recipes: whole 30 slow cooker turkey meatballs










my oh my are these delicious! we are right at one week with whole 30 and i must say the difference in how we feel in just one week is crazy! not putting anything processed, gluten, dairy, or sugar in our bodies has really made the difference. we are really enjoying it and have found ourselves being super creative in the kitchen because of it. i have always liked to cook, but experimenting with new ingredients and foods has been super fun. 

we can't wait to continue each week and share more recipes along the way. tonight, i am sharing a healthy and delicious turkey meatball recipe. we both really enjoyed these and they were super easy to make. i found this recipe from a paleo/whole 30 food blogger and I am glad that i found this one!  i placed her direct link at the bottom of the page for you to visit her site as well. she actually adds sausage in her recipe as well mixed with the group turkey! here is the recipe:

ingredients: 

  • -1 lb ground turkey (i made 2 lbs above for lunches the next day)
  • -1 tsp basil
  • -½ tsp oregano
  • -½ tsp rosemary
  • -½ tsp thyme
  • -½ tsp onion powder
  • -½ tsp garlic powder
  • -1 tsp salt
  • -½ cup almond flour
  • -1 egg, beaten
  • -1 large can of organic crushed tomatoes
  • -½ large onion, quartered
  • -2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • -2 tbsp red wine vinegar 

details: 

  1. Begin by heating a large skillet to medium high.
  2. In a large bowl, place your ground turkey
  3. In a separate small bowl, mix together basil, oregano, rosemary, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and almond meal. Add mixture to the meat.
  4. With your hands, mix together the spices and meat until well incorporated. Add in beaten egg and continue to mix well.
  5. Form meat mixture into large meatballs (about 1.5-2 inches in diameter).
  6. Grease your skillet, and add meatballs. Cook each meatball about 1 minute per side until the meat is browned (but not cooked through). Add meatballs to slow cooker.
  7. Top meatballs with tomatoes, onion, garlic, and vinegar.
  8. Cook on low for 5-6 hours.
  9. Serve plain with fresh basil, or with spaghetti squash
