Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 sweet red pepper finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon dried Italian herb seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 2 cups chopped baby spinach
  • 450 g lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking (not instant) rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup bottled strained tomatoes (passata)
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons liquid honey
  • 3 large red-skinned potatoes scrubbed and cut in 1/2-inch (1 cm) chunks

Method

In small skillet, heat 1 tsp of the oil over medium heat; cook red pepper, garlic, half of the Italian seasoning, and a pinch each of the salt and pepper, stirring often, until red pepper is softened, about 4 minutes. Stir in spinach; cook until wilted and no liquid remains, about 2 minutes. Transfer to bowl; let cool slightly.

Mix turkey and oats into pepper mixture; roll into eight balls; place one each in wells of nonstick muffin pan.

Stir together strained tomatoes, vinegar and honey; spoon over meat loaves. Bake in 400 F (200 C) oven until instant-read thermometer inserted into several reads 165 F (74 C), about 12 minutes. Broil until sauce on top thickens, about 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, in nonstick skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; cook potatoes, and remaining Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, stirring, until potatoes are lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water; reduce heat, cover and simmer until no liquid remains and potatoes are almost tender, about 5 minutes. Uncover and cook, stirring, until potatoes are tender, about 5 minutes. Serve with meat loaves.
