Servings: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes


  • 1 lb cremini mushrooms, (also called baby bela)
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, minced
  • 6-8 cloves garlic
  • 1 Tbs lemon
  • 1 Tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 16 ounces ground beef or ground buffalo
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2/3 cup strained tomatoes, (Pomi brand)
  • 2 Tbs honey


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Mince the onions and garlic with a food processor and set aside in a bowl.
  • Clean the mushrooms with water and dry off well with paper towels.
  • Mince the mushrooms with a food processor (this will probably need to be done in batches) and set aside in a bowl.
  • Put oil in a large saute pan and heat over medium-high heat.
  • Add the minced onion and garlic and cook for 3 1/2- 4 minutes while stirring regularly.
  • Add the minced mushrooms and let them cook 7 minutes OR until the liquid evaporates. (stir them maybe three times during this time)
  • Add the lemon juice and apple cider vinegar, stir, and cook for another 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Mix the chopped thyme in.
  • Add the salt and pepper.
  • Let the mushroom mixture cool a bit.
  • In the pan or in a big bowl, mix the mushroom mixture, almond meal, ground beef, and large egg until combined.
  • Place in a 8x8 pan or in a loaf pan/tin and let cook at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
  • While the meatloaf is in the oven, mix the strained tomatoes and honey together in a small bowl.
  • Once the 20 minutes is up, remove the meatloaf from the oven and brush the top of the loaf with the strained tomato/honey mixture.
  • Put the meatloaf back in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Set the oven to broil and broil the meatloaf for 3- 5 minutes or until the top is browned and crisp. After 3 minutes, check on it regularly to make sure it doesn't burn.
  • Remove from the oven and enjoy :)
  • If there is any excess liquid from the meat in the pan, tilt the pan over the sink to remove it or use a spoon to collect it.
