Deana’s Turkey Meatballs


16 oz low fat ground turkey
1 finely chopped leek
3 Tbsp. fresh chopped parsley
1 t. dried Italian seasoning
½ t. sea-salt
¼ t. fresh cracked pepper
¼ t. minced garlic
1/8 t. garlic powder
1 beaten egg
1 c. shaved cauliflower rice (raw, do not cook as it will change the consistency and this is what HOLDS the meatball together without the traditional use of breadcrumbs)
1-2 Tbsp. oil for cooking


1. In small mixing bowl, use hands to mix all ingredients until well blended.
2. Scoop 2-3 Tbsp. of turkey mixture onto wax paper.
3. Cook meatballs in pan with oil until cooked all the way through.
4. Serve with spaghetti squash and sugar free marinara sauce- or with 2 cups of your favorite vegetable and Ideal Protein sauce.
