How to make it

  1. For the Carrot Ketchup: Combine carrot juice, vinegar, honey, salt, granulated onion, and granulated garlic in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer, then set aside to cool. 

  2. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum over top; blend with an immersion blender until completely smooth. If desired, add xanthan gum, 1/4 teaspoon at a time, and blending completely after each addition, until desired texture is reached.

  3. For the Turkey Meatloaf: Preheat oven to 400ºF. Lightly oil 1 sheet pan if making 1 whole loaf, or 2 sheet pans if making individual meatloaves. 

  4. Combine eggs, ketchup, bulgur, and Worcestershire in a medium bowl. Set aside 30 minutes.

  5. Place ground turkey in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed to break up turkey.

  6. Add carrot pulp, bell pepper, onion, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Mix on low speed until well combined, about 2 minutes. 

  7. Add egg mixture. Mix on low speed until well combined, about 2 minutes.

  8. To make individual meatloaves, divide mixture into 6 or 8 portions and form each into a Mickey Mouse shape on prepared sheet pans. To make 1 whole loaf, form mixture into an oval shape on prepared sheet pan.

  9. Bake individual loaves 20 to 25 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165ºF. Bake whole loaf 45 to 55 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165ºF.
