  • Garlic- 2 Cloves
  • Parsley- 1/4 oz
  • Green Beans- 12 oz
  • Yellow Onion- 1
  • Panko Breadcrumbs- 1/2 cup
  • Ground Beef- 16 oz
  • Balsamic Vinegar- 2 tbsp
  • Ketchup- 4 tbsp
  • Sweet Potato- 2
  • Honey- 4 tsp
  • Sliced Almonds- 1 oz


  1. PREHEAT AND PREP Wash and dry all produce. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mince or grate 1 clove garlic (we sent more). Chop parsley. Trim green beans. Halve and peel onion. Using a box grater, grate one half into a large bowl (use the rest as you like).
  2. BAKE MEATLOAVES Add garlic, parsley, panko, beef, and ½ tsp salt to bowl with onion. Season with pepper, then mix with hands to combine. Form into two 1-inch-tall loaves and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet. In a small bowl, mix 1 TBSP balsamic vinegar (we sent more) and ketchup, then brush onto meatloaves. Bake in oven until no longer pink in center, about 25 minutes total.

3 BOIL SWEET POTATO Peel and chop sweet potato into ½-inch cubes. Place in a large pot with a pinch of salt and enough water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil and cook until easily pierced by a knife, about 10 minutes. Drain and return to pot.

4.  ROAST GREEN BEANS After meatloaves have baked 10 minutes, remove from oven. Toss green beans on same baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. (TIP: Use tongs to avoid burning your hands.) Return to oven and bake until meatloaves are cooked

through and green beans are slightly browned, about 15 minutes more.

5 MASH SWEET POTATO Mash sweet potato in pot with a fork or potato masher until mostly

smooth. (TIP: If potatoes have cooled, quickly reheat over medium-low heat.) Add 1 TBSP butter and honey. Continue mashing to melt butter and combine. Season generously with salt and pepper

6 FINISH AND SERVE When meatloaves and green beans are done, sprinkle almonds over

green beans and toss to combine. Divide meatloaves between plates and serve with sweet potato mash and green beans on the side
