Spinach Turkey Meatballs
These simple clean eating Popeye turkey meatballs are moist and flavorful, loaded with veggies and require no binders! Meal prep a batch early in the week so you can add them to pasta, sandwiches, salads and more throughout the week!
- 2 pounds ground turkey
- 1 medium yellow onion finely chopped
- ¼ cup finely chopped carrots
- 3 ounces (about 3 loosely packed cups) baby spinach finely chopped
- 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 Tablespoon fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 ½ teaspoons sea salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- olive or avocado oil cooking spray
Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking tray with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Make sure your onion, carrot and spinach are finely chopped as you don’t want huge chunks of veggies in the meatballs. I like chopping all the veggies in my food processor to save time.
In a large mixing bowl add ground turkey, chopped veggies and spices. Gently combine with a wooden spoon or hands.
Roll meat mixture into 1-2 inch balls and place on prepared baking sheet about 1-inch apart.
Bake until outsides are lightly browned and centers are no longer pink, about 25 minutes. Serve warm.
Let cool before placing in an air-tight container if you’re making these as part of your meal prep.
