Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, add egg, oatmeal, milk, oregano, coriander and season with Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mix to combine and allow to stand for 5 minutes.
In a large saute pan, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add garlic, onion, celery, carrot and thyme and cook until softened, about 5-7 minutes. Season with Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Allow to cool slightly.
Add the beef, turkey, vegetable mixture and parsley to the oat mixture and mix to combine. Fill the loaf pan with the meat mixture and bake for 50 minutes or until a thermometer reads 155ºF. Remove from the oven, allow to cool for 10-15 minutes. Serve with cucumber salad.
