Meat Loaf

IMG_3678I’ve been trying to keep up with our family’s goals of eating healthier and quit wasting so much food. It’s not easy yet last night I felt like I was able to keep those goals and not have to sacrifice taste! I made a meat loaf that was packed with vegetables and you couldn’t taste it; which was the best part. I actually got the idea from my sister who has a husband and children that hate eating vegetables so she would sneak it in! She’s a genius.

 

 

Meat Loaf

1 or 2 lbs of Ground Turkey

1 Stalk of kale

1 Zucchini

1 Pepper

1 Egg

¾ c. Rolled Oats

½ Tbls Onion powder, Parsley, Basil

1 Tbls of Fresh Garlic

¼ c. Ketchup

(optional) 5 drops of Hickory Liquid Smoke

 Preheat oven to 400 degrees

IMG_3674I started by taking kale, zucchini, and a whole yellow pepper and put it in the food processor. Each one was showing age and before

I would feel justified to through each into the garbage. However it’s a new year and I need to be more responsible.

With the vegetables in the food processor add the egg. Blend well.

IMG_3676Add the vegetable mixture to the turkey. Add rolled oats and mix well.

 

Add spices, ketchup, and hickory liquid smoke.

Add to a baking dish and add more ketchup to the top. Cook for 40mins.

As a side note you can really use any vegetables that you would like or are starting to age. You will not be able to taste any of them!

Hope you enjoy the recipe! Thanks for reading and may the GF be with you!
