Turkey meatloaf

Here’s an easy way out for next week’s lunch/ dinner: turkey meatloaf. It’s easy to prepare and you’ll have less meat but more veggies.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 big onion, sliced or chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and grated
  • 1 celery stick, chopped
  • 2 slices of bread, soaked in milk
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 250 gr. mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 roasted peppers (tip: buy them to save time, you can find them in the pickles sections in jars)
  • 500 gr. lean ground turkey
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • Salt, pepper, parsley and some wheatlets or bread crumbs (optional)

Preparation:

        Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a pan and add onion, garlic and celery stick. Cook until brown or translucent (5 min.).
        Add mushrooms and cook for another 5 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool down.
        In a big bowl, mix turkey with grated carrot. Add salt, pepper and parsley to taste. Chop the roasted peppers and add them too.
        Soak the bread slices in milk. Discard the milk and incorporate the bread into the turkey mixture.
        Incorporate onion mix from the pan into the turkey.

        Lightly beat the 2 eggs and add them to the turkey mixture as well.
        Place turkey mixture into a loaf pan and sprinkle with wheatlets or bread crumbs (optional).
        Bake in the oven at 350F for 45 minutes or until done.
