I've modified this recipe to work for us. I took out the egg, changed up the spices a bit & took out the onions, 'cuz Hubby's tummy seems to do better when I leave them out. The original recipe includes ingredients for a yummy sounding sauce but it includes things I can't have so I just 86'd the sauce in the interest of keeping it simple. Hubby puts ketchup on it but Ella and I like it just fine with no sauce.
1/2 cup Quinoa
1 cup water (you can also use vegetable stock, if you prefer)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup apple sauce
1 lb ground turkey
2 tsp minced garlic (two cloves)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp dried basil
Place quinoa, water (or broth) and vinegar in medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil then cover and simmer until water is absorbed (15ish minutes). Set aside and allow cooked quinoa to cool.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In large bowl, combine ground turkey, apple sauce, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, parsley and basil and cooled quinoa. With hands, mix thoroughly. Place mixture evenly in a glass baking dish and bake for 45-50 minutes. (The original recipe says 1 1/2 hrs but I have never seen it take nearly this long -- keep an eye on it & when the top starts to brown, it's ready.)
