GREAT choice for diabetics! To make this a full meal, pair this recipe with a serving of potatoes or brown rice, or add more vegetables to your meal.
1 3-lb package of Lean ground turkey*
5 cups grated zucchini (we used regular green zucchinis, but crooked neck squash would also work)
1 cup grated carrot
3 Tablespoons seasoning (we used Urban Accent Steak & Chop, a blend of sea salt, garlic, black pepper, dried onion, coriander, dill seed, caraway and chili pepper)
Grate the zucchini and carrot, rinse thoroughly and then press out all the water. Combine zucchini, grated carrot, turkey and seasonings, mix thoroughly.
Prepare baking pan with at least 1-inch walls, spray with olive oil. Divide meat mixture into 8 one-cup balls, place on a pan with at least 2-3 inches in between.
375 degrees, for about 30-35minute, until no longer pink inside. Drain off the liquids.
Nutrition Information: About 300 calories per individual meatloaf.
Some notes: We use ground turkey because the fat content is much lower than other ground meats. Notice that there is no added fats or fillers. If you choose to add carbohydrates such as crackers or oatmeal, it will change the consistency of the meatloaf, it will be moister, but the calorie and carbohydrate content will be much higher.
*Note – you can use Extra Lean, but it would be much drier; if you use the regular ground turkey blend the fat content would be higher, thus higher calories.
