Thai Turkey Meatballs (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb Options)

I’ve already said it here a few times I think, but I absolutely love cooking with minced meat. It honestly doesn’t take any time or effort and the options are just endless. Of course I love savoury beef mince or Bolognese. But mince meat doesn’t necessarily have to always be just the red meat. How about a mince chicken? Or turkey? They are perfect option for lighter recipes or Asian style meals. Like these Thai Turkey Meatballs (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb Options). Only a few ingredients and minimum time needed to create an outstanding dish.



The recipe uses corn, however, feel free to change it for example with pumpkin if you’re not eating corn. I would just suggest cutting the pumpkin into very small pieces (even smaller than corn is), so you can just mix it in raw. And you can make the cakes in a frying pan, in the oven or an air-fryer. I used the latter and they turned out perfect.

Combine these with a salad or rice (or cauliflower rice) and vegetables and you have a perfect light dinner. Or just serve them with your favourite dipping sauce as a fun appetiser.

The peckish girl:
Recipe type: Main Course
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 500g turkey mince
  • ½ onion, finely diced
  • 1 corn cob, boiled
  • ¼ cup linseed meal
  • 2 tbsp green curry paste
  • ½ tsp ginger (or ginger paste)
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • Pinch of salt
  • Fresh chilli, chopped
  • ½ handful of coriander, chopped
Instructions
  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Wet your hands, so it will be easier to work with the mixture and make little meat patties out of it.
  3. You can make these in a frying pan, oven or an air-fryer. I used the latest, with the air-fryer set on 180 C for 25 minutes. If you're going to make them in the oven, then I would suggest few minutes longer and on the frying pan probably around 7 minutes on each side on a medium heat. You can always check if they are cooked by cutting them in half and seeing if the middle is cooked through.
