Turkey Quinoa Mini Meatloaves

Ok, Ya'll, here is a simple recipe that is super good! It involves a lot of my favorite things to have for dinner. You know we have a soft spot for Quinoa. As should most of you ;)   This stuff is good for you and there are so many ways to make this stuff taste good.  You can make these at the beginning of the week and bring your leftovers to work for lunches. Give this one a try....

1 egg
dash of pepper
2 garlic cloves or 1 tsp minced garlic
2 cups, chopped Kale (if you are not a fan, replace with spinach)
1/2 small onion chopped
1/2 cup fresh Parsley
5 tbsp ketchup
3/4 cup cooked Quinoa
4 oz ground turkey
1 small red bell pepper
5 tsp Worcestershire sauce


1. Coat a pan with a little cooking spray ( I use avocado oil or EVOO) and saute onion, garlic, bell pepper, and kale until kale is softened. You can add pepper or whatever additional spices you prefer, but caution with adding salt. Too much salt is NOT OK!

2. In a large bowl combine cooled sauteed mixture with your ground turkey, 1 egg, your fresh chopped parsley, and quinoa. Be careful not to over mix though... it will become too dry and tough when cooked.

3. Lightly spray a muffin tin & fill with turkey mixture (makes 12 mini meatloaves). Top each with a tiny bit of ketchup and Worcestershire sauce.

4. Bake at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes. Let cool for a couple of minutes then enjoy!!

** Tip:  top yours off with some of your favorite hot sauce... I used Tapatio and it was mighty fine!!
