Thai Chili Turkey Meatballs

Last night I tried for the first time another recipe out of one of my favorite cookbooks, Primal Cravings. I adapted it a bit – instead of ground chicken I used ground turkey, and used regular all-purpose flour instead of coconut flour (not because I didn’t want to, because I didn’t have it stocked in the house). I didn’t have 100% fresh fruit peach jam, just regular, generic store-brand peach preserves. Worked just fine, but I’m sure the real stuff would be even better! These balls make great leftovers. I took some for lunch today and am going to have them on a bed of baby spinach – YUM!

Dinner turned out amazeballs (pun intended) and it is SO EASY! I prepped the meat in the morning and placed the bowl (covered of course) in the fridge. I think that made it even better because it gave some time for the meat to soak up all the ingredients. I made sautéed zucchini and broccoli as a side — nice, light and refreshing. I seasoned the veggies with olive oil, lemon, salt and red pepper flakes. Please note the first seven ingredients are for the balls, the last five ingredients are for the chili sauce.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400º. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. I used three.
  2. Combine all meatball ingredients in a large bowl using your hands.
  3. Form balls and place on baking sheet, bake for 25 minutes.
  4. While the balls are baking, combine and stir all chili sauce ingredients in a sauté pan. Cook on medium-high until it starts bubbling.
  5. Pour the sauce in a large bowl, add the cooked balls and toss until evenly coated. I used my hands, this method works best.
