Turkey Meatballs


A tasty and versatile recipe for all blood types.

  • approx. 1 cup spelt bread crumbs.
  • 2 or 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 small onion or several green onions or chives
  • aprox. 1 cup dried cranberries
  • parsley
  • salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper (types A and AB omit.)
  • 1 to 2 lbs. ground turkey
How to make it:
  1. I use a food processor to prepare this recipe.
  2. If you don't have a processor, put very dry bread in a bag and crush it to crumbs with a rolling pin or the side of a glass.
  3. Chop everything else up fine and combine in a bowl.
  4. Toss a few slices of spelt bread into the food processor and process till you have fine crumbs.
  5. If the bread is toasted or dried out, this works better.
  6. Put peeled garlic, chunks of onion or chives, cranberries, parsley, salt and pepper into processor and process fairly fine.
  7. Add turkey and process to blend well.
  8. With clean hands, form mixture into approximately 1 inch balls, rolling meat between your palms so it holds together well.
  9. Place on broiler pan coated with non-stick cooking spray and broil at 400F until well browned on all sides, turning during cooking.
  10. If necessary, brown in olive oil in a frying pan instead.
  11. When meatballs are done, you can serve them so many ways. I like them in a plum-based sauce with tamari sauce, stir-fried broccoli, carrots and cauliflower and pineapple chunks.
  12. They can be made a little smaller and served with a dipping sauce for an appetizer, or sliced as a pizza topping.
  13. Serve them with a sauce over rice or pasta or in a broth-based gravy with mashed potatoes
  14. as allowed by your type.
  15. With nicer weather on the way,I plan to try adapting this recipe to make turkey burgers for the B.B.Q., which would taste great with a teriaki-style B.B.Q. sauce. Enjoy!
