Phase II recipe As one review indicated, this is a bit on the bland side. For those of you not watching your salt intake, the flavor is improved by using tomato paste with the salt included. This is not a recipe to impress dinner guests, but an easy healthy weekday recipe. Its a good way to eat zucchini without realizing you are eating it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Combine the tomato paste, wine, water, garlic, basil, oregano, and salt in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Simmer, uncovered for 15 minute Set aside.
  2. Combine the turkey, oatmeal, egg substitute, zucchini, and 1/2 cup of the tomato mixture ina large bowl. Mix well. Shape into a loaf and place into an ungreased 8"x4" loaf pan. Bake for 45 minute Discard any drippings. Pour 1/2 cup of the remaining tomato mixture on top of the loaf. Bake for an additional 15 minute.
  3. Place on a serving platter. Cool for 10 min before slicing. Serve the remaining tomato sauce on the side.

If you want it with a bit more kick do what I did. Add several dashes of Tabasco Chipotle to the sauce. I have also made this with Bison instead of the ground Turkey; it is very lean so it still fits the South Beach requirements but gives a more traditional meatloaf.

For some reason, I just love this recipe. I didn't grow up eating meatloaf, but I love this dish. It's warm and satisfying and I love how it tastes so healthy without losing flavor. I have not found it to be dry, however, sometimes I do have trouble getting it out of the pan in one piece. No matter! Tastes just as good.

This just didn't go over very well - it was a bit on the bland side, so much so that we didn't bother to save the leftovers.
