My first contribution!

Made it this weekend. I liked it a lot but hubby didn't (he's a real picky eater). It's tasty, and healthy-got it from my AHA (American Heart Association) Low Fat, Low Cholesterol cookbook.

Cardamom-Spiced Meatloaf
2 tsp. butter
2 diced carrots
1 chopped onion
1 diced zucchini
2 crushed garlic cloves
2 tsp. ground cardamom
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 lbs. ground chuck
2 eggs
1 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup + 2 tsp. ketchup
1/3 cup yogurt
2 tsp. salt
Melt butter in skillet. Stir in onion, carrots, zucchini until tender (approx. 15 mins.). Add garlic for 1 min. more. Stir in cardamom, cumin, cinnamon, cayenne, pepper-cook for 30 secs. Set aside.
Preheat over to 375 F. Combine beef, eggs, bread crumbs, 1/2 cup ketchup, yogurt, salt, and veggies-blend well, do not over-mix.
Line pan w/foil. Brush remainder of ketchup on top and sides.
Bake 1.25 hours. Let stand 10 mins.
