I needed something to use up my green tomatoes. I found this recipe in Keeping the Harvest by Nancy Chioffi and Cretchen Mead. I modified the spices to suit my tastes (used heaping teaspoons). This makes an excellent meatloaf when combined (1/2 pt) with 1 lb ground turkey, 1 egg and 2 crushed matzos (topped with 1/4 cup of ketchup mixed with 2 Tbsp brown sugar and 1/2 tsp cumin). Also good on hamburgers (mixed with ketchup) and hotdogs. I hand chopped the veggies because I wanted to give this as gifts, and I like the uniformity of the pieces, but using a food processor would take a fraction of the time.
