How to

  3. In a large bowl combine the mince, apple, onion, garlic, parsley and spices, get your hands in there and mix everything together until it is well combined.
  4. Grease your loaf pan with a little coconut or olive oil.
  5. Place your mixture into a loaf pan and set aside.
  6. In another bowl mix the tomato paste, vinegar and honey into a sauce, spoon this over the top of your loaf – it doesn’t need to be a thick layer just make sure all of it is covered.
  7. Place the meatloaf in the over for 30 – 40 minutes, it will shrink away from the edges.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool a little before slicing and serving.
