Love these healthy meatballs. We make a big batch and freeze them after they have cooked (without the sauce) and use them as needed (with homemade sweet and sour sauce, with peppers and onions.) We also add 1/4 cup chopped spinach. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper for no stick and no mess.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Thoroughly cover a baking sheet with parchment paper or cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl add ground turkey, quinoa, red onion, garlic, parsley, basil, oregano, egg, salt and pepper. Mix well to combine. Roll into 1 to 1-1/2 inch balls and add to prepared baking sheet, spacing evenly.
  4. Bake for around 30 minutes until the meatballs are firm and cooked throughout.
  5. While the meatball are baking heat the tomato sauce in a large saucepan. Transfer the meatballs to the tomato sauce and stir to coat them. Sprinkle some parsley on top. Serve the meatballs alongside the lettuce leaves.
