Go Figure Recipe of the Week: Teriyaki Meatballs

Served at our Open House by Chef David, these teriyaki meatballs are a fairly simple main dish that we think you and your family will enjoy!

-1 pkg. 93/7 ground turkey (ask butcher at Albertson’s or Rosauer’s)

-½ cup each, finely chopped: apple, celery, onion

-1 tsp. salt

-1 tsp. pepper

Mix all ingredients thoroughly.  Pre-heat large sauté pan and put in about 1 Tbsp. olive oil.  Form heaping tablespoon size meatballs. (Wetting hands periodically helps meat to not stick to your hands as much.)  Carefully drop meatballs into pan so that hot oil doesn’t spatter on you.  Cook on medium heat about 6-7 minutes per side, turning over half way through, until golden brown.

Teriyaki Sauce

-¼ cup tamari

-¼ cup olive oil

-2 cloves garlic

-2 Tbsp. grated fresh ginger

-¼ cup water

-¼ tsp. xanthan gum

-2 Tblsp. coconut sugar or agave

Blend thoroughly in blender, adjust seasoning to taste.  Put a little sauce on your plate and dip meatballs in it.   Enjoy!
