Veggie boosted turkey meatloaf

 Meat loaf may be a favorite for many but it can easily become a high fat, nutrient-lacking food.

This variation includes veggies, whole grains and organic ground turkey.







1 lb ground organic turkey (or at least antibiotic free)
8-12 whole grain crackers
1/2 a bunch of greens (chard)
1 tomato
2 local eggs
salt/pepper (omit salt if you have salted crackers)
Turmeric (1 tsp)
I also added some hemp seeds I had in my fridge

Preheat oven to 450.

In a blender puree greens and tomato. You can also add your crackers, but that was an after thought for me!

In a large bowl, combine wet and dry ingredients and ensure everything is well mixed. Put into baking molds (a bread pan or other similar pan works well). Pat into the form and "round" the top" with your hands.


Bake for 50 minutes, uncovered. Top with organic (HFCS-free) ketchup and drain off excess oil before serving.


Served with asparagus and whipped potatoes.
