Turkey Meatloaf CDThis was a hit in the household!  Clean Eating served it with a Turnip-Cauliflower Mash, but since I had fresh green beans from my garden, I used them.  I’ve included their Turnip-Cauliflower Mash ingredients and directions.

INGREDIENTS
1 lb lean Ground Turkey
1 cup onion, diced
3/4 cup uncooked oatmeal
1/2 cup carrots, grated
2  egg whites, whisked
2 tsp Italian seasoning, divided
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
6 oz canned tomato paste
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 garlic clove, mashed
1 tsp agave nectar

Turnip-Cauliflower Mash
1 head cauliflower, leaves removed and cut into pieces
2 turnips, skin removed and cut into 1/4-inch pieces
2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tbsp fresh basil, finely minced (or 1 tsp dried basil)
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine turkey, onion, oatmeal, egg whites, 1 tsp seasoning, and cayenne. Place mixture in a 9-inch loaf pan.

In another bowl, whisk together tomato paste, vinegar, garlic, 1 tsp seasoning and agave nectar. Spread mixture over meatloaf. Bake 45-50 minutes.

Turnip-Cauliflower Mash

In a large bowl, mash together turnips and cauliflower, oil, basil, salt and pepper.
