Scallions, hoisin sauce and ginger give this pork-and-turkey meatloaf great flavor and plenty of vegetables boost the fiber and nutrients. We love the texture of brown rice as a filler in this healthy Asian-flavored meatloaf recipe, but feel free to swap fresh whole-wheat breadcrumbs for the rice.Ingredients
Total Time: 1 1/2 hours
1 large red bell pepper, cut into 2-inch pieces
8 ounces shiitake mushroom caps, halved
1 8-ounce can water chestnuts, drained
4 scallions, sliced, whites and greens divided
1 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, or canola oil
5 tablespoons hoisin sauce, (see Tips), divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cup cooked brown rice, (see Tips)
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
8 ounces ground pork
Prepare through Step 3, cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Let stand at room temperature while oven preheats; bake until an instant-read thermometer registers 165°F, about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray (or see Loaf Pan Variation).
Pulse bell pepper, mushrooms, water chestnuts, scallion whites and ginger in a food processor until finely chopped. (Or finely chop them with a knife.)
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the vegetables and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and most of the liquid has evaporated, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool for 10 minutes.
Add 2 chopped scallion greens, 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce and salt to the vegetables; stir to combine. Stir in egg and rice. Add ground turkey and pork and with clean hands gently knead the vegetable mixture into the meat; do not overmix. Pat the meat mixture into a loaf shape (about 12 by 5 inches) on the prepared baking sheet. Spread the remaining 3 tablespoons hoisin on top.
Bake the meatloaf until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 165°F, about 45 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining scallion greens. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
