Love and Soy Glazed Meatloaf

 
 

 
 
You guys!!!
​ I made a COOKING video! I am SO excited to add this feature to my recipes and what better recipe than my Soy Glazed Meatloaf!​This delicious creation came about kind of randomly. I never really made a meatloaf before and wanted to make something that didn’t have tons of tomato.(#acidrefluxproblems)I love Asian flavors of soy sauce, sesame, garlic and ginger…I have my Peanut Soy Glazed Meatball recipe and my Spicy Peanut Tofu and Green Beans, so this was a natural fit for my recipes!I based this recipe on those meatballs, with a few tweeks to make it simpler!
 

 

This is a super simple recipe and the zucchini adds SO much moisture so you aren’t left with a dry piece of meat.I top it with a sweet glaze that caramelizes in the oven, which adds a nice balance to the meatloaf. It’s perfect sweet and savory combo!You can use any lean ground meat of your choice. For this specific recipe, I use ground chicken but it would be good with lean turkey or beef. Just try to keep the percentage of lean higher than 90%. 

I found that baking it in a small baking pan allows the juices to infuse the meatloaf better, rather than spread out onto the pan.

​Let’s get to it!
