Healthy Meatloaf with mozzarella, balsamic tomato onions and green garlic beans

This is a quick and easy midweek dinner that is so satisfying.

Delicious and nutritious, all in one meal.

Serves 2


  • 1 onion, sliced
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 50 g tomato puree
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 200 g lean beef mince
  • 1 tsp dried Italian herbs
  • 30 g fine breadcrumbs
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 60 g mozzarella (small balls or grated)
  • 200 g green beans, cleaned and chopped
  • Grilled potatoes with fresh herbs (optional)
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Heat the oven to 180 °C.
  2. In a pan, heat a little bit of olive oil and add the onion. Fry until soft. Add the tomato puree, balsamic vinegar and sugar and stir. Cook for 2 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mix together the mince, herbs, 1 clove crushed garlic and breadcrumbs. Season with salt and pepper. Fold the mince mixture into the form of a flat round bread.
  4. Heat a little bit of olive oil in an ovenproof pan. Add the “meatloaf” and fry on both sides until browned. About 2 minutes on each side.
  5. In the meantime, heat up a 2/3 cup of water in a small pot. Add the green beans and steam-boil for 5 minutes. Remove the water and place back on low heat. Add 1 Tbsp of olive oil and 1 clove crushed garlic. Remove from heat and keep warm until serving.
  6. Top the meatloaf with the tomato onion mixture and lastly with mozzarella. If using par-boiled potatoes, place the potatoes around the meatloaf in the pan and sprinkle with herbs, sea salt and black pepper.
  7. Bake in the oven for about 10-15 minutes until mozzarella has melted. We like to use the top grill setting.
  8. Remove from the oven and serve with green garlic beans. Season with extra salt and pepper if needed.
