Turkey Meatballs with Broccoli-Carrot Mash-
from Marks Daily Apple
what can I say but YUM! I have made it in the past and requested it for my birthday meal (Miguel Garza did a wonderful job making it). The entire meal took about 30minutes and was very simple to prepare. The broccoli-carrot mash has a similar consistency to mashed potatoes and isn't a starchy dense-carbohydrate! Thanksgiving is coming up and this would be a great alternative!
1 lb. ground organic turkey meat
1 small onion, minced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 large egg
3 tablespoons ketchup
3 tablespoons olive oil
In a medium bowl, mix together onion, garlic, egg, and ketchup. Add turkey meat and mash mixture with hands. When well-mixed, form 1-inch diameter meatballs and set aside on a cookie or baking sheet. Wash hands thoroughly before moving on.
1 lb. carrots, cooked well, skinned, and diced small
3 broccoli heads, cooked and stems removed
4 tablespoons fresh organic butter, room temperature
½ small white onion (optional)
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
In medium-large pot, bring 4 cups water to roaring boil. When water is boiling, add skinned carrots and cook until quite soft, about 15 minutes. Set aside.
