Finished turkey meatloaf

Turkey is an excellent source of protein and is low in fat.

Here I have made it with the vegetables included (so if you have someone who doesn't eat vegetables, they will not notice if they are cut fine enough).

I have not cut the vegetables very fine

The vegetables included are all high in antioxidants.

I have served this with a mash of broccoli and potatoes combined, as well as a dipping plate of the home made tomato sauce.

Preparation Time: 40 minutes
Cooking Time: 70 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

500 g turkey mince
capsicum, diced
medium carrot, grated
medium zucchini, grated
1 egg
2 tbsp parsley, chopped
1-2 cloves garlic
1 tsp ground sage (or subs marjoram)
2 tsp dry mustard
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
cup Parmesan cheese, grated
200 g Tomatoes
1 Onion
1 clove garlic

I made the tomato sauce the day before, however you can make it while the turkey is in the oven. If you want to save time, you could use a bought sauce, however home made WILL taste nicer. You could make a sauce also with 1 cup of tomato sauce, 1 tsp vinegar, and 1 tbsp of sugar.

Fry the onions in a bit of oil until they are soft.

Add the chopped tomatoes and cook.

Tomatoes and onion cooking

Continue cooking till the mixture has thickened, about 10 minutes, stirring several times so it does not stick.

Tomato sauce cooked

Preheat the oven to 180C or 170C if fan forced.

Put the turkey in a large bowl, and add the Worcestershire sauce, egg (mine was a double yolker!), sage, garlic, Parmesan and a bit of pepper.

Turkey loaf mixture

Next add the vegetables to the turkey mixture.

Vegetables can be cut or grated finer than this

Mix until well combined -this is best done with your fingers.

Mixture has been thoroughly mixed

In a small loaf tin, put some baking paper down, or else grease (it is far cleaner to use the baking paper). Put the turkey mixture into this and press it down slightly.

Mixture ready to be baked

Bake for about 1 hour 10 minutes, take out of oven and drain the liquid carefully from the loaf.

Spread part of the home made tomato on the top, and stand in oven for 5 minutes.

Spread tomato sauce on top

While the turkey is cooking, boil the potatoes and when almost done, add the broccoli.

Cooking the potato and broccoli mash

Mash this just before the turkey loaf is ready, adding a bit of milk, butter, salt and pepper.

Take turkey out of oven and slice.

Very impressive, tasty turkey loaf

Serve with a dipping plate of the home made tomato sauce, and the mash mixture.

Healthy and great tasting!
