Turkey Meatballs

June 16, 2016

These turkey meatballs are a bit of a saviour, to say the very least! Make up a whole batch and the extras last a couple of days. I typically put these with zucchini noodles (made from a spiralizer by Vegetti) but the photo I took here had me partner these bad boys with some gluten-free and organic quinoa noodles. Sometimes my body just needs those protein filled easier-to-digest grains! I find quinoa to be a lot less taxing on my digestive system than your normal grain such as rice. Give them a go and let me know if you love them!

 

Ingredients

Meatballs

1 pound organic lean ground turkey (hormone free preferable)

2 large garlic cloves minced

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tbsp dried Italian herbs

1/2 cup fresh basil (save half for later)

1/4 cup onion, finely chopped

High quality sea salt and pepper to taste

1 egg

2 tbsp coconut oil for baking

 

Spaghetti 

1 extra large zucchini or 2 smaller ones or GF quinoa pasta

1 jar of your favourite marinara sauce 

 

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 4-00F

In a mixing bowl, combine egg with ground turkey and the herbs, and half the chopped basil.

Make into golf ball size balls 

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until evenly brown and cooked through

Meanwhile, warm the coconut oil in a large saucepan and saute the chopped garlic. Add the remaining ingredients with the marinara sauce

Simmer the sauce for 15 minutes stirring occassionally

When the meatballs are done baking, add them to the sauce, stir and serve!

(Optional addition of yeast flakes to give that dairy free parmesan taste!)
