Turkey Meatballs With Mushroom Gravy
- Ready In:
- 1hr 10mins
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 3 tablespoons brown rice flour
- 1 celery rib
- 1⁄4 cup red onion
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1 teaspoon ground mustard
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tablespoon italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper

- 1 (4 1/2 ounce) jar sliced mushrooms (drained)
- 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup chicken broth or 1 cup vegetarian broth
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Chop celery and red onion thinly, nearly a mince. Mince the garlic. Reserve 1minced clove for mushroom gravy.
- Combine the ground turkey, onion, celery, (2) garlic cloves, spices and egg whites together in a medium sized mixing bowl.
- Add 2 tbs of the brown rice flour. (You could use about a 1/4 to 1/2 a cup of cooked brown rice in place of flour). After mixing all ingredients very well, shape meat mixture by hand into 8 - 2" to 2 1/2" meatballs.
- Coat a 9" x 12" casserole dish with vegetable oil spray and place the meatballs into the casserole. Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour.
- 15 minutes before the meatballs are finished baking, start the mushroom gravy by placing the 3rd minced clove of garlic into a saute' pan with the olive oil and saute' until tender. Add the mushrooms and saute' for a few minutes over medium heat and then gradually add the brown rice flour and stir until there is a coating on the mushrooms. Add the chicken broth and reduce heat. Stir until slightly thickened and let the broth reduce to a gravy at a simmer, about 5 minutes, stirring as necessary.
- Serve the meatballs and mushroom gravy over hot brown rice or egg noodles.

I really like cooking when I have time. But what I love is good sound nutritional sense, and fresh and tasty in season foods on our table. We are active people who love rock climbing, hiking and just about anything that gets us out of doors. When it is harvest time I am canning and freezing every chance I get. Come time for snow I am shopping for warm comfort food recipes.
