What’s for Dinner :: Skinny Taste Asian Turkey Meatballs

1 Feb

I love finding a new recipe.  I love when a new recipe is a hit.  I love when I can share it with other people.

Enter Skinny Taste Asian Turkey Meatballs.


And something different for this Mexican food loving family.

Super easy.  My kids loved them.  My husband asked for seconds.   And I totally wanted to bring some to my neighbor the next day for her to try…but I ate them for breakfast.  I couldn’t help it.

    Are you kidding me!?!? This looks like my favorite recipe EVER!! I can’t wait to try it!! Can’t believe it is turkey. If you know a healthy rice recipe too, let me know!

    I know of one! It’s vegan, but I added scrambled egg and it was amazing. I’m sure you could double the recipe and add some frozen veggies to the mix.
    1 cup cooked brown rice
    1 tsp sesame oil
    1/3 cup minced shallot
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    2 tsp minced fresh ginger
    1 tbsp + 1 tsp low sodium soy sauce
    1/2 cup chopped green onion
    All you do is cook the rice, and let it cool. Heat the sesame oil, garlic shallots and ginger in a pan, once fragrant add the rice and soy sauce, cook a few minutes, then add the green onion and serve!
