How to make it

  • Put the Quinoa and water or broth in a saucepan. Bring to boil and cook for about ten minutes. You know it's cooked when the spiral tail appears. It's that little tail that stays crunchy giving quinoa turkey meat loaf a unique and fantastic texture.
  • Put the ground turkey and all other ingredients except the quinoa into a large bowl. Mix thoroughly.
  • Place the Quinoa in the bowl and mix it in. Be sure the Quinoa has cooled off.
  • Place mixture in appropriate size baking dish. Sprinkle some parsley over the top to add some color.
  • It's difficult to say precisely how long to bake your meat loaf since it depends on the dish you're using, your ovens characteristics, etc. I bake it, covered, for 1 hour and then check to see if it's done. If it's a shallow baking dish you might want to start to check it sooner. You want it to be done but don't overcook it. Youwant it to be moist.
  • Remove from oven and let stand for about twenty minutes. I serve mine with the bottle of Chipotle Tabasco sauce on the table for an additional kick if desired.

    Not only is this a great combination of ingredients, but a great use of Pinoa too. Worthy of a very High Five!
