Ingredients

1 1/2
pounds
lean ground turkey
1
onion, chopped
1
bunch spinach, thick stems removed and leaves chopped (about 4 cups)
1
cup
fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1/2
cup
whole-wheat bread crumbs
2
tablespoons
Dijon mustard
1
large egg white
Kosher salt and black pepper
1/4
cup
ketchup
2
pounds
red potatoes, quartered
1
cup
buttermilk
1
tablespoon
extra-virgin olive oil
1/4
cup
jarred marinara sauce, warmed (optional)

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400° F. In a bowl, combine the turkey, onion, spinach, parsley, bread crumbs, mustard, egg white, and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a baking sheet and form it into a 10-inch loaf. Spread with the ketchup. Bake until cooked through, 45 to 50 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, place the potatoes in a large pot of enough water to cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, 15 to 18 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Mash with the buttermilk, oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  4. Serve the meat loaf with the potatoes and the marinara sauce, if using.
