Turkey Meatballs:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or grated
  • 1 teaspoon ginger paste, or finely minced ginger
  • 2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 pound ground turkey or chicken
  • ½ cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Coconut Curry Sauce:

  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14 ounce) full-fat coconut milk
  • 2-3 tablespoons Thai red curry paste (depending on how spicy you like it)
  • 2 Tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ginger paste, or finely minced ginger
  • Large handful of baby spinach
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro and/or basil, roughly chopped
  • Spicy Mangos:

  • 1 fresh mango, diced
  • 1 serrano pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • Serve with:

  • Steamed rice
  • Lime wedges
    1. Preheat oven to 450-degrees.
    2. In a large bowl, whisk together egg, garlic, ginger and soy sauce. Add ground turkey, breadcrumbs, and green onions. Mix until just combined.
    3. Form the meat into tablespoons sized balls (about 15-20 meatballs) and place them on a baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes until cooked through.
    4. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallot and garlic and cook until shallot becomes translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
    5. Add coconut milk, curry paste, soy sauce and ginger. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer. Add the cooked meatballs and simmer about 5 minutes, until they’re well coated in the sauce.
    6. Remove from the heat and stir in spinach, lime juice, cilantro and/or basil. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper, if needed.
    7. Combine mango, serrano, lime zest and lime juice in a small bowl.
    8. Serve meatballs and curry sauce over bowls of rice topped with spicy mango mixture.
