- 1 1/4 lb ground turkey breast
- 1 medium yellow onion (diced)
- 1 large zucchini (shredded)
- 1 large celery stalk (finely chopped)
- 3 medium carrots (shredded)
- 1 red bell pepper (finely chopped)
- 1/2 lb mushrooms (chopped)
- 4 garlic cloves (minced)

- 2 tbsp tomato paste
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley (finely chopped)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a loaf sized baking pan with foil.
Spray a nonstick skillet with non fat cooking spray. Saute the onion until softened – about 3-5 minutes. Add in the carrots, celery, and bell pepper, and cook for another 3-5 minutes to soften the veggies. Add in the zucchini, mushrooms and garlic and saute about 3 more minutes.
In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, oats, parsley, egg substitute, applesauce, tomato paste, paprika, salt and pepper. Fold in the veggies.
Empty the mixture into your baking pan, and shape mixture into a loaf form with your hands.
Bake until browned and meat inside is thoroughly cooked – about 1 hour.
Remove from oven and let stand about 10-15 minutes. Cut into 6 equally sized slices.
