BBQ turkey meatballs

Meatballs are one of those foods that seem safe if you are wheat or gluten free, but generally speaking, they usually contain breadcrumbs which is a bummer. This recipe gives you a super tasty option if you are craving meatballs. I use BBQ sauce in this recipe, but you could easily use marinara sauce and throw it on top of some gluten free pasta for some awesome spaghetti and meatballs.

Ingredients: serves 4

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/2 cup brown rice (or any gluten free) bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 green onions, diced
  • 3/4 cup Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce (which is gluten free) 
  • 2 cups cooked Jasmine rice 
Combine all the ingredients up to the olive oil in a bowl. Mix well and form your meatballs. I like making tiny, bite size, meatballs but you can make bigger ones if you want. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown the meatballs on all sides (about 6 minutes) and then remove from the skillet. In a pan, add the meatballs and the sauce, cover and simmer for 20-25 min, stirring every few minutes. Serve the meatballs over rice and top with green onions. Enjoy!
