Per Turkey Meatball
Calories: 165 cal
Per Serving of Rice (yields 8 servings)
- 2 lb ground turkey
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp fresh dill – finely chopped
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 1/2 cup long grain rice
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1/3 cup lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley
- 2 tbsp fresh dill
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 F
Step 2: Place the ground turkey in a medium mixing bowl, crack and egg and pour on top of the turkey. Add in the spices, fresh herbs, almond flour and mix with your hands until fully combined
Step 3: Using a 1/3 cup, scoop the turkey mixture into your hands and form into a ball. If the mixture is sticky, add a little olive oil to your hands before forming the meatballs
Step 4: Arrange them evenly spread on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until fully cooked through and golden brown
Step 5: While the turkey meatballs are cooking, prepare the rice
Step 6: Rinse the rice until cold water 2-3 times.
Step 7: Heat the olive oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes, add garlic and cook until fragrant. About 30s-1 min
Step 8:Add in the rice (without liquid), stir until fully combined with the onions and garlic and it begins to brown lightly
Step 9:Add the broth, salt and pepper and squeeze lemon juice into the sauce pan. Cover the pan with lid and bring to a simmer. Turn the heat down and cook on low heat for about 20 minutes until the rice is finished cooking. The liquid should be fully absorbed. Take off the heat and let sit for about 10 minutes
Step 10:Add fresh herbs to the rice and stir to combine. Taste and see if any more lemon, salt or pepper needs to be added
Step 11: Assemble your bowls! Scoop in your desired portions of rice, turkey meatballs and add the custom toppings to your bow. Suggested: diced cucumber, fresh tomato and red onion. Squeeze some lemon on top to bring out the flavours and sprinkle with salt and pepper
Step 12: Pat yourself on the back for a meal prep well done!
