Thai coconut turkey meatballs

Sometimes I get tired of turkey burgers and taco meat.  I came across a recipe for Thai Coconut meatballs in the cookbook Make Ahead Paleo and decided I needed to get out of my turkey rut.

 

As usual, I tweaked the recipe to suit my needs.  I used what ingredients I had on hand and I know my family likes.  Everyone loved these, even my youngest who isn’t too fond of spicy.  I ate these over green beans, but it’s excellent over rice and noodles.  The sauce is so tasty and easy to make.

Thai kitchen green curry paste, sambal oelek and minced ginger

These 3 ingredients made the recipe really easy.  I love the jarred mince ginger–it’s really a time suck during the week to peel and mince ginger, even though I love the taste and health benefits!

In the cookbook, the author cooks the meatballs in the slow cooker.  I wanted them done fast, so I broiled them for only 12 minutes and just poured the sauce over the meatballs afterwards.  Super fast, tasty and easy!
