ASIAN/ITALIAN STICKY TURKEY BALLS

Went for a healthy alternative to beef meatballs. Decided go ‘Turkey’. To boost the taste of the bland one, I included the following spices and ingredients:

  • Basil (dried)
  • Oregano (dried)
  • Parsley (fresh)
  • Thyme (fresh)
  • Onions (diced)
  • Garlic (crushed)
  • Celery (finely chopped)
  • Carrot (finely chopped)
  • Bell pepper (finely chopped)
  • Grape tomatoes (chopped)
  • Soy sauce
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Salt/black pepper
  • Sugar(sprinkle)
  • Scallion

Tried to keep a fine balance. Thus, I forego frying the balls and decided to bake at a temperature of 400 degrees fahrenheit for approximately 20 minutes. With a drizzle of olive oil, my balls were ready for a preheated oven.

On the side, a slightly sweet and sour sauce simmered.

The turkey balls soaked up all the sticky and delicious flavors of the slightly sweet and sour sauce. The result was  super-moist turkey balls that made my taste-buds jumped for joy.
