Easy Turkey Meatballs {Whole30}

  1. 1 Egg, beaten
  2. 2 Tablespoons Tomato Paste*
  3. 1 Small/Medium Onion, peeled and grated
  4. 3 Cloves Garlic, finely minced
  5. ¼ Cup Fresh Parsley, finely chopped
  6. 1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
  7. Salt & Pepper
  8. ¼ Cup Almond Flour
  9. 1 Tablespoon Coconut Flour
  10. 1 Pound Ground Turkey*, a mixture of white and dark meat
  11. Extra-Light Olive Oil
  12. Tomato Sauce, for serving
  13. Instructions
    1. Combine the beaten egg, tomato paste, grated onion, garlic, parsley, oregano, salt, pepper, almond flour, and coconut flour. Mix well and then mix in the meat. (These meatballs are much stickier than traditional)
    2. Preheat the oven to 400º.
    3. Heat a nonstick skillet over high heat and enough of the olive oil to coat the skillet. Using a medium or large ice cream/cookie scoop*, scoop out the meatballs and drop them directly into the pan. Let them cook for about 30 seconds or until brown, then flip them over using a spoon (I found this was the easiest in order to keep them intact). Cook them until brown on the other side, about 30 seconds, and then transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment or foil. Repeat with remaining meat – you’ll end up with about 15 meatballs using a large scoop, and about 24 using a medium.
    4. Transfer the meatballs to the oven and bake for about 20 minutes for the large size, or 15 minutes if you used a medium-sized scoop. The meatballs will be firm to the touch when finished.
    5. Serve with tomato sauce.
