Nobody likes boring food and I’m always doing my best to make meals for my family that are fun and flavorful. That’s why I’ve taken the blenditarian pledge! Don’t know what that is? The official definition of a blenditarian is someone who believes that the mighty, meaty mushroom makes meals more delicious, nutritious and sustainable. I’m a believer!
The Blend takes the flavor of your recipes up several notches by combining them with mushrooms and other ingredients. I’m already a big fan of mushrooms so putting them in my best turkey meatloaf recipe sounded like a great idea to me!
I made turkey meatloaf with mushrooms because adding mushrooms makes everything tastier and nutritious. It’s also an easy way to sneak a few more vegetables into dinner! Mushrooms are fat free, cholesterol free, low in calories and provide nutrients like vitamins D & B, potassium and antioxidants so our yummy meals our healthy too!
The Blend even helps me with my budget.When I add mushrooms to our meat, it adds bulk so we’re able to stretch meals and get more servings.
Want to learn how to include The Blend in your recipes? It’s simple:
- Chop your favorite mushroom variety to match the consistency of the ground meat.
- Blend chopped mushrooms with the ground meat.
- Cook the mushroom-meat blend to complete the recipe.
- Optional: Before chopping, roast mushrooms for 10-15 minutes to enhance flavor. Let them cool, then chop and blend.

My first official blenditarian recipe has turned out to be a big hit with my family! The Blend took my regular turkey meatloaf recipe and turned it into something that my kids and my husband couldn’t get enough of! I’m sure your family will love this Turkey Meatloaf With Spinach, Feta And Mushrooms just as much as mine did!
Turkey Meatloaf With Mushrooms
To me, the perfect recipe is not just one that tastes great, but it has to be easy to make too. That’s why I love this one. Just gather your ingredients and you’re ready to go.
Start with 20 ounces of ground turkey. Feel free to double this recipes if you want extra leftovers the next day. Meatloaf makes great leftovers!
Combine the ingredients in a big bowl and blend.
Place blended mixture in a meatloaf pan.
Top with BBQ sauce. You can make your own but I just used store bought brown sugar BBQ sauce. Honey BBQ sauce would also be tasty!
Bake for 45-50 minutes (until internal temp is 165).
This meatloaf was SO good…seriously tasty! My girls (and my hubby) ate every last bite!!!
The mushrooms really give it that extra flavor and while I’ve blended from time to time in the past, I’m definitely going to be doing The Blend more often.
I paired our turkey meatloaf with asparagus and potatoes and it made for a delicious dinner. My kids are already requesting it for dinner again…that’s always a good thing!
I’ve always loved mushrooms but now I’m planning to cook with them even more often. The Blend makes everything better…stay tuned to see what I’ve got up my sleeve next.
