Healthier Turkey Meatloaf

I'm still enjoying experimenting with the box full of healthy goodies Pereg Naturals sent me.

This month I decided to tackle two products in one dish, and it came out delicious. My Healthier Turkey Meatloaf is gluten-free and delicious.

I loaded it up with tomatoes, onions, and mushrooms, but you can really use any kind of veggies you'd like.


INGREDIENTS
1 pound ground turkey
1/4 cup Pereg Baby Quinoa
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped mushroom (adjust per your liking)
1/4 cup chopped tomatoes
1 egg
1 tablespoon Pereg Burger Spices

Topping:
2 tablespoons tomato sauce (canned or fresh)
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon chopped basil
Pinch of salt

(See below for complete directions)

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  • Combine turkey, quinoa, onion, mushroom, tomatoes, spices, and egg until well mixed.

  • Spray loaf pan with cooking spray or foil-lined a baking sheet and place formed loaf in the middle.

  • In a small bowl, mix tomato sauce, apple cider vinegar, basil and salt.

  • Spread tomato sauce mixture on top of meatloaf.

  • Bake for 30 minutes. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before cutting for cleaner slices.
