directions

  • Bring the quinoa and 1/2 cup of water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, and the water has been absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute; remove from heat to cool.
  • Mix the turkey, cooked quinoa, onions, garlic, zucchini, yellow peppers, tomato paste, 1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, egg, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until well combined. The mixture will be very moist. Shape into a loaf on a foil lined baking sheet or place into a loaf pan. Combine the 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, and 1/2 cup of ketchup in a small bowl. Rub the ketchup mixture over the top of the meatloaf.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 50 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Let the meatloaf cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Bon Appétit!

    This has become a go-to recipe! I just use 1 zucchini and 1 bell pepper instead of bothering with measuring. I also use about 3X as much ketchup topping because me and hubby like it saucy. :)

    I just made this tonight and both of my teen-aged sons loved it. In fact one was surprised it was homemade! I omitted the salt, the topping of W. sauce and ketchup, and forgot the egg. Excellent!
