Ingredients

  • 2 pounds lean ground turkey (approximately 1 kilo)
  • 1 small red onion minced
  • 3/4 cup grated carrot
  • 2/3 cup chopped spinach (fresh is best as frozen gives off too much liquid)
  • 2/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a large baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or aluminum foil (if using aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray).
  • Add the turkey meat to a large bowl, along with all the other ingredients. Mix together very well with a wooden spoon or your hands, making sure every ingredient is evenly distributed.
  • Roll into balls about the size of one and a half tablespoons. Be sure all the meatballs are the same size so they bake evenly.
  • Add the meatballs to the prepared baking tray and bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15-20 minutes or until the internal temperature of the meatballs reach 165 Fahrenheit (74 Celsius).
  • Serve immediately, or let cool and store in the fridge in an airtight container.

Notes

These meatballs can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days, and in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 1 month.
