- 1 lb. ground turkey
- 1 small yellow onion, finely diced
- 1 cup of mushrooms, finely diced
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup almond meal
- 1 tsp. oregano
- 1 tsp. dried parsley
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- drizzle of olive oil for meat mixture
- drizzle of olive oil for pan
- 1 jar of your favorite red sauce
- zucchini for “zoodles”
Mix all ingredients (minus the zucchini and marinara) together in a large bowl until they are combined evenly. Don’t be afraid to get your hands in there. Roll the mixture into meatballs.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Drizzle with olive oil. Once the pan and oil are hot, add the meatballs one by one in an even layer. Cook for 5-7 minutes and then flip. Cook an additional 5 minutes. Add your favorite red sauce and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook on low for 15-20 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.
For the zucchini noodles, I used a hand held slicing gadget. “Vegetti”s are available on amazon or at most home good stores. Many markets now also offer ready-to-use pre “noodled” zucchini in their prepared produce section. Steam for a few minutes to soften the noodles, being careful not to overcook, and top with meatballs and sauce. Enjoy!!!
