Yummy & Quick Lunch

Yummy turkey meatballs with ginger rice and spinach.

Lunch time is ALWYAS a hard meal to stop and remember to eat and also hard to cook for. Most of us like myself will pack up what I had the night before and eat that however I got tired of that my palette wasn’t interested. I wanted something healthy, filing but also light. Then I came up with this, meatballs quick, easy and when made with turkey are very light.

Meatball recipe

– 1 pound of ground turkey

– 1 tablespoon of grated ginger

– salt/ pepper

– 3 garlic cloves diced

– 1/4 cup brown sugar

– 2 tablespoons olive oil

Combine Turkey, ginger, salt, pepper and garlic into a small bowl, do not over work. Form into even balls. In a pan heat oil on medium high heat. Add meatballs. Brown on all sides. Turn down heat to medium low. Add brown sugar to pan and mix until smooth. Coat meat balls with the sauce you just created and let simmer until meatballs are fully cooked. Note: Turkey is very lean which mean it dries out fast, do not over cook your meat.

Ginger Rice Recipe

– 1 cup rice

– 1 1/2 cups water

– 1 tablespoon of grated ginger

– zest of 1 lemon

– 1/2 cup chicken broth (low sodium or home made)

Add water, chicken broth, and ginger into the water. Once boiling, add rice. Lower tempt to medium low. Keep an eye on your rice you don’t want it to over cook. Drain if needed. Add lemon zest.

I do hope you enjoyed this amazing recipe!
