When I say “meatloaf,” you go “Yeah, baby!”
When I say “turkey meatloaf,” you go “Uh, okay.”
And when I say “turkey quinoa meatloaf,” do you groan, “Ehhh?!”
If so, you reacted just like my husband when I first proposed making this for dinner.
And like him, you’ll surely be won over from the first moist, flavorful bite.
“Turkey Quinoa Meatloaf” is a recipe from the new “The Art of Pantry Cooking” (Rizzoli), of which I received a review copy. It’s by Ronda Carman, a lifestyle writer and former recipe contributor to Southern Living.
As the name implies, the book’s 100-plus recipes make use of pantry basics that we all do — or should — keep on hand.
What’s more, the chapters are even arranged by ingredient. For instance, got a half-bag of bulgur lying around? Then, make “Lemon-Bulgur Ricotta Pancakes” or “Hearty Tomato Soup with Bulgar.” Hiding a can of chickpeas in the back of a cabinet? Dig it out to use in “Lemon-Parmesan Chickpea Pasta.” Have some leftover panko? Whip up “Sheet-Pan Panko Lamb Meatballs with Walnut Chimichurri Sauce.”Read more
