Zucchini Turkey Meatballs

  • 1 medium sized zucchini, grated or use your spiralizer then score to shorten the strands 
  • 1 lb of ground turkey 
  • 1/3 cup red onion, minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs or almond flour or grated rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
* I used a 1/4 cup of Paris blend from Epicure, with the cumin and chili powder but you can vary it as your tastebuds prefer. 

First drain the moisture out of the zucchini using a paper towel. If you used your spiralized cut through the zucchini making the strands a bit shorter. Toss all the ingredients into a bowl. Mix well and then create your meatballs. Place them in a frying pan with coconut oil until cooked through. 

I use these as my snack during my low carb/high protein days. You can easily freeze the remaining meatballs for easy snacks on the go.
