Sweet, tangy turkey meatballs with a honey siracha glaze. My family loves meatballs and it’s my go-to recipe whenever I want to hide in there some veggies like zucchinis, mushroom, carrots, for my little eater. You can meal-prep a huge batch and save some for those busy nights. If you want it more kid-friendly, just skip the siracha and add regular tomato sauce. Hope you enjoy this recipe!
500 grams lean ground turkey
1/2 cup mushrooms, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1/3 cup chopped red capsicum
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 tablespoons tamari (or low-sodium soy sauce)
3 tablespoons pure honey
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup siracha (or tomato sauce for kid-friendly version)
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil, toasted
3 cloves minced garlic
1 tablespoon grated freshginger
Pre-heat oven at 200 deg. In a large bowl, mix the turkey, mushrooms, red capsicum, panko crumbs, onions, garlic, salt, pepper, and egg. Mix well until combined.
Form medium sized turkey meatballs and place on a lined baking tray. Bake for about 12-15minutes or until browned. You can also pan-fry the meatballs instead of baking them. I just prefer baking for less oil in it.
Meanwhile, make the sauce. In a shallow pan, add all the ingredients and simmer until it thickens.
Once the meatballs are done, tip into the sauce and cook in low heat for about 2-3 minutes to let the meatballs get soaked into the sauce. Serve warm with brown rice. I also roasted some cauliflowers and coated it with the same sauce. So good!
