My Darling Daughter sent me a recipe which I tried over the weekend. It was a delicious recipe and it brought back memories of my college days.
When I was at Baylor, almost every Friday the cafeteria served “Vegetable Meatloaf”. We students used to laugh about it because it seemed to us that the cafeteria would save all of the leftover peas, carrots and green beans from the week. On Friday we would get meatloaf with little bits of orange and green peaking out of the ground beef. Though we joked about it, most of us admitted that it tasted good. Even I, who at that time of my life ate almost no vegetables at all, liked Vegetable Meatloaf.
Here is the recipe that DD sent:
1 lb ground turkey
2 medium carrots, grated
1 stalk celery, shredded
1 Tbsp olive oil
¼ tsp each of thyme, basil, rosemary, sage, oregano and garlic powder.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Roll the mixture into small meatballs and place on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Cook in the oven 10 – 15 minutes.
I served them to my husband with pasta and a sauce. I ate mine plain with a sweet potato. We both had a side salad.
