Wash produce before use


Assemble the meatloaf

Heat the oven to 425°F.

  • Trim the round end from 1 zucchini. Holding the zucchini by the stem end and using the large holes of a box grater, coarsely grate enough zucchini to measure ½ cup [1 cup]. Set aside the remaining zucchini for cooking with the snap peas.
  • Scrub or peel the carrot. Using the large holes of a box grater, coarsely grate the carrot.
  • Lightly grease a sheet pan with oil.
  • Cut a small corner from the ground meat packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. 

In a large bowl, using a fork or whisk, mix together the grated zucchini, carrot, meatloaf spice blend, and flaxseed meal and season generously with salt and pepper. Add the ground meat and mix until just combined. Transfer the meat mixture to the prepared sheet pan and form into a 6-by-2-inch loaf [2 loaves]. Spread the meatloaf glaze evenly on top of the meatloaf.


Bake the meatloaf

Bake, rotating the pan halfway through, until the meatloaf is browned on top and cooked through, 15 to 18 minutes; a metal knife inserted into the center for 30 seconds should come out hot to the touch, or an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should register 160°F. When the meatloaf is almost done, prepare the rest of the meal.


Make the lemon-dill aioli

In a small bowl, stir together the lemon aioli, dill, and 2 to 3 teaspoons water; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Prep and cook the zucchini and snap peas

  • Cut the remaining zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ½-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Trim the ends from the snap or snow peas if needed.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the zucchini and peas, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini is crisp-tender and the peas are lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Slice the meatloaf and transfer to individual plates. Arrange the zucchini and snap peas alongside, drizzle with the lemon-dill aioli, and serve.
