Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Looking for a lighter meatloaf?  This is a good recipe to try.  We like to eat this when we are on a 'healthier eating' kick.  

1/2 c. cooked quinoa
1 tsp. olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 large garlic clove, chopped
1 (20 oz.) pkg ground turkey
1 Tbsp. tomato paste
1 Tbsp. hot pepper sauce
2 Tbsp.+ 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce, divided
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Heat olive oil in skillet over medium high.  Stir in the onion, cooked until softened; add the garlic, cook for an additional minute.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.

In a bowl, combine the turkey, quinoa, onions, tomato paste, hot sauce, 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce, egg, salt, and pepper; mix until well combined.

Shape into a loaf and place on a foil lined baking sheet.  Combine the 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and water; rub over the top of the meatloaf.  

Bake for about 50 minutes or until no longer pink in the middle (should reach 160-170 degrees in the center).  Allow to cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
