I found it on the Better Homes and Garden Blog on 10/11/2005, but it seems not to exist there anymore.
Makes 4 Servings
Prep:  20 Minutes
Bake: 50 Minutes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chopped onions
1 tablespoon red curry base (but I use ketchup)
2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup shredded zucchini
1 container (8 oz) plain low-fat yogurt
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 - 1/2 pounds ground white turkey meat
1 cup shredded zucchini
1 cup bread crumbs (2 to 3 slices firm white bread)
1 large egg
3/4 teaspoon salt
Cooked broccoli (optional)
Cooked red potatoes (optional)


1.  Heat oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the 1 cup onions and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove skillet from heat; stir in curry base (or ketchup) and water until smooth. Cool.

2. For the Yogurt Sauce, combine zucchini, yogurt, the 1 tablespoon onion, the 1/2 teaspoon salt and the sugar in a medium bowl; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

3. Heat oven to 375 degree F. Combine turkey, zucchini, bread crumbs, egg, the 3/4 teaspoon salt and the onion mixture in large bowl until just mixed. Line a 13x9-inch pan with foil; lightly coat bottom with vegetable cooking spray. Shape turkey mixture into 8x4-inch wide loaf in center of prepared pan. Bake 50 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degree F.

4. Remove meatloaf from oven; cover with foil and let stand 10 minutes. Slice loaf and serve with Yogurt Sauce (and/or ketchup), and broccoli and red potatoes, if desired. Makes 4 servings. 

*Note: Red curry is available at some supermarkets and at food specialty stores.
