Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf with baby greens and feta

This was really good. Good flavor, nice texture.

    • 1/4 cup quinoa
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1 teaspoon olive oil
    • 1 small onion, chopped
    • 1 large clove garlic, chopped
    • 1 (20 ounce) package ground turkey
    • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
    • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
    • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 egg
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 teaspoon water
    1. Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, and the water has been absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside to cool.
    2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    3. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute; remove from heat to cool.
    4. Stir the turkey, cooked quinoa, onions, tomato paste, hot sauce, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire, egg, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until well combined. The mixture will be very moist. Shape into a loaf on a foil lined baking sheet. Combine the brown sugar, 2 teaspoons Worcestershire, and 1 teaspoon water in a small bowl. Rub the paste over the top of the meatloaf.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 50 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Let the meatloaf cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
