Spicy Turkey Meatballs Recipe

Spicy Turkey Meatballs

Meatballs:   1 lb. lean ground turkey

¼ cup almond meal

¼ cup finely chopped onions

½ tsp. garlic powder

½ tsp. white pepper

1 egg

Sauce:   ½ cup water

3 Tbsp. distilled white vinegar

2 Tbsp. low sodium soy sauce

1 tsp. sesame oil

3 Tbsp. stevia in the raw

3 Tbsp. chopped scallions, plus more for garnish

5-6 dried chilies, chopped (most of the seeds removed, adjust according to heat desire)

2 tsp. freshly grated ginger

1 tsp. fresh orange zest

1 clove garlic, minced

 Mix the ground turkey, almond meal, onion, garlic powder and white pepper.  Add the egg and mix completely. Shape the meat into 24 meatballs and place on a baking sheet lined with greased foil.  Broil meatballs for 7-10 minutes or until well browned.  Remove from oven and set aside.

Whisk the water, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil and stevia in a medium sauce pan.  Heat over medium heat until it begins to thicken.

Add the meatballs and cover, letting the meatballs finish cooking through; about 8-10 minutes.

Sprinkle with additional scallions; then serve.
