Dukan Asian Turkey Meatballs

We both LOVED these meatballs!

We have fallen way behind in our posting!  Partly because the female half of this couple has been fighting off a sinus infection.

We didn't expect to love these so much, but we sure did.  We just might be making these again very soon.

The male half of this couple tasked the female half of this couple with cleaning out the kitchen.  Our cupboards, refrigerator and pantry have been getting quite full.  We decided to start making things with only items we had in our kitchen and these turkey meatballs are one of those creations.

Makes 16 large meatballs
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 15 minutes, 500 degrees Fahrenheit

Meatball ingredients:
1 lb. ground turkey, lean
2 t. minced onion, dried
1/4 c. oat bran
1 garlic clove, minced
1 t. ground ginger
1/2 t. kosher salt
1 T. shoyu (soy sauce), low sodium
1 1/2 T. white miso paste
1 T. sambal oelek (Korean ground chili paste)
3 green onions, chopped
1 egg

Dipping sauce ingredients:
2 T. shoyu (soy sauce), low sodium
2 t. sesame oil
2 T. lemon juice (or lime juice)
2 T. water (tap)

Mix all ingredients together.  Form into meatballs (you could also use this as a burger recipe).  Place on baking sheet, we sprayed the sheet with a little bit of olive oil spray.  Bake at 500 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes or until cooked through.

Mix your sauce ingredients together while your meatballs are baking.  It's not allowed during the Cruise Phase of the diet and we actually reduced the amount of sesame oil for our sauce.  Or you can eat it without dipping sauce.
