Doing dinner: Turkey Meatballs

So we made dinner tonight, using ground turkey, quinoa, and roasted veggies. We are a garlic loving family and there was tons of it in there.

-Ground turkey
-quinoa flour

Mix all these ingredients together until the meatballs stay together. Roll into balls and place on a roasting pan. Bake at 350* for 30 minutes.

Quinoa as followed on directions. Basically one cup quinoa per 2 cups of liquid. I make more to use through the week.

Roasted veggies. We use a stainless steel pan with olive oil, red onion and and garlic. Roast and add veggies.
Tonight we use mushrooms, asparagus, broccoli, artichokes, and bell pepper medley (Thank you Trader Joes!).
Pretty much roast til you like your veggies to hold up. We like them with a bit more crunch to them, but you can also sautee them a bit longer and have them softer. It would be good if you were making it for little ones, or older individuals who might have trouble with chewing harder veggies.

It was amazing!! Light, but filling. Good if you are following a gluten free or Paleo diet! :)

Hope you guys are having a fun and amazing weekend!!

  1. That looks so yummy! I've never heard of Quinoa flour. I'm off to check it out :) My family loves quinoa! I need to try it in some other ways. I've only ever used it in a broccoli quinoa casserole.
