Health is like a good pair of shoes. When you’re at your best health you walk comfortably in your own skin and look damn good doing it. Just like a good pair of shoes. So today I’m sharing my favorite recipe Turkey Meatballs with Spinach! It’s a Paleo inspired dish (side note I don’t follow any particular diet routine, but I am converting gradually to a Paleo diet). And for anyone who isn’t truly kitchen savvy this is beginner friendly.
What you need: 1 pound of turkey meat (grass fed preferably), sea salt, pepper, curry, refined coconut oil, a 6 ounce bag of baby spinach, 1 vidalia onion, and minced garlic.
1.) Take turkey meat out of package add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, season with 2 teaspoons of curry, and lightly sprinkle with pepper. I usually do this on a cookie sheet.
2.) Hand mix ingredients into turkey meat until it’s evenly dispersed, i.e. no clumps of seasoning.
3.) Form meat into palm sized meatballs… This is the right portion. Usually yields 8-10 meatballs.
4.) Broil for 15-20 minutes (my preference) or pan cook until completely cooked/browned, this also takes about 15 minutes.
5.) Slice onion down the center. Dice one halve and add to pan with 2 teaspoons of minced garlic, 1/4 cup of water and a tablespoon of coconut oil. Also add the cooked meat balls. Cover and let simmer for 5 minutes, stir when necessary.
6.) After rinsing the spinach in warm water. Add the spinach to pan and let slightly wilt. This should only take 1-2 minutes. If you like your spinach more tender let it wilt longer.
7.) Toss to make sure it’s thoroughly mixed and you’re done! Enjoy! ☺️
