CHICKEN/TURKEY ZUCCHINI SPICY PATTIES

CHICKEN/TURKEY ZUCCHINI SPICY PATTIES

These are very flavorful and spicy.  If you are tired of eating chicken or turkey the same way and want a new way to cook it, here is my simple recipe.  You can find ground turkey or chicken at most meat counters, just ask for it.   You can make them into burgers or pair them up with brown rice and veggies.  I honestly eat them alone with 1/2 cup brown rice or quinoa and steamed kale.

I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did! ❤


Ingredients:

Makes 12 4-oz patties

  • 3 lbs ground Turkey or Chicken
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 zucchini – grated
  • 1-2 jalapenos – diced
  • 2 rosemary stems – finely chopped
  • 1/2 purple onion – finely diced
  • freshly ground pepper
  • unrefined coconut oil for cooking

Directions:

  • Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.

  • In a skillet, place 1 tsp coconut oil over medium heat.
  • Make small meatballs about size of your palm and flatten them to make each patty.

  • Place in skillet and cook about 4-5 mins per side.  Enjoy!

HEALTHY TURKEY MEATBALLS | ALBÓNDIGAS DE PAVO

HEALTHY TURKEY MEATBALLS

These are easy, fast, healthy and full of flavor.

I often get tired of just plain meatballs, so I had to find a way to make them flavorful by playing with different ingredients.  They have a key ingredient that makes them truly delicious and full of flavor, Cilantro!  I’m Mexican, so cilantro has been part of my diet all my life, especially on Tacos!

Did you know that Cilantro is used as a natural cleansing agent to help remove toxic metals from our bodies?  People with Mercury poisoning significantly decrease Mercury levels from their bodies after introducing cilantro from their diets.


Ingredients:

This recipe is versatile and as long as the ingredients are included, they will be amazing!  You can add more or less.

  1. 2 bls Ground Turkey, 93% Lean | 7% fat

  3. 4 cloves of Garlic, finely chopped
  4. 1/2 cup Purple Onion, diced
  5. 1/2 cup Yellow Onion, diced
  6. 1 cup Sweet Tri-color Mini Bell Peppers, diced
  7. 1 tsp. Garlic Powder, optional it adds additional flavor
  8. 1 tsp. Onion Powder, optional it adds additional flavor
  9. 2 Tbsp. Mrs. Dash Original Blend
  10. 2 Tbsp. Mrs. Dash Table Blend
  11. 2 Tbsp. Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy (optional to give them a kick)
  12. Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste

Directions

  • Pre-heat ove to 450 degrees.
  • In a bowl, place the ground turkey.

IMG_3347

  • Add all ingredients and mix well until incorporated.
