Increasing your fiber intake is key to helping maintain or lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle. The best way to eat more fiber is to add more vegetables to your plate, but sometimes that can be difficult to do. That's why these meatballs are so great—they sneak veggies right into the mix! Benefit your body without sacsacrificinge taste of something delicious. 

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 3/4 cup finely grated carrots
  • 3/4 cup grated zucchini
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha sauce
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (for frying the meatballs)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. 

 

2. In a large bowl, gently combine all ingredients. Form about 1 1/2-inch meatballs (about 14). 

 

3. In a large oven-proof skillet, heat the oil and brown the meatballs on all sides. Then transfer to the oven and bake for about 15 minutes—until a thermometer indicates they're 165°F.
