These spinach turkey meatballs are moist and flavorful, loaded with veggies and require no binders! They’re great for meal prep because you can add them to pasta, sandwiches or salads throughout the week.
I am so excited about this spinach turkey meatballs recipe! It’s such a simple recipe… all you need is ground turkey, veggies and spices. No flour, no bread crumbs and no eggs!
The first time I made them I was so worried that they wouldn’t stick together because we left out the flour and egg, but alas they held together perfectly. And the texture and flavor was sooo good!
I love making these meatballs as part of weekly meal prep because one batch makes a ton of meatballs (about 30) and they can be used in so many different ways!
I love serving them over zucchini noodles (or regular noodles) with pasta sauce as a main dish for dinner or as a protein option on salads. I’ve also been known to grab them straight from the fridge for a protein-rich snack. Cold meatballs FTW!
Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Make sure your onion, carrot and spinach are finely chopped as you don’t want huge chunks of veggies in the meatballs. Pro tip: Chop all your veggies in your food processor to save time!
In a large bowl add ground turkey, chopped veggies and spices. Gently combine, using clean hands if needed. Roll meat mixture into 1-2 inch balls and place on prepared baking sheet about 1 inch apart.
Bake until outsides are lightly browned and centers are no longer pink, about 25 minutes. Serve warm over your favorite noodles and sauce. Let cool before placing in an air-tight container if you’re making these as part of your meal prep.
These spinach turkey meatballs are great for meal prep! Here’s how to store and reheat them:
Refrigerator: Let meatballs cool completely then store leftovers in an airtight container for 4-5 days.
Freezer: Let meatballs cool completely then store in the freezer in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
Reheating: If meatballs have been frozen, thaw them in the fridge overnight. When ready to enjoy, reheat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes or bake in a 350°F oven for 10-15 minutes, until warm throughout.
