CALORIE COUNT: 225 Calories Per ServingSERVING SIZE: 164 grams.


What you need:

3 Turkey breasts

1/3 Cup red peppers (Chopped)

1/2 Onion (Chopped)

1 Tbsp. garlic powder

1 Tsp. turmeric

1 Tsp. pepper

1/2 Tsp. sea salt

1 Tsp. rosemary

1 Tsp. thyme

3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (Separated)

Directions: (Approximate cook time: 25 minutes; Servings: 3.)

  1. Take your 3 thawed-out turkey breasts, and place them in a food processor or blender, along with 2 Tbsp. of olive oil; process until texture is smooth.

  2. Next, place your ground turkey breast in a medium-sized bowl, and mix with all of the additional ingredients, except for your last Tbsp. of olive oil; mix ingredients together until evenly incorporated together.

  3. Place your stovetop on medium-high heat, and put a large skillet on the fire with your 1 Tbsp. of olive oil; next, make 15-20 meatballs from your bowl of mixed ingredients, and place them in the skillet.

  4. Cook the meatballs in the skillet, turning each one frequently to prevent burning and to ensure each meatball is cooked thoroughly; meatballs are done whenever meat at the center of the meatball is fully cooked.

  5. When done, take meatballs from skillet, and serve while hot; for an appetizer, serve meatballs with toothpicks on a plate covered in low-sodium barbecue sauce, or for lunch & dinner serve over pasta, or with sweet potato & avocado.

  6. Eat & enjoy!
