IMG_0608

Meatball Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup panko crumbs
  • 1-1/4 lbs 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tbsp ginger paste
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil

Preheat oven to 450. In a large bowl combine ground turkey, panko, egg, salt, scallions, ginger, cilantro, soy sauce and sesame oil. Mix until well combined. Shape meatballs using ¼ cup for each ball. Transfer to baking sheet and bake until cooked through, about 15 to 18 minutes.

For the Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 1/2 cup + 3 tablespoons water, divided
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons ginger paste
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • In a small saucepan combine the soy sauce, honey, 1/2 cup of the water, sesame oil, and ginger. Heat over a medium-low flame and stir constantly until the honey is dissolved; about 3 minutes.
  • In a small dish combine the cornstarch with the remaining 3 tablespoons of water, then pour it into the glaze, stir well to combine.
  • Increase the heat to medium high. Cook the sauce, stirring constantly, just until thickened, about 2 minutes. Once it’s thickened remove from heat and stir in sesame seeds.

For the Slaw:

Take one bag of broccoli slaw and empty into a bowl. Add ½ cup mayonaisse, 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1 tbsp ginger paste, 1 tbsp half and half, 5 packets of artificial sweetener and a pinch of pepper. Mix well and serve.
