    Prepare & roast the potatoes
    1 Prepare & roast the potatoes

    Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the potatoes into 1-inch-wide wedges. Transfer to a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer, skin side down. Roast 27 to 29 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    2 Prepare the remaining ingredients

    Meanwhile, peel the carrots; halve crosswise, then quarter lengthwise. Peel 2 cloves of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. In a bowl, combine the ketchup and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

    Prepare the remaining ingredients
     Form & bake the meatloaf
    3 Form & bake the meatloaf

    Evenly coat one side of a separate sheet pan with a drizzle of olive oil. In a large bowl, combine the Beyond Beef™, egg, Italian seasoning, garlic paste, tomato paste, half the breadcrumbs (you will have extra), and half the cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Using your hands, gently mix until just combined. Transfer to the oiled side of the sheet pan. Shape into a tightly packed loaf, about 10 inches by 3 inches. Transfer half the spicy ketchup to a separate bowl and set aside for serving. Evenly top the meatloaf with the remaining spicy ketchup. Roast 10 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven.

    4 Finish the meatloaf & roast the carrots

    Meanwhile, place the carrot pieces in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Reserving the bowl, carefully transfer the seasoned carrots to the other side of the sheet pan of partially roasted meatloaf. Roast 18 to 20 minutes, or until the carrots are tender when pierced with a fork and the meatloaf is cooked through (the center may still be red or pink).* Remove from the oven. Let the meatloaf rest at least 2 minutes. 

    *An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F for Beyond Beef™.

Garnish the carrots with the remaining cheese. Enjoy!
