Ingredients
  • ½ cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup chicken broth or water
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ medium yellow onion, minced
  • ½ red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 pound 90 percent lean ground beef
  • 1 pound 93 percent lean ground turkey (99 percent lean will be too dry)
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1½ teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • ¾ cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • For the Glaze
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1½ teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons warm water
Instructions

  1. Combine the quinoa and chicken broth in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer, cover the saucepan with a lid, and cook for 12-14 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed. Let the quinoa rest, covered fro 5 minutes, then fluff for a fork. Set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic and cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are very soft but not browned. Stir in the tomato paste and cook for 1 minute, then transfer the veggie mixture to a large mixing bowl. Let cool.
  4. While the veggies are cooling, whisk together all the ingredients for the glaze. Set the glaze aside.
  5. Add the ground beef, turkey and cooked quinoa, Worcestershire, salt, red pepper flakes, yogurt, and eggs to the mixing bowl with the veggies. Mix everything together with your hands until just combined.Don't over mix or the meatloaf will be dry.
  6. Dump the meat mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. It will be very soft and wet. Mold the meat with your hands into a 9 X 5-inch rectangular loaf. Spread half of the glaze evenly on top.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes, top with the remaining glaze and bake for another 15 minutes or until the meatloaf is cooked through. Let the meatloaf rest for 10 minutes. Slice into thick pieces and serve.
