Asian Turkey Meatballs
  • 1 lb. white ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 Tablespoon low sodium soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional for more spice)
Sesame-Soy Dipping Sauce
  • 4 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh scallion
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Spray a nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Mix all of the Turkey Meatball ingredients in a large bowl until well combined. Form the meatballs into 12 balls and place on the baking sheet. Bake for 14-15 minutes** on the middle rack of the oven. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and immediately remove the meatballs from the baking sheet onto a different plate or platter to prevent them from overcooking.

  3. Serve hot with the dipping sauce (recipe below)
  4. To make the dipping sauce, in a small bowl whisk together the soy sauce through the water. Sprinkle with the scallions and the sesame seeds.
