Who is down for "Tasty - Tangy - Turkey" meatballs?


You must try this recipe, it is easy to make and so flavorful. The combination of the carrot and ginger flavors, elevates the flavor of these turkey meatballs. The perfect meaty addition to asian lettuce cups. The mix of seasonings, from ginger, garlic and coconut aminos adds a special layer of flavor. They key to keep the meatballs moist comes from the grated carrot and onions. Just the tasty on every bite.


These meatballs will be great over steamed Jasmin rice, seasonal veggies and a drizzle of asian dipping sauce, garnish with fresh cilantro and lime wedges. Another way I love to eat these meatballs are in asian lettuce cups. Just picked your favorite toppings like green onions, bell peppers, cucumber, dipping sauce and fresh cilantro. Just delish!


Baked to perfection, nice and juicy inside and lightly crispy outside. Garnish with thinly sliced green onions.

A secret ingredient is hemp seeds for a healthy boost of protein and vitamins.


Here are the ingredients:

  • lean turkey meat
  • diced onions
  • ginger
  • almond flour
  • salt + pepper


Here are the ingredients for the asian lettuce cups:

  • butter lettuce
  • cucumber
  • red peppers
  • green onions
  • asian dipping sauce
  • fresh cilantro

A delicious and easy recipe to enjoy with family and friends.

    Okay, you are so on-point with this recipe!! I actually use almost the same recipe as you do with just a couple of changes!!! 1. I use ground chicken (personal preference). 2. I double it!!! But, I tend to cook for multiple people. Anyway, that way, I can use 1 whole smallish onion, 1 whole carrot, and I add 1 small-medium grated zucchini for additional moisture!!! 2. I spray a jelly-roll pan with non-stick cooking spray, just for calorie control, and spritz the top of the meatballs, as well.


    It's my go-to recipe, anymore!!! If I'm going Asian, Mexican or Indian, I make as-is. If I'm going Greek or Italian, I leave out the ginger and turmeric. It's incredibly versatile!!! In fact, the first time I served it, in basically a Butter Chicken Indian sauce, my husband flat-out said, "You. Are. Kidding." when I told him they were chicken-carrot-zucchini meatballs, and he's a hard-core WI dairy-farm boy!!! Super-great recipe, and thanks so much for putting it out there!!! I've done it over rice, but I'm, like, salivating at the idea of lettuce wraps!!! Haven't made those in a while!!! :) ~Chrissie
