This is a beautiful dish that is really quite simple and quick to make even during a busy work week.

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
  2. Add all ingredients together in a bowl and mix together with clean hands, ensuring everything is mixed evenly.
  3. Roll into balls about the size of a clementine or so about 2 inches wide. If you prefer smaller just be sure to not overcook!
  4. Line a baking pan with parchment paper(see image above)
  5. Place balls into pan and squeeze juice of half a lemon over entirety of pan.
  6. Bake for 20-25 mins.

I served these with Tzatziki, rice and quinoa mix, kalamata olives with a slice of bakery fresh bread sliced tomatoes and a drizzle of balsamic dressing.

NUTRITION FACTS:

Turkey serves as an excellent source of protein that is a lower fat choice compared to other meats such a ground beef.

Spinach is rich in vitamins A, C, K, magnesium and iron. It is a MUST in a healthy diet and adding them to this recipe is a simple way to get an added health boost to your meal!

Personally If I am going to have a meal that contains meat I like to boost it with extra veggies to be sure I am staying balanced. This recipe makes it so easy to do so and your taste buds will thank you!

Quick easy and great for leftovers, I hope you enjoy!
