Pre­heat oven to 180C, fan-forced. Lightly grease a 5cm deep, 13cm x 23cm (base) loaf pan. Heat 2 ta­ble­spoons of oil in a large non-stick fry­ing pan over high heat. Add mush­rooms.

Set aside ½ cup of mush­rooms to top the meatloaf. Add mince, pre­cooked rice and quinoa, green onions, car­rot, zuc­chini, cap­sicum and half the parme­san and half the thyme to mush­rooms in the pan. Mix with clean hands un­til well com­bined. Press mix­ture into pre­pared pan. Smooth sur­face. Sprin­kle over re­served mush­rooms and re­main­ing thyme, gen­tly press­ing them into the meatloaf. Bake for about 40-45 min­utes, or un­til cooked when tested with a skewer. Stand for 15 min­utes. Mean­while, in­crease oven to 220C, fan-forced. Place toma­toes on to a greased bak­ing tray.

Sprin­kle over re­main­ing parme­san, slice and serve with roasted toma­toes.
