Enjoy these tasty, nutritious turkey-based meatballs. These meatballs are certain to satisfy your appetites thanks to a tasty combination of fragrant spices, fresh cilantro, and the delicious addition of pine nuts and feta. You can prepare this recipe by following these steps.
Make sure your oven is preheated to 400 degrees Fahrenheit so that the meatballs can bake to perfection.

Mix 1 1/2 pounds of 93% lean ground turkey (or a leaner choice if you like) with 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 2 teaspoons onion powder, 1/3 cup of coarsely chopped cilantro, 1/4 cup of pine nuts, and a dash of sea salt and pepper in a big dish. You can remove the pine nuts entirely or swap them out for walnuts if preferred. Combine each component thoroughly in the mixture.

Apply a little layer of olive oil to your hands to avoid the meat mixture from sticking to them. Roll a portion of the meat mixture approximately the size of a ping pong ball, or about 1 ounce, into meatballs. Put each meatball on a baking sheet or mini-muffin pan. Continue doing this until the entire meat mixture has been used, resulting in around 20 meatballs.

To help the meatballs brown and produce a crispy skin, lightly mist them with olive oil. They should be baked for 10 to 12 minutes in a preheated oven. To get a wonderful golden brown color on the top when they are thoroughly cooked, turn the oven to broil and let them cook there for 1 to 2 minutes.

The meatballs should cool somewhat after baking before being removed from the mini-muffin pan. By doing this, meatballs are kept from overcooking and becoming dry.

For a filling nutritious lunch, pair these delicious meatballs with a crisp salad or low-carb flatbread. Lean turkey, flavorful spices, crunchy pine nuts (or walnuts), and creamy feta crumbles come together to make an exquisite meal. Enjoy these meatballs as a tasty and wholesome alternative for any occasion.

Total 22min

Ingredients for 5 servings

  • Meatballs
    • 1 1/2 lb 93% ground turkey (or leaner option to reduce the amount of fat)
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 2 teaspoons onion powder
    • 1/3 cup roughly chopped cilantro
    • 1/4 cup pine nuts
      • SUBSTITUTE: walnuts (or just omit)
    • 4oz feta crumble
    • pinch of sea salt & pepper


Step 1

Set oven to 400F.

Step 2

Mix together the ingredients for the meatballs in a large bowl. Spray your hands with a little olive oil then scoop out about 1oz of meat, about the size of a ping pong ball and form a meatball. Add the meatball to a mini-muffin tray or a baking sheet. Repeat until all the meat is used, roughly 20 meatballs.

Step 3

Lightly spray the meatballs with a little olive oil, then bake for 10 – 12 minutes at 400F, then broil for 1 to 2 minutes to brown the top. After baking, allow them to slightly cool then remove them from the mini-muffin tray to prevent them from further/over-cooking.
