As a mom of an independent toddler, it's becoming a challenge to make sure she gets balanced meals. One day she will eat all the veggies, another day she only wants grapes, the next it's chicken thighs and yum yum crackers. Sooooo, I tried to sneak as many veggies into a meatball as possible and the result was something my whole family fell in love with.
1/2 cup shredded carrots (about 1 large carrot)
1 cup greens (I used broccoli and spinach)
1/4-1/2 cup feta cheese
2/3 cup breadcrumbs (I actually used oat flour)
1-1 1/2 lb ground turkey
salt, pepper, garlic powder, thyme, and parsley (to taste)
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Mix all ingredients together.
3. Roll into approximately 36 meatballs about and inch to an inch and half in diameter.
4. Bake 18-22 minutes.
For Calista we served them alone. My husband added his to zoodles and tomato sauce. 😉
