Simple! Washing dishes uses up a lot of water, so the fewer dishes you have to wash the less water you're going to use. There is a dangerous drought here in the HolyLand.
So, how is this meatloaf, which I served last Shabbat when we had guests, water-saving?
Simple, it was mixed, baked and served in the same pretty, oven-proof baking pan. It's a very easy, no fuss recipe. Warning: I never measure, because it really doesn't matter. This version is perfect for celiacs and low-carb dieters, since there's neither matzah meal nor bread crumbs.
Mix all this in your baking pan:
- 500 grams or about a pound of chopped meat, poultry or combination. (Of course you can make more or less depending on your pan)
- chopped up onion
- a couple of spoons of tomato paste, to taste* (but don't taste the raw meat. To taste* means what your family likes)
- an egg
- any other spices like garlic, parsley, oregano etc, to taste*
