Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf
Recipe type: Dinner
  • ¼ cup quinoa
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 large clove garlic, chopped
  • 1½ pounds ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon water
  1. Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, and the water has been absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Set aside to cool.
  4. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  6. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.
  7. Add the garlic and cook for another minute; remove from heat to cool.
  8. Stir the turkey, cooked quinoa, onions, tomato paste, hot sauce, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire, egg, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until well combined.
  9. The mixture will be very moist. Shape into a loaf on a foil lined baking sheet. Combine the brown sugar, 2 teaspoons Worcestershire, and 1 teaspoon water in a small bowl.
  10. Rub the paste over the top of the meatloaf.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 55-60 minutes.
