Greek Turkey Meatballs

  1. Combine all ingredients for the meatballs in a bowl. Mix slowly with a spoon till mostly combined, then use your hands to finish bringing the mixture together. Be careful not to overwork the mixture.
  2. Roll the meatballs carefully into tablespoon-sized balls. Set on a parchment paper or a nonstick cutting board.
  3. Heat 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the meatballs, making sure they are spaced out and not over crowded in the pan. Cook for a few minutes until the side touching the pan is browned. Turn the meatballs over and continue to cook each side for a few minutes until they are browned all over and cooked through.
  4. Remove from pan and place on a paper towel to absorb any extra oil/grease.

Mediterranean Bowls

  1. To prepare the mediterranean bowls, start by making sure your quinoa is cooked.
  2. Next thinly slice a red onion, place in a bowl and pour about 1/4 -1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar over the top and sprinkle with salt. Toss the onions and set aside for 30 minutes. (Make sure to toss them again half way through to coat them again in the vinegar).
  3. Wash the kale, remove the stems from the entire stalk so only the soft leaves are left, and chop in small pieces. Place the chopped kale in a bowl drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Massage the kale with clean hands until the oil has soften the kale and is absorbed.
  4. In a large shallow bowl add your quinoa, kale, tomatoes, cucumbers, chopped parsley, pickled onions, greek meatballs and any sauces you desire (tzatziki, hummus, zesty lemon tahini, roasted red pepper, etc.)
  5. Enjoy!
