Hungering for meatloaf


Dear Hungering,

Thank you so much for asking for the recipe for my venison meatloaf. Although this is not a plant question, I am delighted to answer this for you! First let me tell you that doing the Healthy Roots challenge has changed a number of things for me, in terms of food. I now relish the taste of food in its natural state without salt and seasoning. This is my recipe.  You are free to season it as you choose to, however it was very delicious just the way I made it.


1.5–2lb ground venison

2 duck eggs

2 carrots, grated

1 cup spinach, finely chopped

1 onion, finely chopped

1 clove garlic, minced well

1 cup mushrooms, finely chopped

1 apple, cored and sliced (peel on)

1 tablespoon duck fat


In a large bowl, combine venison, garlic, onion, carrots, mushrooms, 3/4 of the spinach and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for one hour. This allows the garlic and onion to flavour the meat. After an hour, add the two duck eggs and mix with your hands till well combined. Form to a loaf shape on a cookie sheet. Spread half of the duck fat on top of the meatloaf. Sprinkle with remaining spinach and top with sliced apple. Dab the remainder of the duck fat on the apple slices. Do not cover. Place in the oven at 350F and bake for 30-40 minutes.
