1/4 cup Green Puree or Orange Puree*
2 Tablespoons tomato paste
4 Tablespoons ketchup, divided
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 medium onion (about 1/2 cup), finely minced or pureed in a food processor
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup rolled oats, ground in a food processor
1/3 cup wheat germ, unsweetened (I did not use, and it came out fine)
1 teaspoon salt
1 pound lean ground beef or turkey
Cooking spray for baking sheet or bread pan
1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a baking sheet or bread pan with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, combine the Green or Orange Puree and tomato paste, mixing well (with the back of a fork) until the green color turns brownish. Mix in 2 tablespoons of ketchup, egg, onion, Worcestershire, oats, wheat germ, and salt. Add the ground meat to this mixture and mix with your hands until well combined, then shape it into a single rectangular loaf, or 4 mini loaves, on the prepared baking sheet. Glaze the top and sides of the loaf or loaves with the remaining ketchup, adding a little more if needed to cover the top and sides of the loaf.
3. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, until the internal temperature is 160 degrees.
