It’s always good when a recipe has veggies mixed in so the kids have no idea it’s healthy! We had Nikki Gallias from Every Mindful Meal help us out this week with her Turkey Meatball recipe (with zucchini inside!) Nikki is a local Health Coach teaching her clients to learn how to eat & find their best body! She has a ton of success stories and is so inspirational! She also has a great personal story, we will learn more about her in the coming weeks! Thank You Nikki!
• Ground Turkey (1lb or 1 container)
• Avocado oil or coconut oil
• 1 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
• 1 teaspoon of salt
• 3 zucchinis
• 1 egg
• ¼ cup of almond flour
Preheat Oven to 350 and slightly grease a baking tray.
In a food processor pulse your zucchini until it is chopped very small and fine.
You can also spiralize your zucchini and then chop them to a more manageable size or just dice your zucchini.
Add the ground turkey, zucchini, garlic powder, black pepper, salt, egg and mix really well with your hands.
Once it is all mixed well add the almond flour and turn gently.
Heat avocado oil or coconut oil on a pan and add meatballs once the oil is hot.
Do this in batches.
Fry both sides until brown and firm and then put them on a gently greased baking tray.
Once you have made your turkey meatballs and they are all on the baking tray, heat in the oven for 5-8 minutes to ensure they are cooked through.
Serve warm with roasted red pepper sauce and your favorite vegetable.
Makes a great appetizer too. Bon appetite!
