Meatloaf in Tomato Sauce with Mashed Potato, Carrots and Beans. 

Preparation time 10 minutes

The meatloaf can be prepared and cooked well in advance. Just heat in the oven just before serving. You can use half pork and half beef. Other FODMAP friendly vegetables that go well with this dish are spinach or kale.


  • 500g mince beef
  • 75g gluten free breadcrumbs  
  • 100g tomato puree
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tin of tomatoes
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Pinch of dried thyme
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 900g potatoes
  • 1 tbsp lactose free yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 50ml lactose free milk
  • Knob of butter (25g)   
  • 300g green beans  
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 tbsp parsley finely chopped


Preheat the oven to 200C

To prepare the meatloaf. In a medium sized bowl add the mincemeat, parsley, egg, breadcrumbs, tomato puree, 1 tbsp yoghurt, a pinch of thyme, ½ tsp of salt and a pinch of pepper, mix together well. Take a medium sized oven tray and mould the mincemeat mixture into a loaf (aprox 20 x 8cm) on to the tray. Set to one side (The baking tray should not be too large so that the tomato sauce doesn’t spread out too much).

For the tomato sauce, mix together the tomatoes, sugar, a pinch of thyme and season to taste. Pour the tomatoes around the loaf and roast in the oven for 25 minutes.

While the meatloaf is cooking, peel and boil the potatoes. When the potatoes are ready, mash them well with milk and a knob of butter, season to taste.

5 minutes before the potatoes are ready slice and boil the carrots and the beans for about 5 minutes. Drain and season to taste.

Remove the meatloaf from the oven, cut into slices and serve with the tomato sauce, mash, carrots and beans.
