Italian Turkey Meatballs

In this healthy turkey meatball recipe, a base of sautéed mushrooms, celery and garlic adds flavor and helps keep calories in check and portions hearty. Serve these meatballs with marinara as an appetizer, on top of spaghetti or on a roll for a healthy meatball sub.

Ingredients
Serves: 6
Preparation
  • Finely chop mushrooms, onion, celery and garlic in a food processor. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the vegetable mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has evaporated, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool for 10 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 230°C (8 Gas). Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray.

  • Add breadcrumbs, parsley, cheese, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper to the cooled vegetables; stir until combined. Add turkey and mix gently to combine (do not overmix). Form into 30 meatballs (a scant 2 tablespoons each) and place on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake the meatballs until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 75°C (n/a Gas), about 15 minutes.
