A priceless comfort food, the secret to the best meatloaf is to gently work the ingredients with a fork so the meat does not get too compacted. This Turkey Meatloaf can also be made into meatballs and served with spaghetti sauce, made into burger patties and served with a salad, or even use the leftovers in sandwiches for lunch the next day.


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

  2. Place the quinoa and chicken stock in a small saucepan and cover.

  3. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and let cook for 15 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed.

  4. Place the turkey mince in a large bowl and add the onion, parsley, eggs, tomato paste, garlic, salt, pepper and oregano.

  5. Add the cooked quinoa and use a fork to gently mix the ingredients.

  6. Transfer the mix to a 20cm x 10cm loaf tin and gently push down with a plastic spatula.

  7. Spread half the ketchup over the top. Bake for 45-55 minutes.

  8. When the meatloaf has finished cooking, spoon off the excess liquid and top the meatloaf with the remaining ketchup.

  9. Pop back in the oven for a couple of minutes to heat the ketchup. Let the meatloaf rest for 5 minutes before serving.
