Recipe of the Week: BBQ Turkey Kabobs

BBQ Turkey Kabobs

A fun way to get your protein, this recipe created by Go Figure chef David is designed to be simple, yet tasty.  If you’re serving a large crowd, extra time and help will be needed to put the meat on the sticks.

4 Kale leaves, chopped

1 package ground turkey, 93% lean (usually slightly over a lb.)

1 Tbsp. BBQ seasoning

¼ cup cornstarch

½ onion, finely chopped

1 egg

¼ cup tomato paste

18-20 small kabob sticks (can usually be found at grocery stores)

A 2-3 Tbsp. scoop (Ace Hardware carries these)


Mix all ingredients together.  Form small meatballs with scoop, and put one meatball per stick.  After meatball is on stick, gently squeeze and form meatball to retain shape and be secured.  Wetting hands periodically will help prevent meat from sticking to them.  Grill kabobs on pre-heated BBQ 5 minutes/side.

Take a look at our waiting room bulletin board for some nice ideas on veggie kabobs and other grilled side dishes to go with your protein.  Enjoy!

Recipe of the Week: Herb Infused Tofu Dip

Herb Infused Tofu Dip

Created by Go Figure Chef David with our vegetarian clients in mind, but can be enjoyed by anyone, this dip was served at our May Open House.  It’s simple to make (does not require any cooking,) creamy, and is a good source of protein.  It also does not shout tofu when eating it.  Use with veggie sticks, on a salad, or occasionally with the whole grain cracker recipe we recently put out.

2 blocks firm tofu                                                        ½ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

½ package each: fresh oregano and thyme           ½ cup olive oil

1 tsp. garlic salt                                                             ½ tsp. xanthan gum

2 Tbsp. tamari (natural soy sauce/no sugar)          A few shakes of hot sauce

½ bunch scallion greens                                              1 Tbsp. agave


Put all ingredients in food processor or blender and blend until smooth.  That’s it!

Recipe of the Week: Turkey Meatballs with Mediterranean Dipping Sauce

Turkey Meatballs with Mediterranean Dipping Sauce

Served at our May Open House, and created by Go Figure Chef Marie, these meatballs are fairly simple to prepare, but do require some pre-planning.

1 lb. lean ground turkey

¼ cup each: onion and celery, finely diced

1 tsp. dried marjoram

2 tsp. fresh basil, diced

1 tsp. fresh oregano, diced

¼ tsp. cornstarch


Mix together all ingredients.  Allow mixture to chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours. (It can also be chilled overnight.)  This helps the meatballs to keep their shape.

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  Line a sheet pan with wax paper or parchment paper.  Form meatballs using a small ice cream scoop, then use your hands in a circular motion to roll into meatballs.  Bake for 10 minutes, then rotate pan 180 degrees for even cooking.  Continue baking for another 5-10 minutes.  Serve with sauce, recipe below.


Mediterranean Sauce

6 Kalamata olives                                       ½ cup cucumber, peeled and chopped

1 Tbsp. lemon juice                                    2 tsp. fresh oregano, diced

1 Tbsp. fresh basil, diced                           1 ½ tsp. oil

¼ cup each: orange and red bell pepper, chopped


Blend together in blender the olives and peppers.  When finished blending, mix in cucumbers, lemon juice, herbs and oil.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
