Chicken and Rice with Meat

Rating: 4 stars 14
An everyday dish of Middle Eastern origin, simple to make, with a slightly exotic flavor. It isn't fancy, but my family loves it. My husband's father used to make it.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Rating: 4.5 stars 2415
I always found turkey meatloaf to be quite disappointing. The flavor is usually lacking as well as the texture. Well, I have developed this version that has a great texture and a surprisingly good flavor (my brother couldn't even tell that it wasn't beef)! The secret is the quinoa, which adds wonderful texture and is much nuttier than breadcrumbs. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
