Asian Turkey Meatballs

October 19th, 2016 | Posted by Milana in Appetizers | Asian Cuisine | Lunch/Dinner


Yields: About 25 Meatballs (when using a 1-1/2 oz. scoop)



1-1/2 lbs Ground Turkey

5 scallions (green onions), chopped finely

3 cloves garlic, grated or minced

3/4 cup Whole Wheat Pablo Bread Crumbs

1 egg

1-3/4 tsp sesame oil

1/4 tsp ground ginger or 1/2 tsp fresh ginger paste

3/4 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp finely ground pepper


1/4 cup +2 Tbsp Sweet Chili Sauce (I get mine from Trader Joe’s)

1/4 cup Low Sodium Organic Soy Sauce or coconut aminos

3 tsp Brown Rice Vinegar

1-1/2 Tbsp Sesame Oil

2 Tbsp Organic Ketchup

3 Tbsp Brown Sugar

2 tsp tapioca flour, corn starch or arrowroot powder


Heat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, combine the meatball ingredients with your hands until fully incorporated. If mixture is too glutinous, lightly coat your hands with some water and continue. Form your meatballs using a small cookie scoop (I use a 1-1/2 oz. scoop) or a measuring tablespoon.

Using a large baking sheet covered with parchment paper and greased lightly with cooking spray, bake the meatballs for 20 min.

In the meantime, using a large deep pan on medium low heat, whisk all the sauce ingredients together until thickens (about 2 min). Add meatballs and toss to coat. Sprinkle Sesame seeds and serve with some fluffy rice and steamed broccoli.
