Jalapeno Feta Turkey Meatballs

  • 1 pound Ground turkey I used 90/10 for more fat
  • 1/4 cup Breadcrumbs I used panko
  • 1 Jalapeno, de-seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tbsp Fresh mint, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Feta, crumbled
  • 1 Egg
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Olive oil

To Assemble the Bowl

  • Tzatziki sauce
  • Hummus
  • Cucumber, sliced
  • Cooked grain of choice we used cous cous, but quinoa or brown rice would be great
  • Sliced radishes
  • Fresh mint, torn
  • Mixed greens
  • Feta, crumbled
  • Jalapeno Sauce, we got ours from Trader Joe's


To Make the Meatballs

  • In a large bowl combine breadcrumbs, jalapeno, garlic, mint, egg, a big pinch of salt, and a few grinds of fresh black pepper. 
  • Add ground turkey and gently stir to combine. Fold in crumbled feta.
  • Heat a heavy, large skillet over medium heat. While skillet is heating form turkey into mini meatballs. This is easy to do with wet hands, so the meat doesn't stick. I got 12 mini meatballs from this recipe.
  • Add a good glug of olive oil to the hot pan, and once it's shimmering add the meatballs. Sear for ~3 minutes on each side, until a golden crust has formed and the meatballs are cooked through.

To Assemble the Bowl

  • In a bowl add the mixed greens and a scoop of cooked grains for the base.
  • Top with three turkey meatballs each, a scoop of hummus and tzatziki, sliced radishes, crumbled feta, and fresh mint. Enjoy!
