. While the vegetables cool, in a small bowl, add the crushed garlic, egg, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, Italian seasoning, and salt and whisk until well combined. Add in the oats and mix again.
  6. Add the beef and garlic mixture to the vegetables in the large mixing bowl. Use your hands to mix ingredients together.
  7. Place the vegetable-meat mixture on the center of the parchment paper and shape into a large loaf, about 1-inch thick. healthy meatloaf recipe
