A Stack of Ground Turkey and Vegetable Meals


A Stack of Ground Turkey and Vegetable Meals

This recipe is one of three meals that are made with some of the same ingredients. Cook one or try cooking them as a “stack” of three to best utilize your time and ingredients. Start with Turkey & Sun-dried Tomato Mini Meatloaves and after cooking that, you will be part-way toward two other meals in the stack, Roasted Tomatoes with Olives and Feta and Spinach and Artichoke and Broccoli Pasta Salad.

Turkey & Sun-dried Tomato Mini Meatloaves

Serves 5-6 if just cooking this meal. Serves 2 if cooking the “stack” of 3 meals.


Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs 
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced 
  • ⅓ - ½ cup chopped fresh parsley 
  • 3 ounces sliced sun-dried tomatoes, marinated in olive oil 
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs or almond meal 
  • 4 ounces of spinach, chopped 
  • 3 ounces feta cheese, crumbled 
  • 1 ⅓ pounds ground turkey 
  • Salt and pepper, to taste 


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Prepare a medium sized baking sheet.
  3. Lightly beat 2 eggs in the bottom of a large bowl. Add olive oil, minced garlic, chopped parsley, sun-dried tomatoes, breadcrumbs/almond meal, spinach, feta cheese and some salt and pepper and mix to combine. Add ground turkey and mix well.
  4. Form 2 mini meatloaves out of the mixture (each about the shape & size of a brick), and place them on your prepared baking sheet.
  5. Place meatloaves in the oven and cook until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees, about 30-35 minutes.

     If cooking the “stack” of 3 meals, store 1 mini meatloaf for later use.

    Don't stop there! Use your leftovers to make 2 more UNIQUE MEALS: Roasted Tomatoes with Olives and Feta and Spinach and Artichoke and Broccoli Pasta Salad.

    Each day’s cooking is a building block for the next day’s meal.

    The plan is divided into 2 STACKS, with a BASE BLOCK that begins each STACK. These BASE BLOCKS are the days we cook our proteins and veggies and take only 20 hands-on minutes in the kitchen.

    Then on the other days, we change or add to the foods that were made in the BASE BLOCK in order to create 2 more unique meals in each STACK. And get this, those meals only take about 5 minutes for you to assemble.
