Ingredients

Meatloaf:
Tomato Sauce:
Kale:

Directions

Tomato Sauce:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. 

In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, chicken sausage, zucchini, pomegranate seeds, bread crumbs, shallots, egg, garlic, cumin, and sumac. Season the mixture with plenty of salt, and pepper. Combine lightly, do not over mix. 

Line a small baking sheet with foil and drizzle with oil. Split turkey mixture into four equal portions. Take each portion and shape into an eye shape that's long, flat and about 1-inch high. Place on the prepared sheet pan. 

Cut the onion in half and pick out 2 "leaves" from the center of each half. Place one "leaf" in the center of each turkey "eye" so it looks like the white of an eye. Then slice the olive in half and place each in the center of each turkey eye. 

Bake the meatloaves in the oven, about 20 to 25 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the middle of the loaves reads 160 degrees F. Remove and set aside. Cover with foil and keep warm. 

While the turkey is baking, make the tomato sauce. 

To make the tomato sauce: Stir the tomato paste, wine, water, bay leaf, and thyme together in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, then lower to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes, seasoning with salt, and pepper along the way.

Kale:

To make the kale: Heat the olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. Add the kale and cook 1 minute, then add the water and dates. Lower the heat to medium, cover and cook 5 minutes, or until the kale has softened but still has a bite. 

To serve, divide the kale among 4 plates, top each with a turkey meatloaf "eye" and top with tomato sauce around the "white" of the eye.
