Moroccan Turkey Meatballs

Thursday, November 06, 2014

I made this dish the other night for dinner, and it's going to be a keeper. I got the recipe from thestonesoup.com. One of my favorite food blogs. Most of her recipes require few ingredients and are easy to throw together. I added a few of my own touches, so I thought I would share.

2 lbs ground turkey
salt and pepper
1/4 cup parsley, minced
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 heaping Tbsp tomato paste
1 15oz can tomato sauce
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp paprika
1 Tbsp corriander
1 Tbsp curry powder
1 cup chicken broth

Heat the oven to 350
Heat the olive oil in a pan with tall sides. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion gets tender. Stir in the tomato paste, ginger, paprika, corriander and curry powder. Cook for just a bit. Stir in the tomato sauce and chicken broth. Cook just until everything is combined. Season with salt and pepper if you need to.

Combine ground turkey with salt, pepper, and parsley. Take 1 Tbsp worth of the mixture and form into meatballs. Continue until all the turkey mixture is used. Put the meatballs into a baking dish coated with cooking spray. I like to use a dish big enough that the meatballs fit snugly together. Pour the tomato mixture over the meatballs Bake for 45 minutes, or until the meatballs are cooked and the sauce has thickened and browned. I like to put my serving over a big bed of spinach. It just doesn't feel right without something green on my plates now. It's also good with couscous or brown rice.
