When I eat well, I eat really really well.
Turkey Vegetable Meatballs
Serves 6 (3 meatballs each)
1 lb ground turkey
1 carrot, grated
1 zucchini, grated
1 onion, grated
5 button mushrooms, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
¼ – ½ cup finely chopped fresh herbs (I used parsley and thyme, but use what you have)
Dried red chile flakes, to taste
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 tbs olive oil
1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking dish with foil.
2 Mix all ingredients except the oil with a fork, and a light touch.
3 Shape into 18 meatballs, 1 ½” to 2” diameter.
4 Bake for 25 minutes. They will ooze a lot of liquid, so remove from oven carefully.
5 Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Remove meatballs from baking dish with tongs, and sauté in the oil until browned on all sides.
