Fit for Fight Turkey Meatballs


I have a saying that life should never be Tuesday Meatballs. What I mean by that is that life is short enough as it is, and I would hate to live in the same pattern. Here I just symbolise it by saying no to eating meatballs every Tuesday (Not that there’s anything wrong with that). Weekly routines are a good thing, it’s just the concept of being too scared to break the ‘usual’.


Do you have any weekly habits, traditions, meals or chores that are done on the same day each week? I’d love to get some to-do inspiration =)

Anyway, here is a recipe for delicious and super healthy turkey meatballs, that we actually had on a Tuesday. Haha They are served with a colourful veggie slaw and to balance it all, I made a greek yoghurt based dressing bursting with flavours. Nom nom nom

Rainbow slaw and fresh tasting meatballs

You’ll need:
Turkey Meatballs
1 pck. mince turkey
3 spring onions
1-2 shallots
1/2 red chili
2 garlic cloves
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
1 tablespoon curry powder
Salt and pepper 

Rainbow Veggie Slaw
3 carrots
1/2 red cabbage
1/2 sweetheart cabbage
1/2 fennel
5 radishes

Flavourful dressing
1 small pot Greek yoghurt
2 teaspoons honey
2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
4 tablespoon coriander (or parsley if you’re not a fan)
1 lime zest and juice
1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger
Salt and pepper


How to:
Meatballs
Chop up the spring onions, shallots, chilli and garlic.
Mix well with the mince in a large bowl.
Add the mustard and season with salt and pepper.
Leave to rest for about 30 minutes.

Using a spoon and the palm of your hand,
shape the mince into flat meatballs and lay on a baking tray with baking paper. I added some seeds on top, but this is optional.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes depending on how big you make them.

Veggie Slaw
Using a big knife, carefully shred all the veggies as finely as possible and mix together. Drizzle with lime juice.

Dressing
Easy peasy – simply just mix together all the ingredients and flavour with salt, pepper and lime juice.
