Green Turkey Meatloaf with Spicy Tomato-Spinach Sauce
This delicious low fat meal is easy and satisfying and green… literally!
- 1 lb organic ground turkey
- 1 green bell pepper
- 1/2 red onion
- 1 thyme sprig
- 3 tbsp bread crumbs
- salt and pepper to taste
- a dash of cumin, chili powder and red pepper flakes
In a food processor grind veggies until almost pureed, then mix in a large bowl with turkey, seasoning and bread crumbs. In a casserole dish or sheet pan over a large sheet of aluminum, mold turkey mixture into a loaf. Set aside and pre-heat oven to 350F
- 2 cups crushed pepper and tomato sauce
- 1 cup vegetable broth
- 1 cup chopped spinach
- 2 sprigs thyme (chopped)
- 2 tbsp ketchup
Mix all ingredients well (except spinach) Drizzle about 4-5 spoonfuls of sauce over meat loaf and wrap up in foil and bake for 30min. Place the rest of the sauce in a sauce pan, add spinach and simmer on low while loaf cooks.
After 30 minutes, unwrap foil just enough to have the top of the loaf exposed and cook for another 30 minutes.
When done cut into slices, makes about 10. Serve and pour tomato sauce over.
Serve with salad, rice or pasta… either way… you’ll be happy :)
