Recipe Ingredients for Turkey ?Falafal? Meatballs

1 1/4 lb ground turkey
2 cloves garlic, lightly crushed
1 small onion, roughly chopped
1 tsp coriander
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 pinch cayenne or more to taste
1/2 c chopped flat leaf parsley
1/2 c chopped cilantro
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 egg (for coating meatballs once they are formed)

Recipe Directions for Turkey ?Falafal? Meatballs

  1. Put everything but the turkey into a food processor and pulse several times to combine ingredients. Scrape sides down as needed and pulse again. You want a fine chop, do not pulse so much that you make a paste.

  2. Put turkey into a medium size mixing bowl. Add the contents of cuisinart into the bowl. Using hands or a spatula, thoroughly mix the contents until well combined.

  3. (At this time you have a good amount of meat mixture to make meatballs. As it?s just me eating, I just make enough meatballs for each meal, saving the meat mixture for subsequent meals and making the meatballs at the time that I will eat them. Refrigerate or freeze remaining mixture if you have leftovers.)

  4. Heat oil over medium or medium low heat. Be careful not to overheat the oil which would burn the coating. * SPRAY w/ Nonstick Spray and BAKE*

  5. Whisk the egg in a small bowl. Dip the meatballs in the egg mixture then roll in (the shredded coconut to coat) ? bread crumbs/ nothing?

  6. (Saute meatballs until center is done, approximately 4-5 minutes per side. Serve alongside Tahini sauce and cucumber salsa.)
