Savory herb infused turkey meatballs served in a coconut sage and sundried tomato cream sauce. Delicious perfectly seasoned turkey meatballs make for a great easy weeknight dinner or meal prep for the week. So easy to make, Whole30, Gluten Free, Healthy food that makes you feel good. It doesn’t get much simpler than this!
Turkey is such a great source of protein and I have to admit, we usually only eat turkey around the holidays since ground turkey can be very bland and dry. We came up with a healthy easy recipe that tastes good and will make you wanting more!
The fresh herbs used really enhance the ground turkey and make the meatballs taste fresh. We added fresh thyme, fresh rosemary and fresh sage mixed together with chopped celery, onion and spices, the perfect flavour combinations that work so well with turkey.
Because turkey can be very dry, we served these meatballs in a creamy coconut sauce that is simmered to perfection! The fresh garlic, herbs, sundried tomatoes work so well together and of course the longer you let this simmer the better the flavours get, they just intensify so if you plan on making this as your weekly meal prep, your in for a treat! They just get better and better each day ..mmm
We hope you enjoy this delicious Whole30 recipe.
