Paleo Curry Apple Ginger Turkey Meatballs with Coconut Curry Glaze

I was apparently not meant to have a minute to myself today....................baby won't stop crying (teeth) and my 3-year old refuses to go to bed (can't find her blankie anywhere). I had a Naturopath appointment yesterday and was very excited to discuss it today...................but it will have to wait for another day. Instead I am leaving you with a recipe from last week that I never got a chance to post. Hope you enjoy. Its another clean, low carb, grain-free recipe. You could make the meatballs in advance or make a double batch and freeze some for another day. Or you could omit the curry and ginger, add some Italian seasoning or oregano, and serve them with some Paleo Marinara and some wheat-free alternatives to spagetti. Lots of options with meatballs.

Have a great evening. I'm pretty sure I'm in for a rough night. Good thing I whipped up some Chia Pudding for morning - I'm going to need it!

Curry Apple Ginger Turkey Meatballs.

Curry Apple Ginger Turkey Meatballs

1 clove garlic
1/4 cup minced onion
1 lb extra lean ground turkey
1 tbsp finely minced ginger
1/2 cup ground golden flax
1 egg
1 apple - peeled and shredded (I used cheese grater)
fine sea salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp curry powder (or to desired strength)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together. Make into meatballs - about 1 tbsp of mixture per meatball. Place on a greased baking sheet (I used coconut oil). Bake for 25 minutes, turning at least once.

Meatballs pre-glaze!
Coconut Curry Glaze

1 tbsp coconut oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup full fat canned coconut milk
1 tsp soy sauce (I use Brigg's gluten free organic soy)
1 tsp curry powder
fine sea salt and pepper to taste
Guar Gum to thicken - as desired/required

Melt the oil over medium heat. Add garlic and fry for one or two minutes. Add stock, milk, soy and spices. Bring to boil and then reduce heat and let simmer for 5 minutes. If you want to thicken add a very very small amount of guar gum and mix thoroughly. Add previously cooked meatballs and cook through. Serve and enjoy!
