  • Step 3/4

    Place meatloaf on top of the vegetables in the baking dish. Bake in the oven for approx. 30–40 min., or until the meat is cooked and no longer pink. Meanwhile, add cauliflower and potatoes to a large pot, cover with water and cook with the lid on for approx. 20–25 min. until tender. Heat the remaining oil in the previously used pan, add chopped onion, and sauté for approx. 2 min. Add tomato paste and sauté for approx. 1 min. Deglaze with beef stock, add mustard, and cook for approx. 4–6 min. until the sauce has thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and stir in half of the chopped parsley.

    For the purée, drain the cauliflower and potatoes. Return to the pot, and add grated Parmesan cheese. Blend to a fine purée using an immersion blender. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove the meatloaf from the oven, portion, and add a little of the meat juice to the finished gravy, if desired. Spread cauliflower purée on the plates, place meatloaf slices on top, and top with onion gravy and remaining parsley. Arrange oven vegetables next to it and serve immediately.
