Happy Wednesday, all! We’re two days closer to Friday.

I’ve got a quick and easy recipe to share with you guys. It’s very simple to throw together and takes no time at all to bake. I’ve made this countless times and it always turns out really well. You could make this with whatever meat you’d like, but I prefer turkey for this.

Turkey veggie meatloaf (inspired by PaleOMG’s chicken basil loaf)

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (or coconut flour)
  • 1/2 cup red sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried basil
  • salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine everything in a bowl and mix well.
  3. Coat a loaf pan with olive oil or coconut oil.
  4. Add mixture to pan.
  5. Cook for 30 – 40 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool before serving.
