Welcome to the first in a series of new posts. I’m hoping to post a recipe every week on a Friday, so if it tickles your tastebuds, you’ve got a whole weekend to get stuck in and report back, I do like our catch ups. So without further ado . . .
Turkey mince, lean and clean and so good rolled into balls and covered in a smooth onion and red pepper tomatoey sauce. Mmm.
Turkey Meatballs in a Tomato and Red Pepper sauce:
250g lean turkey mince
2tbsp gluten free breadcrumbs
1tbsp chopped onion (I just cut a hunk off my medium onion, and finely chopped that)
1 small garlic clove, grated
salt and pepper
1 red pepper, finely sliced
rest of the previous onion, choppped
1 carton chopped tomatoes
1) Heat a drizzle of sunflower oil in a large pan. Add the pepper and onion and sautee on a gentle heat until soft.
2) Meanwhile, mix the turkey mince, chopped onion, breadcrumbs, garlic, herbs and seasoning together in a bowl, with your hands is preferable. Roll out into as many similar-sized balls as you can.
3) Add the meatballs to the pan, increase the heat slightly and saute until fully cooked.
4) Pour over the chopped tomatoes, scatter over a little more basil and seasoning, then simmer whilst you cook your pasta.
Do let me know if you try this, or any of my recipes, I would love to hear from you.
