Health Highlights


1/2 cup Soy sauce, low sodium (teriyaki sauce)
1/2 tsp Garlic powder (teriyaki sauce)
1 dash Ginger, ground (teriyaki sauce - can use 1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger)
1/4 cup Water (teriyaki sauce)
1 tbsp Cornstarch (teriyaki sauce)
2 tbsp Honey, raw (teriyaki sauce)
4 cup Broccoli, raw (meatballs)
1/2 cup grated Carrots (meatballs)
1/4 tsp Ginger, ground (meatballs - can use 1 tsp fresh grated ginger )
454 gm Ground turkey, lean (meatballs)
1 large egg Egg (meatballs)
1/2 cup Bread crumbs, plain (meatballs)
1 tsp Onion powder (meatballs)
1 tsp Garlic powder (meatballs)
1/2 tsp Salt (meatballs)
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil (meatballs)


Mix the teriyaki sauce: combine all ingredients but the honey and whisk until combined. Whisk in the honey until dissolved.

Cut 2 heads of broccoli (about 4 cups) into really small pieces. Grate 1/2 cup worth of carrot (really finely grated is best). Peel and grate a small piece of ginger (you need 1.5 teaspoons total).

Make the meatballs: mix together ground turkey, egg, bread crumbs, onion powder, garlic powder, 1 teaspoon ginger, salt, and grated carrot. Form into small balls (about 1.5 teaspoons of the mix works well).

In a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium high heat. Add the meatballs and brown the sides for 5-6 minutes. Add broccoli and continue to stir regularly.

Once the outsides of the meatballs are cooked, add the teriyaki sauce. Bring to a simmer and cook everything for a few more minutes, until the meatballs cooked through, the broccoli is soft, and the sauce is thickened.

Serve over brown rice. Garnish with sesame seeds and/or green onions if desired (totally optional).

Makes about 52 mini meatballs.
