Turkey Quinoa Meatballs

I have slightly changed this recipe from my original recipe. All I have done is added some ginger and panko to make the meatballs that much tastier. Enjoy! this recipe makes roughly 32 meat balls.



-1lb ground turkey

-1c cooked quinoa (1/2c dry)

-5 cloves garlic, minced

-2 green onions, thinly sliced

-1″ knob ginger, minced

-1/2-3/4c panko crumbs

-1 large egg

-1tbsp soy sauce

-2 tsp sesame oil

-1 tsp sriracha

-salt + pepper to taste

-sesame seeds for garnish!

For the sauce:

-1/4c soy sauce

-2tbsp rice wine vinegar

-1 tbsp grated ginger

-1 tbsp brown sugar

-1 tsp sesame oil

-1tsp sriracha

-2 tsp cornstarch

Combine all the meatball ingredients, form 32 small-medium meatballs. Bake for 18-20 minutes at 400F.

for the sauce, whisk together all the ingredients except the cornstarch in a pot over med-heat. Whisk cornstarch with 1 tbsp water, then add to the sauce pot. Whisk until thickened. Adjust ingredients for the sauce to your taste.
