Turkey meatballs in a garden sauce.
Garden sauce! Garden sauce? What is the woman on about? The meatballs are in a tomato and whatever you need to use up in the fridge that works together sauce.
Turkey mince is one staple you will almost always find in the fridge. It can be used in almost every mince dish imaginable, has less fat, carries flavours brilliantly and is cheap!
Last night I made turkey meatballs. Quick, easy, tasty and filling. In short an ideal family meal. If you have little ones just make the meatballs smaller and puree their sauce to hide the vegetables if that’s what you need to do.
400g lean turkey mince
1 onion finely chopped
1 pepper (you choose the colour!) finely chopped
half a dozen mushrooms, quartered
300 ml of passata
salt and pepper
2 tsp olive oil
- Season the turkey mince with salt and pepper and form into walnut sized balls. Put into the fridge covered to set up a little before cooking.
- Heat the oil in a pan and saute off the vegetables. Add in the turkey meatballs and cook until browned on all sides.
- Pour in the passata. Cook until thickened and reduced.Taste and season.
- Serve over large tube pasta.
This is another meal of my fat to fitter campaign. After eating I went for a walk, just a half an hour stroll and saw this beautiful poppy. So pretty I just had to share it with you.
