Turkey Zucchini Meatballs
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 1½ pound ground turkey
  • ¼ cup green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup zucchini, shredded and water pressed out
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • canola oil
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients (excluding the canola oil) together in a medium bowl. Shape the mixture into about 20 meatballs.
  3. Drizzle a few tablespoons of canola oil into a cast iron skillet or heavy-bottomed pan over medium high heat. Sear the meatballs in batches, until each side is golden brown. The center will still be uncooked.
  4. Transfer the meatballs to a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for about 6 to 8 minutes, until the meatballs are cooked through (USDA recommends 165 degrees Fahrenheit when a thermometer is inserted into the center).
  5. Serve immediately.
