Savory Turkey Meatballs, Burgers... You Name It!

This is a fresh and easy twist on the good old meatball recipe.
  • 1 lb. of ground organic turkey (I prefer a mixture of dark and white meat)
  • 1small carrot
  • 1small stalk of celery
  • 1/4 of large yellow or red onio
  • One tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp of dry thyme
  • 1 TBSP of pork fat or ghee for frying
  • 1/4 cup of non-wheat flour (rice, buckwheat, quinoa) or raw sesame seeds (this step is completely optional)
Place veggies in a chopper, add salt, chili, thyme and mince thoroughly. Place the mixture in medium bowl, add ground turkey and mix well. Preheat a stainless steel or a cast iron skillet or a wide saucepan on a medium heat with pork fat or ghee.
Form the meatballs using wet hands. Dust them in flour or roll in sesame seeds and place in a skillet. Brown on one side, flip. Brown on the other side. Cover, reduce heat to very low and let them simmer for about 5 more minutes or until the juices run clear.

Needless to say that it is best to use all organic ingredients, especially when it comes to meats.
