Asian Turkey Meatballs
Adapted from The Chew
1 pound ground turkey
2 green onions, white and green parts, diced
1 tablespoon Sesame oil
(I left out 1 tablespoon of coconut oil-can't eat it)
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped (I did not add this; store was out)
1 large clove garlic, minced- my addition
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and form into small meatballs. I made about 24. Place on baking sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes until done.
Make dipping sauce while meatballs bake.
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
3 slices fresh ginger, smashed
Add all ingredients to a saucepan and heat over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes until brown sugar is dissolved and sauce just begins to thicken. I didn't let the sauce thicken hardly at all, just slightly. Serve with meatballs. Enjoy!
