Ginger & Turmeric Meatballs
1 lb ground beef
8 oz carrot, shredded ~ (2 cups) *
8 oz zucchini, shredded ~ (2 cups) *
4-6 oz onion, (1 small or 1/2 large) shredded *
2 1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (optional)
Shred carrot, zucchini and onion. We use a food processor with the grating attachment.
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients until well combined.
Take a heaping tablespoon and make a ball with your hands. Place on baking sheet. We usually end up with about 24-26 balls.
Bake for about 30 minutes, checking half-way through.
We often serve ours with roasted spaghetti squash, cracked pepper, and a little olive oil
