  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • ½ cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce (no salt added), divided
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 2 lbs ground turkey breast
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the onion, garlic, celery, basil. Then stir in the egg whites, oregano, thyme, and pepper.
  3. Mix in 1 cup of the tomato sauce along with the quinoa. Stir in the ground turkey until everything is all blended
  4. Spray an 9-inch square baking dish with non-stick cooking spray, then spread the turkey mixture evenly into the dish.
  5. Stir the smoked paprika into the remaining tomato sauce, and spread over the top of the meatloaf.
  6. Bake for 1¼ hours or until done. Let rest for a few minutes before serving.
Feel free to use cooked rice instead of the quinoa. Also, regular ground turkey can be used instead of ground turkey breast--just be aware that it's a bit more fatty.
