Asian Turkey Meatballs
Prep Time: 15-20 Minutes
Cook Time: 30 Minutes
1 Pound Extra Lean Ground Turkey
1/2 Cup Green Onions, Minced
1/2 Cup Almond Flour
1/4 Tsp. Onion Powder
1/2 Tsp. Garlic Powder
2 Tbsp. Sesame Seeds* Optional
1/4 Cup Low Sodium Tamari
4 Garlic Cloves, Minced
1 Tsp. Ginger, Minced
1 Tbsp. Rice Vinegar (or ACV)
1 Tbsp. Honey or Maple Syrup
1/2 Cup Water
2 Tsp. Corn Starch
1 1/3 Cup Cooked Rice (about 1/2 Cup Dry)
1 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Head of Broccoli, or 4 cups of bok choy.
Salt and Pepper to Taste
TIP: This glaze is excellent for chicken, beef, and tofu as well!
Preheat oven to 375 F. Cook your rice according to package, about 15 minutes. Steam your broccoli for about 4-5 minutes. Cover and set aside when ready. Using a large bowl, mix together turkey, onion, egg, flour, onion and garlic powder. Lightly grease a baking sheet or casserole dish. Form meat into about 16 small meatballs using your hands and space them out evenly on the pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Next, add tamari, garlic, ginger, vinegar, honey into a small pot over medium heat and whisk. Let it reduce (about 3-5 minutes). Then, mix your water and cornstarch into a small bowl. Whisk this mixture into the pot for about 2 minutes until sauce is thickened. Brush sauce on meatballs, or if your pot is large enough, toss the meatballs in the sauce. Toss your cooked broccoli with oil and salt & pepper to taste.
Divide into four portions and serve each rice and broccoli.
