Adapted from Cooking Light Cookbook, 1989. Sounds very different. Hope to make it someday. Makes 24 appetizer meatballs. Each one, served with 1 tbsp. sauce is 40 calories.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the meatballs, combine the turkey and the next 6 ingredients, mixing well.
  2. Shape mixture into 24, 1-inch, meatballs.
  3. Arrange on a rack or a roasting pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  4. Bake at 400°F for 12 minutes or until meatballs are browned.
  5. While the meatballs are in the oven, make the sauce by placing the mango in a blender and process until smooth.
  6. Combine cornstarch and sugar in a small saucepan and add the pureed mango, water and remaining ingredients.
  7. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. This yields 1 1/2 cups sauce.
  8. Serve meatballs in a chafing dish with the sauce.

I like this sauce but it's a little 'gritty'. The texture is off and I'm not sure if it's the pureed mangoes or the cornstarch. It needs a little 'kick' too.
