Ingredients You Will Need

There are only a few ingredients you will need to make these delicious meatballs. You will need your main ingredients, such as, ground turkey, onion, and bell pepper.  Once you have those key elements for your base, you can add in fun flavors like paprika, cumin, minced garlic and cilantro! You will simply combine everything together in a medium or large mixing bowl, then roll them into meatballs. I usually pan sear my meatballs in a cast iron skillet before hand because a cast iron gets nice and hot which ensures they cook through while having a nice char on the outside.

There are many ways you can enjoy these meatballs. I personally love pairing them with zucchini noodles (zoodles) to make a low-carb entrée, or add them to a nutritious buddha bowl with lots of vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt, Pepper (to taste)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika

Instructions 

  • Mix all the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl
  • Roll the mixture into 12 meatballs
  • Heat 2-3 tbsp of avocado oil in a pan, really hot
  • Pan sear them for 7-8 minutes each side (usually 3 - 4 sides)

Notes

  1. Add 1 tsp apple cider vinegar make the meatballs moist inside
  2. In order to have the flavor really sink in, cover the mixture (made from step 2) and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours.
  3. Make sure you pan or grill is hot enough so the meatballs will cook all the way through and be crispy outside. I usually use a cast iron skillet which gets really hot to give me that nice char.
  4. Choose a cooking oil that has high smoking point, such as avocado oil.
