Turkey and Quinoa MeatloafSubmitted by: GRETEL1128
IntroductionI modified a recipe from Drew that I found on Allrecipes.com to calculate calorie content.
The original recipe had tomato paste and hot pepper sauce, both of which I omitted, since I did not have them on hand. I modified a recipe from Drew that I found on Allrecipes.com to calculate calorie content.

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 (omitted)
1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (omitted)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon water
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
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.
Stir the turkey, cooked quinoa, onions, 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.
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.

I made this today. It is good but there is not enough spices in it for me. I found it a little bland.
I will make again but with more spices. - 6/26/11

I would like it with more spices as well, but hubby does not like spicy food.
