Low Calorie Turkey Meatloaf

Low Calorie Turkey Meatloaf Husband loves meatloaf.   We have been on a strict diet of fruits, nuts, beans and veggies for 3 weeks.  Now he is pumping iron and needs a protein fix.  He has been doing so well, I wanted to reward him with something he loves, but make it healthy as well as delicious.

Nut Roast

My girl friends (who are all amazing cooks) were talking about a meat loaf recipe at our last luncheon, so I decided to investigate.  I have never tried meat loaf and the closest I have been to it, is a  Nut Roast, that I cook every Christmas.  A tasty vegan alternative to turkey that is full of pine nuts and walnuts and has a herbed stuffing in the middle.  Turkey can be bland, so I made sure there was plenty of flavor by adding a stock cube turkey kale burgerand Worcestershire and horseradish sauce.

This recipe is full of veggies, healthy, very simple to make and husband loves it.  I wanted to make balls, rather than a loaf for easy portion control, but the man wanted a loaf. Here is another turkey recipe that is full of veggies, Turkey Kale Burgers.


So here it is….
