Spinach And Feta Turkey Balls

So here it is, an easy mouth-watering combination of lean turkey with two of my faves, spinach and feta. Yes, I know it looks pink because it is raw.  The husband said the photo looked like the balls had pink frosting on them. No, they are raw, ready to go in the oven. This is how it went down:

Ingredients:

2 packages of lean ground turkey

2 cups chopped fresh spinach, I chopped in a blender in 20 seconds

1 small container of reduced fat feta cheese

1 tsp of garlic/parsley powder

salt & pepper to taste

Mix all of this up in a big bowl, use your clean hands because  it is easier than using a spoon and you have to make balls anyway. Form into balls and place the balls in a lightly greased muffin tin. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 to 30 minutes or until done.

They smell so good while cooking. Such a simple and delicious way to get lean protein, veges, and some yum yum with the feta.

Let me know how your balls turn out!

Lean Italian Turkey Meatballs And Zucchini Spaghetti

Here it is, the most delicious low carb Italian meal. I got this recipe from http://www.skinnytaste.com . This is how it goes 🙂

turkeyballs

2 pkg lean ground turkey

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/4 cup finely chopped parsley

2 eggs

2 cloves of garlic crushed

Salt and pepper to taste

For the sauce:

2 tsp olive oil

4 cloves of garlic crushed

2 28 oz cans crushed tomatoes ( I used fire roasted organic)

2 bay leaves

Salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl combine ground turkey, breadcrumbs, eggs, parsley, garlic and cheese. Using clean hands, mix all ingredients and form meatballs. In a small saute pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and saute until golden. Pour crushed tomatoes into Crock Pot with the bay leaves. Add garlic and oil. I made large meatballs so I cooked on a baking sheet for about 15 minutes on 350 degrees. I then transferred the balls to the crock pot in the sauce. I cooked on low for 4 to 6 hours. I served with zucchini spaghetti. I made the spaghetti with this little gadget below

Very simple to do. Just wash zucchini and cut ends off. Lightly shred into a bowl until you get near the seeds of the zucchini. I used about 4 or 5 large zucchini to make this pan of spaghetti.

Well that is it. The husband and Piper loved it. This was very easy and healthy.
