I am pretty new to BTD, and just found out I have a family of A's and O's. Being a busy mom, I am trying to develop as many meals as possible that are acceptable for us all to eat. This is my first attempt at creating a recipe that is both A and O compliant and since my family seemed to really enjoy it I thought I might share it here.
1 lb ground turkey
1 cup shredded carrot
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
1/4 cup rolled oats**
2 tsp chopped garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 tsp ground sage
1/2 tsp thyme
2 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat oven 350 I chopped all the veggies in my vita mix to be sure the pieces were small. Saute the carrot, onion and celery in the olive oil. Add garlic near the end and sautee another minute or so. Add veggies and all remaining ingredients into a medium mixing bowl and combine well. Roll into balls about 1 1/2" and place in lightly oiled baking dish. The mixture will be pretty soft, but will firm up as it bakes. Cover and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 more minutes or until no longer pink inside. Serves 4-6 depending on appetite.
Good go-withs: green salad, rice, steamed green beans
Or, the cooked meatballs can be used in soup-perhaps an Italian themed one?
Or served with a favorite sauce as appetizers on a buffet?
Meatball flavor could be changed depending on herbs/spices added, too.
**I am aware that the oatmeal is considered neutral for O's and is a no-no for O non-secretors. If anyone wants to play with the recipe and share their tweaks I would be most appreciative!
