Meatloaf is a childhood memory many, including myself, would like to forget. It's a weird concept, a baked loaf of ground meat...But when sliced, I'm not too sure the difference from a well-done burger patty?! Ahhh, I digress. Trying to find a protein substitute for a turkey proved interesting. Then I remembered a chipotle black bean burgerI once had, and a light bulb went off, a meat-less loaf.
I tasked Terence and his expertise to tackle the loaf,and he made it look easy. He combined chickpeas and black beans as the base,making this dish high protein and fiber, which aid in your digestion,regulating blood sugar, and weight management. Terence chopped celery and carrots but kept things traditional in flavoring, adding fresh herbs, S&P,tomato paste, and Worcestershire sauce.
Internally I was freaking out because this was only the second time with this recipe, and the first one came out like a brick; this was the first time watching someone else work with MY RECIPE. Luckily, every time I looked up, I caught a glimpse of his shirt...
Terence plated everything and everyone's dishes,beautifully, and like the millennial bloggers we are, we fought lighting for an hour before eating any of it! Well worth the wait!
